By having your teeth examined regularly, the dentist can aid in detecting and preventing any health issue or disease before it becomes serious. This makes it easier for the staff to treat the problem when it is small. If left untreated, the problems may worsen and will result in more expensive, extensive procedures required for treatment.
Dental examinations generally include the following
- Gum Disease screening
- Oral Cancer screening
- Visual tooth decay evaluation
- Visual gum disease examination
- Gum pocket measurement and tracking
- X-ray examination to detect: tooth decay, cysts, tumors, problems below the gums and other hidden issues
