The dental exam consists of the dentist looking inside your mouth for damaged, missing or decayed teeth, early signs of cavities, condition of your gums, etc.
A check up exam includes dental x-rays which are an important diagnostic tool in detecting different forms of oral disease, cavities, etc.
Our digital dental x-rays can help detect :
- Bone loss.
- Interproximal decay.
- Poor tooth and root positions.
The dental exam can catch problems early—before you see or feel them—when they are much easier and less expensive to treat. A regular dental checkup and teeth cleaning is recommended every 6-12 months. Your dentist may recommend more frequent visits depending on your oral health and gum condition.
