Oral Examinations

Regular oral exams, ideally performed twice a year, give your dentist the opportunity to find oral health issues and develop a plan to treat them. 

During your exam, your dentist will closely examine the health of your teeth, gums, jaw and bite. Exams may also involve dental x-rays, an oral cancer screening and other diagnostic procedures.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer can infect any part of the mouth or surrounding tissues. During your exam, your dentist will inspect the face, lips, tongue, neck, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer that are challenging to detect with the naked eye. 

Oral Health Care at Home

To help keep your smile healthy between dental appointments, brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, and floss at least once a day. 

Hygiene Cleaning

Before or after your exam, your dental hygienist will complete a cleaning of your teeth and gums to help to prevent and treat gum disease, tooth decay and other oral health conditions.

To start, they will use a scaler to remove any plaque and tartar buildup. Next they will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any leftover stains or plaque, followed by flossing your teeth and gums.

Fluoride Treatment

If you or your child is classified as being at high risk of tooth decay, your dentist may also recommend a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to help prevent or even reverse tooth decay.
