Oral Examinations

Ideally twice a year, you'll see your dentist for a regular oral exam. These give us the opportunity to identify any oral health issues and develop a plan to treat them accordingly. 

During your exam, your dentist will take a close look at the health of your teeth, gums, bite and jaw. The exam may also include dental X-rays, an oral cancer screening and other diagnostic procedures.

Oral Cancer Screening

Any part of our mouths or surrounding tissues can be affected by oral cancer. During your exam, the dentist will check your face, lips, tongue, throat, neck, tissues and gums for any signs of oral cancer, which can be difficult to detect with the naked eye. 

Oral Health Care at Home

Be sure to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time to keep your smile healthy between dental appointments. Don't forget to floss at least once each day. 

Hygiene Cleaning

Before or after your exam, your dental hygienist will complete a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums to prevent and treat disease. 

To start, a scaler will be used to remove any plaque and tartar buildup. Next, the hygienist will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any remaining stains or plaque. This will be followed by a thorough flossing of your teeth and gums. 

Fluoride Treatment

Are you or your child at high risk of tooth decay? Your dentist may also recommend a fluoride treatment. This natural mineral can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel, preventing or reversing tooth decay.
