What’s Involved at a Dental Check-up

At the first appointment for a new patient, an hour will be set aside to fully review your medical history, discuss any dental concerns or questions you may have, and fully analyze and document your oral health.

This analysis involves taking any necessary radiographs, an exam of your temporomandibular joints, intraoral soft tissues, full tooth-by-tooth exam, bite exam, full six point gum probing and more. At the conclusion of this new patient exam, the dentist will sit down and work out a customized treatment plan that addresses any oral problems they saw.

A dental check-up on a patient previously seen by one of our dentists involves them taking a few minutes to analyze your oral health, review any needed X-rays and answering any questions you may have. The dentist will also thoroughly examine your gums, teeth and oral tissues.

The principle things our dentists are looking for are cavities and gum disease, along with any other oral condition outside the range of normal. Gum disease can affect your overall health, but if detected early can be treated and reversed.

Dental check-ups also include screenings for oral cancer, a serious disease of the mouth, lips, or throat, but highly curable if detected and treated early.
