Dental Exam

Woman smiling while dentist talks.Exams can be rather nerve inducing, especially when it involves your mouth. A routine dental exam is one that helps you keep your oral health intact, while also helping you to make plans to keep your mouth healthy. We at All Star Dental & Implant Center offer the best dental exams to make sure your mouth is well guarded.

A routine dental exam is one of the first things we do with preventive dentistry. This is where we take a look at what is going on with your mouth and figure out if you have any problems cropping up. Most people tend to only go to the dentist whenever they are in pain, or when they know something is wrong. This is not only expensive but often by the time something hurts in your mouth, it can be too late to fix it. That is why it is imperative to visit the dentist at least twice a year.

What Can You Detect at a Dental Exam?

A dental exam can pick up any anomalies in your mouth, and these can include tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and even oral cancer. All of these are not only hard on your mouth, but they can also be very hard to fix if they are not caught early.

How Do Dental Exams Work

If you have a healthy mouth and a good oral care routine, then dental exams might need to be every six months or so. For those with gums that are not as healthy, or with high-risk factors for oral disease, we will recommend that you have dental exams much more often.

When you go to the dental exam, we will ask you a few questions about your medical history to start with. Some of these questions focus on the medications that you are taking, your allergies, and any habits you have like smoking or drinking alcohol.

Then we ask if you have any medical conditions that you are being treated for. Once we have that information, we can build your own dental plan.

Examining your Teeth

Once all the questions and answers are done with, we investigate your teeth, gums, and jawbone to look for any potential risks. This is done with x-rays, a dental cleaning, and in some cases an oral cancer screening.

The teeth cleaning might seem like an extra step, but having your teeth be clean of tartar and plaque can help with the examination. Once the examination is done, we will come back with you and break down the results of your testing.

If any risks are showing themselves, such as a risk of gum disease, we will talk with you about preventative measures. If you have no problems, then we will work with you to keep your mouth that way.

A dental exam can be a great way to prevent any damage to your mouth. There is nothing to worry about as the dental exam goes on, and once it is complete you will have a much better understanding of your mouth.
