Your affordable family dentistry clinic holds the keys to your lifelong oral health. A routine dental exam is a starting point for assessing your dental health, determining your risk of tooth decay and gum disease, and helping you to develop a good preventative maintenance plan. If you find dentists to be scary or intimidating, knowing exactly what happens during a typical exam may help. Here are a few details to help you understand what to expect.

Family Dental Facts: What to Expect During your Dental Exam

In addition to looking at your teeth and gums, your dentist will probably perform most or all of the following tasks:

  • Ask about your health problems and make a list of your current medications
  • Examine prosthetic devices such as dentures or bridges
  • Examine your mouth for signs of oral cancer
  • Make dental impressions of your teeth to aid in treatment
  • Perform an advanced periodontal exam
  • Discuss tooth replacement or advanced dental procedures if needed
  • Develop a treatment plan for any existing dental problems
  • Check your jaw for bite problems
  • Clean your teeth and remove stains
  • Demonstrate proper oral hygiene techniques
  • Discuss diet and lifestyle habits that may be affecting your oral health
  • Perform a variety of dental X-rays
  • Refer you to a specialist for advanced treatment if required
  • Recommend a follow-up visit
