Comprehensive Dental Exams
Unlike the checkups you had as a child, comprehensive exams are in-depth evaluations of your oral health history and current mouth, teeth, gum, neck, jaw and throat condition. Performed periodically, these exams can provide valuable insights about your teeth and gums. They can detect early stages of oral cancer and gum disease while also examining the condition of any previous dental work on your teeth. That’s why Tooth Love uses comprehensive dental examinations to help formulate long-term care strategies for our patients’ oral health.
Comprehensive dental examinations generally include:
- Review of your medical history form and dental insurance information
- Dental X-rays
- Oral cancer screening
- Examination of teeth and gums
- Evaluation of biting, chewing and swallowing function
- TMJ assessment
