What We All Look at During Dental Exams



Posted on 4/15/2020 by Crossroads Family Dental
What We All Look at During Dental Exams Many patients, when they first visit our office, may feel a bit apprehensive, especially when they undergo an exam. They often ask us what we are looking at during the assessment. That is why we provide the latest in technology, such as an intraoral camera. This camera is designed to educate the patient, so he or she makes more informed dental decisions.

What We Inspect during an Exam

When we examine the teeth, we visually check soft spots and signs of decay. We also look at the gums and check the soft tissues. We use a probe to determine the depth of the pockets to make sure they are healthy and keeping the teeth anchored in place. We also check the fillings to make sure they are in good shape. In addition, we check for cracks or chips in the teeth. We make it our goals to check all aspects of the teeth and gums to make an accurate assessment and diagnosis. We use x-rays or imaging machines to support our diagnoses.

How X-rays Help or Imaging Equipment Helps?

X-rays and imaging equipment, during an exam, allow us to see if there are problems with disease or decay between the teeth. We also use the intraoral camera to show the patient where he or she may need to brush and to get a closer view of each tooth. Our goal is the check the teeth and gums and make sure they are healthy, disease-free, and functional. If you have not had a dental exam in the last six months, now is the time to schedule an appointment. We can help you make the most of your smile. Give us a call today to schedule a cleaning and exam. The more time you devote to your dental health, the better you will feel physically and mentally. Don't delay when it comes to scheduling a check-up and cleaning, as doing so may lead to a serious future dental problem.
