New Patient Exam And Xrays

Dental Exam

The most important part of every regular dental office visit is a thorough, in-depth exam performed by one of our experienced dentists. After reviewing your medical history and dental x-rays the doctors will perform an examination of your mouth. They’ll be looking for inflammation, gum recession, performing an oral cancer screening, evaluating your bite, checking for any decay (cavities) or cracks on the teeth, or any other changes in your oral health.When you have regular dental exams, professional dental cleanings, and routine x-rays, you make it easier to identify any dental problems you may have early on – when we can treat them with simple and more conservative treatments.

Digital -rays

Dental radiographs (X-rays) are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without X-rays, problem areas may go undetected.

Dental x-rays may reveal

  • Cysts or abscess
  • Decay between teeth
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort and your teeth.

Are dental x-rays safe?

Dental x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are considered safe. Dentists take necessary precautions to limit the patient's exposure to radiation when taking x-rays. These precautions include the use of lead apron to protect the body and the use of modern and fast films to cut down the exposure time of each x-ray.
