We recommend a thorough oral examination by a dentist once every 6 months. During this examination, we will:
- Review your oral and overall health history
- Examine your extra-oral structures including muscles and jaw joints
- Assess your gums and other soft tissues for recession, inflammation, and abnormalities
- Inspect your teeth for signs of decay, wear patterns, and the condition of any previous restorations
Current digital x-rays are used to assess areas that cannot be visualized directly. We also use intra oral pictures to help illustrate your overall oral health and to compare to previous pictures to assess long term changes.
