A dental examination is by far the most underrated service in dentistry.
A proper, thorough examination involves the inspection of your jaw, face, lips, oral mucosa, tongue, gums and teeth.
Why Dental Examinations Are Done
Done properly an examination can pick up minor issues before they become major ones. The time and money spent on a dental examination can easily make up for itself in preventing costly, painful and serious issues in the future.
People that don’t come to the dentist until they are in pain often don’t realise that dental disease can go for years without causing any pain at all, gradually getting worse and more costly. Once the pain starts sometimes it is too late.
Most people know that dental examinations can detect decay and gum disease but it can also give insight in to other things such as:
- Chronic painless disease that can effect the health of your body
- Inflammatory disorders that can effect your health
- Your cosmetic dental options
- Oral cancer
- Painless infections
- Impacted teeth
- Diseases of the bone
- Health of the roots and pulp of the teeth
- Many many more…
