Comprehensive Dental Exam


 

 

The dental examination is a diagnostic evaluation of a patient’s overall oral health and hygiene.

During a dental examination, the doctor or hygienist may…

  • check for signs of decay or periodontal disease
  • ask about any medications
  • take dental x-rays
  • evaluate occlusion (bite)
  • evaluate jaw
  • discuss proper cleaning
  • remove stains or debris
  • take a dental impression

The doctor or hygienist may also perform an oral cancer exam. This involves feeling around the cheeks, gums, and tongue, under the jaw, and the sides of the neck for signs of oral cancer.
