What will the dentist do?

Our dentist will examine your mouth and also ask some questions. These questions include:

  • Your reason for attending the dental exams
  • If you have noticed any problems like sensitivity or pain
  • Your general health and medications because the medicines you take also affect your oral health
  • How you care for your teeth because the right oral hygiene routine can prevent gum disease and tooth decay
  • If you use tobacco or alcohol because it can harm your oral and general health.

Some of the questions the dentist will ask will depend on the observations from your mouth

During your dental examination, you can anticipate the following:

  • The dentist will carefully inspect your neck and face to ensure their healthiness.
  • An extra oral examination will be conducted to detect any abnormal conditions.
  • A thorough screening of the soft tissues will be carried out to identify cancerous or pathological lesions. This examination will encompass the inside of your mouth, lips, cheeks, tongue, the back of the throat, and the roof of your mouth. These areas may exhibit signs that are not readily detectable or visible.
  • The gums and teeth will be examined to assess their health and look for indications of damage, decay, or gum disease.
  • For children, the dentist will assess the development of the jaw and teeth to determine if orthodontic treatment is necessary.
  • A comparison will be made between the current state of your mouth and its condition during your previous appointment.
  • The dentist may determine the need for additional information by utilizing plaster models or X-rays to evaluate how well your teeth come together when you bite.
  • If treatment is required, the dentist will inform you of the available options and their associated costs.

Please note that if this is your initial visit, the dental examination may take longer. X-rays will be taken to assess bone levels for gum disease and decay evaluation. Additionally, the dentist may capture photographs of your gums, other tissues, and teeth using an intraoral camera. These photos will serve as a reference for future examinations to track any changes.
