Complete Oral Exams
During your initial visit to Natick Dental Health, our skilled dental team will perform a complete and thorough oral exam. During subsequent check-up visits, your dentist and hygienist will also include the following:
Examination of diagnostic X-rays: Essential for detection of any decay, tumors, cysts, or bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
Oral cancer screening: We examine your face, neck, lips, tongue, gums, and throat for any signs of oral cancer.
Gum disease evaluation: We check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
Examination of tooth decay: We use special dental instruments to check all tooth surfaces for decay.
Examination of existing restorations: We examine the condition of existing fillings, crowns, and other dental restorations.
Feel free to contact us at our Natick dental office if you have any questions about oral exams or to schedule an appointment with our team of dental health experts.
