Dental Exams/Checkups in Orangeville

Besides brushing and flossing your teeth, occasional dental exams are also an important factor in maintaining proper oral hygiene. It is recommended that one should schedule a dental checkup twice a year. During a checkup, dentists will perform a set of procedures to assess any damage to the patient’s teeth, and observe any abnormalities inside your mouth. The entire dental examination lasts no more than an hour.

What happens during the dental exam?

  • The dentist will start by examining your face and neck. This physical examination is meant to check for any abnormal signs such as swellings, bumps or lumps
  • Examining your teeth will be the next step of the exam. The dentist will look out for any cavities, cracked teeth, decayed teeth, discoloured teeth or any other complications
  • Inspecting the inside of your mouth is the next step. During this part of the dental examination, the dentist will look out for any anomalies in the soft tissue. He or she will be checking for any ulcers on your lips, tongue, or cheeks. The dentist will also perform an oral cancer screening and will check your bite and your jaw joints for any problems
  • Following that, the dentist will carefully inspect your jawbone and gums, which form the base of your teeth. The dentist will specifically check for any signs of periodontal disease, gingivitis, or bone diseases. If the dentist finds that you have serious gum issues that are rapidly developing, he may recommend visiting a periodontist (gums specialist)
  • Lastly, the dentist may also give you instructtions on how to brush and floss properly if he/she finds out that you are not properly doing that

Teeth Cleaning & Dental X-Rays

Teeth Cleaning

After evaluating oral hygiene, your dentist would likely refer you to a dental hygienist to perform a deep cleaning of your teeth, as necessary. This process involves specialised equipment and tools that remove plaque, tartar, and stains.

X-Rays

A physical examination on its own is not enough to thoroughly inspect all possible teeth problems. Therefore, an X-ray must be included in any dental exam. X-rays allow for a more precise look into the condition of your teeth below the surface. An x-ray will also provide a better image of the jawbone structure. This will enable the dentist to detect all bone issues or potential gum diseases. Any issues that may have gone undetected during the physical examination, will be detected thanks to x-ray images. In some cases, a 3D dental scan would be required.
