During a dental examination, the dentist will thoroughly check the teeth, gums, jaw, and bones for any signs of decay or oral problems. Dental examinations are used to detect early signs of concerns including cavities, oral cancer, gum disease, and more. The dentist will use dental X-rays to help diagnose any problems that cannot be seen with the eye, such as damage to the jaw or an abscess. Following the dental examination, patients will usually receive a dental cleaning.
The typical cost of a dental examination may vary by patient depending on what is being performed, but since it is considered preventative care, all or part of the cost of these examinations are usually covered by dental insurance. Our office will confirm the patient’s coverage before sending a bill for out-of-pocket expenses.
It is suggested that patients undergo routine dental examinations at least once a year. This helps the dentist to check the patient’s oral hygiene and monitor or prevent any problems.
Exams While Pregnant?
Pregnant patients are encouraged to get a dental examination during pregnancy, since this causes many changes to the body, including dental concerns.
