During the oral exam, we will look for signs of tooth decay, gingivitis, and periodontitis (gum disease). We also examine all soft tissues for irregularities or injuries and evaluate the TMJ.
You may also be asked about:
Recent toothaches or tenderness you have experienced
Activities you participate in that may affect the condition of your teeth (for example, sports)
Cosmetic concerns you may have
After the exam, a personalized treatment plan will be developed to improve your oral health.
