What can I expect at my dental exam?
Dental examinations generally include screening for the following:
|•||Gum disease, gingivitis, or any signs indicating infection|
|•||Oral cancer screening, we check for signs of lumps or lesions|
|•||Indications of tooth decay|
|•||Measure the gum pockets and track their changes|
|•||X-rays are used to look for any hidden problems|
Dental exams should be thought of as part of your annual medical checkup, your oral health is an important part of your medical health, and your mouth says a lot. For more information on a dental exam with Brian Alder, DDS, contact our Vancouver, WA office at: (360) 831-0831
