Your oral health is connected to the overall health of your body, and a Dental Exam is an important step in ensuring everything is working as it should.
What's involved with a Dental Exam?
During your dental exam, your dentist will check for tooth and root decay, gum and bone disease, and check your bite and jaw for any problems. They’ll also look beyond your teeth for signs of more serious medical issues, including diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and oral cancers. Symptoms of these conditions often appear first in the mouth, making your dentist the key to early diagnosis and treatment.
