Your teeth should last a lifetime. A healthy mouth allows you to chew properly, speak clearly, and smile confidently. Your oral health affects your general health. Taking care of your natural teeth contributes to your overall well-being and enables you to relish your life.
The dental examination generally consists of assessing and evaluating your oral condition, which involves the analysis of soft and hard, extraoral and intraoral tissues. The oral examinations also provide information about your overall health, as we know that our oral and general health are interlinked and influence each other.
A complete dental examination at our office, the Balsam Dental, will include the following:
1. EXAMINATION OF TEETH
The doctors and hygienists conduct a visual examination of your teeth to assess the existing irregularities in your mouth and check for clinically visible signs of tooth decay, fractures, clenching or grinding or any other concerns that may require attention.
X-rays are considered to be an important diagnostic tool used in dental examination in order to detect periodontal disease, tooth decay, tumours, cysts, development problems, or any other abnormalities that are not clinically visible in the mouth.
Many conditions, such as abscesses, tooth decay and bone loss, can cause serious consequences before they even show significant symptoms.
2. WEAR AND STRESS CHECK
By looking for early signs of stress or wear on teeth, we evaluate the potential future problems and find ways to prevent them in the initial stages.
3. PERIODONTAL EXAMINATION
Care and restoration of the teeth are pointless if the periodontal (supporting) structures of the teeth are unhealthy and teeth do not have proper support. It is essential to maintain the health of the gum tissue and bone surrounding the teeth.
Our dentists and hygienists will check for early warning signs of periodontal (gum) disease and explain the procedures necessary to keep your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime.
4. ORAL CANCER SCREENING
In oral cancer screening, our dentists check the hard tissues of the mouth, such as tooth and bone, and also evaluate the soft tissues. Moreover, the inside surfaces of the mouth are also carefully evaluated to assess any changes, which can be precursors to different forms of oral cancer.
Then the dentist will explain his evaluation to you and will suggest you the appropriate treatment.
5. TEMPORO-MANDIBULAR JOINT (TMJ) EXAMINATION
This examination involves the assessment of the health and functionality of your temporomandibular joints (TMJ). During the examination, the dentist will palpate the muscles of mastication (the muscles you chew with) to determine their extent of tenderness, assessing for any signs of inflammation or dysfunctionality. Afterwards, the dentist will assess your bite in order to see if there is any need for correctness (occlusion).
