Regular dental checkups and oral exams are essential for good overall health and well-being.
And yet, it’s far too often the case that people put off their dental visits for long periods at a stretch.
Here is a look at the first-rate oral exams we offer at Dental Partners of Boston – conducted by our highly dedicated and conscientious team of professionals.
Examination of Diagnostic Low-Radiation X-Rays
With low-radiation x-rays, we can detect decay, spot tumors, and cysts, and diagnose bone loss, which will then allow for quick and effective treatment and correction.
Low-radiation x-rays are also useful for determining the precise positions of your teeth and roots.
Oral Cancer Screening
Our oral cancer screening involves a thorough examination of the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, soft tissue, and gums – to spot cancer in its early stages.
Gum Disease Evaluation
Our team will investigate your gums and supporting bone structure for any signs of developing periodontal disease.
Tooth Decay Screening
Tooth decay screening is conducted via a close examination of all your tooth surfaces. If any issues are identified, necessary recommendations will be made swiftly.
Examination of Your Existing Restorations
Your existing fillings and crowns need to be monitored and maintained – and we will conduct appropriate evaluations for that purpose.
An irregular or otherwise compromised bite can harm the structure of your face, and can even contribute to issues such as TMJ. That being the case, we will evaluate your bite, notify you of any issues, and make recommendations as required.
Everyone wants a beautiful smile. If you’re not happy with yours, we can conduct a smile analysis to put you on the fast track to achieving the smile of your dreams.
Why regular dental exams are essential
Regular dental exams are essential for all sorts of different reasons – not least of all the fact that the mouth is the primary entry point to the body.
Poor dental health can cause a slew of other health conditions, and in extreme cases, can even be life-threatening.
Good dental health is also essential for enjoying everyday life without unnecessary pain or complications. No one wants to have trouble eating, speaking, or even sleeping peacefully.
Finally, the state of your mouth and teeth will have a lot to do with the impression you make on others and the social implications that go along with that. For that reason, it’s essential to keep your teeth looking presentable in addition to ensuring they perform their vital functions properly.
Regular dental exams can help you to identify issues as they are developing, and to nip them in the bud so that you aren’t confronted by significant problems further down the line.
Our complete oral exams can help to ensure that your smile stays bright and healthy, while also safeguarding your overall health and sense of well-being.
