After studying your dental health history, our dentist will examine your gums, teeth, and mouth. This procedure is known as a comprehensive exam and is performed to study the state of your dental health and hygiene. An important part of the comprehensive exam is the cleaning. The teeth and mouth are thoroughly cleaned before moving onto the x-rays.
Our dentist will generally look for any sensitivity, decay, and redness around the gums and teeth during the examination, and explain the procedure to you. Even though our dentist will have already studied your medical and dental history from the forms you filled out, you may still be asked questions about your teeth while being examined. This is common if our dentist sees anything unusual or anything not mentioned on the forms.
