Oral exams are a fundamental aspect of preventive dentistry, providing a comprehensive assessment of your oral health. Regular oral examinations by Dr. Farid Noie serve as proactive measures to detect issues early and maintain optimal dental wellbeing.
Importance of Oral Exams
Oral exams are key to identifying dental problems before they escalate. Our dentist and team can detect signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer and other concerns during these routine checkups. Early detection often leads to less invasive and more effective treatments.
Components of Oral Exams
- Visual Inspection: We visually examine teeth, gums, the tongue and surrounding tissues for abnormalities, such as cavities, plaque buildup and signs of inflammation.
- X-ray Imaging: Dental X-rays provide a deeper look at hidden issues, including tooth decay between teeth and beneath the gumline.
- Periodontal Assessment: Evaluating gum health helps identify signs of gum disease and determine appropriate preventive measures.
- Oral Cancer Screening: We check for unusual growths or lesions that could indicate oral cancer, facilitating early diagnosis and treatment.
Personalized Treatment Plans
Based on exam findings, we create a personalized treatment plan addressing your specific needs. This may involve recommendations for oral hygiene improvements, dental cleanings, fillings or more advanced interventions.
Frequency of Oral Exams
Regular oral exams are typically recommended every six months, although patients with specific dental conditions or risk factors might need more frequent visits.
