Oral Exams and New Patient Exams in Red Deer
Don’t worry, it’s nothing like high school exams! Oral exams allow your dentist to assess your general oral health. This helps your dentist to diagnose any issues and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Your first dental exam will likely include a medical questionnaire and a series of diagnostic techniques. Regular dental exams are key to maintaining good oral health. These routine examinations also help catch any issues creating the best possible treatment outcomes.
The first time you visit Village Mall Dental, your dentist will perform a new patient exam. This is to assess your oral and overall health and will help your dentist to best meet your specific needs. You can expect to be asked for a full medical history, including previous dental care. Comprehensive x-rays will likely be taken and a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw will be performed. Your dentist will then discuss the findings of the exam with you, and talk about different treatment options.
Regular exams are not usually as extensive as your first visit but are still essential. It’s recommended to have a regular dental exam at least once a year. This is because a lot of dentistry is about prevention or early diagnosis. Your teeth may look and feel fine, but a dental exam may show something you wouldn’t otherwise be aware of. If there are any concerns, prompt treatment can often prevent further damage and may provide better treatment options.
