The primary purpose of a routine dental exam is Diagnostics – assessing the situation at hand and developing an effective plan of action. Routine Dental Exams play a crucial part of preventive dental care, and are necessary to maintaining your overall health and well-being. Routine Dental Exams and regular check-ups allow Dr. Bo and his staff to detect any problem early on– when it’s most treatable.
During your routine dental exam, you can expect:
Evaluation of overall oral health and oral hygiene
Evaluation of risk for tooth decay, root decay, gum disease, bone disease, or oral cancer
Evaluation of need for tooth replacement or restoration
Inspection of your bite and jaw
Taking digital dental X-rays, if required
