Comprehensive Dental Exam
The dental examination is a diagnostic evaluation of a patient’s overall oral health and hygiene.
Family Dental Care of Milford provides thorough dental examinations to our patients to help ensure overall oral health and hygiene by way of performing a diagnostic evaluation.
We carefully and gently:
- Check for signs of decay or periodontal disease
- Ask about medications you are taking
- Perform x-rays (when needed)
- Evaluate your bite
- Evaluate your jaw
- Discuss best methods and proper cleaning for you as a unique individual
- Remove stains and debris
- Take a dental impression
The doctor or hygienist may also perform an oral cancer exam which involves feeling around the cheeks, gums, tongue, under the jaw, and the sides of the neck.
Our goal is to take into consideration your unique situation and needs and make the dental examination process comfortable and informative for you and your family.
