Dental Exams

Dental issues, when left unchecked, can have a ripple effect on your smile. From toothaches to gum disease, you shouldn’t underestimate these problems. Fortunately, dental exams can be your first line of defense in maintaining a healthy mouth.

At Peerzada Smiles, we provide comprehensive dental exams to keep your teeth looking their best while safeguarding your oral health.

What is a Dental Exam?

A dental exam is an assessment of your teeth and gums, where one of our dentists will thoroughly examine your oral cavity to identify any potential issues or concerns. Here's what happens:

  • Visual Inspection: The dental professional will inspect your mouth, gums, tongue, and throat to check for any abnormalities or symptoms of oral diseases, such as cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer.
  • Teeth Examination: Afterward, they will look at each tooth individually to assess their condition, including signs of decay, cracks, or damage.
  • Gum Health Evaluation: The dentist will also check for signs of inflammation, bleeding, or gum disease.
  • X-Rays (if necessary): Depending on your dental history and specific concerns, we may need to take X-rays to get a more in-depth look at your teeth and jawbone.
  • Cleaning: In most cases, an exam includes a professional dental cleaning, which involves removing plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth to prevent dental problems.

How Often Should You Have a Dental Exam?

The recommended frequency for dental exams is once every six months. However, patient needs may vary based on your oral health status and any ongoing issues or treatments.

Our dentists at Peerzada Smiles will let you know the most suitable schedule for your specific situation.

Is a Dental Exam Painful?

Dental exams themselves are generally not painful. However, if you have specific oral health issues, you may experience some discomfort or sensitivity during the examination. For instance, if there is inflammation or infection in your mouth, certain areas may be more sensitive when probed.

Please communicate any concerns or pain to your dentist, as they can take steps to make you more comfortable during the exam.
