Comprehensive Exams and Screenings for Better Oral Health

Spot problems before they start with a comprehensive exam


DentistRegular dental exams are an important part of preventive health care.

During a dental exam, the dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth and check for cavities and gum disease. The dentist or hygienist will also evaluate your risk of developing other oral health problems, as well as check your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities. A dental exam will also include dental X-rays or other diagnostic procedures.

During a dental exam, the dentist or hygienist will likely discuss your diet and oral hygiene habits and demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques. Other topics for discussion may include lifestyle factors that can affect oral health and possible cosmetic improvements to your teeth.

In a comprehensive exam, you can expect us to:

  • Evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene
  • Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, root decay and gum or bone disease
  • Evaluate your need for tooth restoration or tooth replacement
  • Check your bite and jaw for problems
  • Demonstrate proper cleaning techniques for your teeth or dentures
  • Check for Gum recession, periodontal disease, bone levels, abnormal tissue lesions and TMJ disorders

    Kiana is doing wonderfully well. It really impressed me when she exited the office. She was so happy. She told me it didn't hurt. She was very please with the outcome and so was I. Thanks Dr. Patel, and thanks to all that work with you for making this day a wonderful experience for her.

    VSP has been great in resolving all of my dental problems, and I can confidently say that I feel much better about my smile than when I first walked into their office about a year ago. I cannot say enough about the staff at VSP either. They are simply wonderful.
