A dental exam involves a thorough assessment conducted by our dentists, and includes a meticulous evaluation of your teeth and underlying oral structures to detect potential dental ailments or conditions. Dental X-rays might be employed to further scrutinize your teeth and supporting structures, identifying tooth decay and other potential complications.

Additionally, we may offer suggestions to enhance your at-home oral hygiene practices.
