One of the best ways to keep your smile in great shape and avoid dental emergencies and other issues that can become both serious and costly is with a comprehensive oral examination. Also known as a dental checkup, a comprehensive oral examination is the process used by your dentist to carefully review the health of your mouth. During these exams, your dentist thoroughly checks your entire mouth for any possible signs of problems and helps you proactively take care of them.
It is recommended that you receive a comprehensive oral examination during your first visit to a dentist and every 6-months or so. Your dental checkup is a great time to ask your dentist about any questions you may have about your oral health and how to keep your smile as healthy as possible between visits. If it’s been a while since your last comprehensive oral exam, schedule one with our team of experienced dentists today.
