Why Are Oral Exams Important?

An oral exam can help detect gum disease and oral cancer, and diagnose the need for fillings, and other treatments. To be most effective, though, an oral exam typically needs the additional information supplied by x-rays, which we take as part of your initial exam and update as needed at check and clean appointments.beautiful smile, cosmetic dentist Perth, smile makeover

If this is your first visit to our office, we will collect some information on your health, have a look around inside your mouth, as well as take complete x-rays and then set you up for a hygiene appointment with one of our dental therapists.

Just like a regular physical exam, a regular oral exam helps keep your entire body healthy and happy. It helps you to maximize good oral hygiene and minimize future dental problems. Regular exams also identify any existing dental issues and diseases early on, preventing bigger problems down the line.beautiful smile, cosmetic dentist Perth, smile makeover, beautiful teeth

Those bigger problems—infections and gum disease—don’t just impact your mouth. Your body is the sum of its parts, and disease in one area typically affects other organs and/or systems. Studies have linked gum disease with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and more.
