The dental exam includes an oral cancer screening, checking for broken or decayed teeth, a gingival evaluation, and a comprehensive dental plan, explaining all of your dental needs.
Dental x-rays are an important tool used by the dentist to complete the diagnosis of cavities or gum disease. The dentist will determine which type of x-rays you will need at your appointment.
