Complete Oral Exams

At Nashua Dental Group, we prioritize education and prevention when it comes to helping you maintain your oral health. That’s why your dentist will perform a complete and thorough oral exam during your initial visit so that, together, you can take steps toward your achieving optimal oral health. During subsequent visits, your dentist and hygienist will perform various screenings and exams to check for new problems and help you maintain your best smile! Some of these exams include:

Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): We will take x-rays of your mouth and jaw to determine whether there are signs of tumors, bone loss, or problems with teeth or roots. X-rays also help us see whether you’re at risk of crowding or impacting of teeth.

Oral cancer screening: We carefully examine your face, neck, mouth, and throat, including the gums and tissues, for any early signs of oral cancer.

Gum disease evaluation: We check the gums and surrounding bones for any signs of gingivitis or more advanced periodontal disease.

Examination of tooth decay: Using dental instruments, we perform a complete check of the surfaces of your teeth, as well as the areas where they touch each other, to determine whether there is any decay or potential for decay.

Examination of existing restorations: We’ll take a look at any existing fillings, crowns, implants, or dentures to make sure everything is in good condition and working properly.

By periodically performing oral exams, we’re able to catch any potential diseases or problems with your teeth, gums, or restorations before they become troublesome. That way, you can spend less time at the dentist’s office and more time showing off your beautiful smile! If you have questions, or would like to schedule a complete oral exam, please contact us at our Nashua, NH office.
