Oral Exams

As a proactive measure, we monitor the health of your teeth and gums through oral examinations at each visit.

About Complete Oral Exams

At Hingham Dentistry, our dentists perform a thorough oral exam during your initial visit. During subsequent check-up visits, your dentist and hygienist will also include the following:

  • Examination of diagnostic X-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss, X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: We examine your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: We check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of tooth decay: We use special dental instruments to check all tooth surfaces for decay.
  • Examination of existing restorations: We examine the condition of existing fillings, crowns, etc.

Please feel free to contact us at our dental office to learn more or to schedule an appointment.
