Comprehensive Dental Exam

A comprehensive dental exam includes far more than just cleaning your teeth. It involves a complete and thorough patient examination covering everything from pre-existing conditions, gum health, various screenings, and diagnostic exams to guarantee optimal oral health. But not all dentists are as thorough as others.  At The Dental Institute, our comprehensive dental exams include all of the following: Dr. Lanza will discuss your dental and medical history (including current medications), concerns, expectations, and goals. Even if you don’t think a pre-existing condition is related to your oral health, let Dr. Lanza know. Assessment of your current hygiene habits, diet, and risk factors will enable Dr. Lanza to understand your overall dental health.

An extraoral examination of the head and neck and intraoral examination of the oral soft tissues is completed to detect the early symptoms of diseases, such as:

  • TMJ disorder
  • Oral cancer
  • Gum disease
  • Detecting tooth decay
  • Evaluating existing dental treatment
  • Bite evaluation
  • Teeth cleaning and stain removal

Your comprehensive dental exam includes digital x-rays for diagnostic purposes. Optional diagnostic procedures such as radiographs or other images will be discussed with you depending on your specific needs.
