Dentistry Services by Boyd and Messerly DDS
Comprehensive Exam

The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist at least twice a year.  Regular exams are important to assess possible problems such as gum disease, oral cancer, and cavity development.   

Your comprehensive dental exam will include:

• 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

   Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral

• Gum disease evaluation

   Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.

• Examination of tooth decay

   All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.

• Examination of existing restorations

   Check current fillings, crowns, etc.

Catching problems early prevents bigger problems from developing which usually ends of saving you both time and money.
