What is a Dental Exam?

Dr. Susman recommends getting at least two dental exams each year. These appointments allow him to examine your teeth, gums, and bite for any potential problems, and unlike other dental offices, he’ll actually perform your cleaning himself while wearing 3.5x loups. These enable him to magnify what he’s looking at so he can remove more plaque and tartar from the teeth that most hygienists miss, lowering your cavity risk.

What Can I Expect During a Dental Exam?

Yearly exams at our Tulsa, OK practice begin with a discussion about your health record. A member of our team can also talk with you about any oral issues or aesthetic smile desires you have to learn more about your overall dental health. At specific routine check-ins, a set of computerized x-rays may be ordered to provide Dr. Susman additional information regarding the wellness of your teeth and jawbone. He can then perform a screening for oral cancer, check the alignment of your bite and temporomandibular joints, and look at your teeth for cracks, as well as the comfort of any dental restorations. A gum screening will also be conducted to find any areas of periodontal disease.

Dental Exam FAQ

How often should I receive a dental exam?
Typically, it is recommended to receive dental exams about two times per year. Checkups and cleanings can be performed within the same visit to Smile Remodels & Digital Dentistry. If you have any issues outside of your regularly scheduled checkups, you should contact our facility for immediate attention.

What should I do if an issue is discovered during my dental exam?
When a dental concern is detected during your checkup, Dr. Susman will schedule an appropriate treatment plan. You will need to attend a follow-up treatment to effectively take care of the issue. We can also provide additional care instructions on the best ways to care for and prevent the problem.

Can a dental cleaning prevent future dental issues?
A dental cleaning removes tartar and plaque from the teeth. This can be effective in helping to prevent tooth decay and cavities from developing. Additionally, fluoride treatments can be provided for patients who experience regular cavities. These treatments can be performed in the same appointment as your exam.
