Along with teeth cleaning and polishing, an oral exam is a part of a normal, preventative dental visit to Vaughan Family Dentistry. Oral exams include a visual inspection of your teeth and gums. Your general dental professional may also take x-rays to see if there are any cavities or dental issues that aren’t visible during the examination of your mouth.
An oral exam is a painless dentistry procedure, and it is recommended that you have one every three to six months. That way, Dr. Vaughan can detect any beginning tooth issue before it becomes a problem.
