Dr. Riley and Dr. Gabby use dental exams and X-rays to locate minor problems in your mouth before they become more significant. The bigger problems are more expensive to repair and can cause serious oral health conditions in the long run.
When you visit us for a dental exam, we'll look inside your mouth and the adjacent structures, like the tissues of your face and neck. This helps us identify signs of infection or other abnormal bumps and swollen areas.
Any existing restorations you have, such as fillings or crowns, will be checked to ensure they remain intact. If they are cracked or chipped, we may recommend replacing them to prevent decay from forming under the filling or crown.
An oral cancer screening is completed during your routine dental exam. Dr. Riley or Dr. Gabby will check your neck, face, lips, and other oral tissues for signs of oral cancer. We practice caring family dentistry, so we leave no stone unturned to ensure your oral health is at its best.
