Dental Check Ups
During a check up (recall appointment), the patient has a complete intra and extra oral exam that also encompasses an Oral Cancer Screen. This allows the Dentist to assess for any changes or areas of risk. The Dentist will then check all the teeth for any cavities or problems and all soft tissues are also checked for changes. The dentist uses tools such as Radiographs and Mirror and Explorer to assess for Cavities (decay). This visit also provides time for the patient to address any concerns that they have with the Dentist, such as pain, oral changes or aesthetic issues. The Dentist would either address the issues at this time or have the patient return for a Consult appointment.
