Dental Examination

Dental Examination

Routine dental examinations play a critical role in detecting dental conditions and maintaining oral health. They serve as a preventative measure, and will save patients from developing serious complications in the long run.

General dental examinations consist of:

  • Digital X-rays to view below the surface of teeth and gums
  • Comprehensive evaluation of oral health
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Assessment of teeth, gums, jaw, bite
  • Looking for health-related conditions

Dental Cleaning

Why is routine dental cleaning important?

General dental cleanings at least every 6 months are recommended by the American Dental Association, for children and adults. Teeth cleanings in the dental office consist of far more than just your normal brushing and flossing. Because plaque builds up and hardens into tartar over time, more advanced tools are needed to remove the unwanted buildup around your teeth. Dental cleanings also involve improving gum care, polishing of your teeth, flossing, and education about proper oral hygiene. Teeth cleanings help proactively prevent oral problems like tooth decay and gum disease before they can occur.

Our dentist at Pathway Dental will inform you of how often to come in for a dental examination and cleaning based on your oral health and any existing conditions.
