A comprehensive oral examination is the most important dental procedure and the starting point for a variety of specialized dental services that West Willow Family Dental offers. Many patients only require their semi-annual exam and cleaning. For those patients who haven’t been to the dentist in a while, or if ever, we examine every facet that contributes to your overall health including:
- Condition and function of each tooth including proper alignment, excessive wear and presence of missing teeth.
- Condition of the existing fillings, crowns, implants and bridges
- Gum health, including recession and sensitivity, mobility of teeth, general appearance of the tissue
- Presence of decay
- Full oral cancer screening
- Cosmetic appearance
