Over time, plaque and calculus build up on our teeth and gums, which can lead to a number of dental problems such as gingivitis, tooth decay, bad breath, and more. Comprehensive exams are needed to diagnose the causes of such dental problems and treatment plan the restoration of the mouth and appropriate cleanings.
At Southern Roots Dental, one of our dentists will perform an examination of your teeth and mouth, which may include dental x-rays and intra-oral images. These x-rays can help to detect cavities, tartar build up under the gums, recession of the bone, teeth deterioration due to an abnormal bite or TMJ, and more. We will also complete an examination of your head and neck to check for any abnormalities, as well as check for oral cancer.
