Ensuring Long-Term Oral Health with Comprehensive Dental Exams in Amarillo

Waiting to go to the dentist until you are having symptoms can lead to more serious oral conditions. It is far more time, cost, and health-conscious to adopt preventative measures instead of waiting until there is a problem.

Frequently Asked Questions About Comprehensive Dental Exams (FAQ)

Why Do I Need A Comprehensive Dental Exam?

Preventative care includes comprehensive dental exams. At Texas Implant and Dental Center, exams are completed thoroughly, so you can rest assured knowing that we check everything from the tissue to the teeth. We even check the temporomandibular joint for any tightness or abnormal functionality. Problems in any of these areas can compromise your dental health, and we want to make sure your mouth stays healthy and free of painful conditions.

What Do Comprehensive Dental Exams Consist Of?

Digital X-rays

One of the most important elements of a dental exam is an x-ray. Texas Implant and Dental Center will take digital x-rays of both arches. We use only the best and most modern x-ray technology, so we do not miss a thing. 

Because we can analyze your x-rays with the assistance of a computer, the images are better than ever, and we can pick up difficult-to-diagnose dental-health issues. The x-rays and the physical examinations of the mouth help us find issues that affect all mouth areas, such as oral cancer. Many patients are relieved to know that they are under less radiation exposure when receiving digital x-rays at our office.

Digital Photographs

We can do a lot with our digital x-rays, including checking structure. While the x-rays help our dentists to understand your oral health, they are difficult for our patients to understand. That is why we offer digital dental photographs. These photos aid our patients in seeing any issues and help our dentists explain them to you to understand your problems and your treatment options.

Gum Exams and Charting

An essential aspect of oral health is dependent on your gums. Gums are an excellent indicator of your oral health, so every exam includes a periodontal checkup. We also chart your gums; This entails taking measurements of your gum pockets to see if they are large enough to cause concern or growing due to a condition like gingivitis.

TMJ and Bite Analysis

Your lower jaw – also referred to as your mandible – attaches to the skull by the two temporomandibular joints on either side of your face. Improper functioning of these joints can lead to dental issues from the pain, grinding, locking, and clenching. If you are experiencing any of those symptoms or popping sounds in the joint, talk to your Texas Implant and Dental Center dentist about it. You may need a mouth guard to keep your teeth safe from grinding and clenching or a bite adjustment to reduce pain and friction.

Tooth Exams

Of course, Texas Implant and Dental Center examinations include analysis of all of your teeth. One of our dentists will carefully look at each tooth and warn you of areas of concern or recommend treatments for existing issues. We use the most modern techniques for cavity detection, enabling us to potentially stop the problem before it requires a filling or a root canal. Moreover, even if you cannot prevent the damage, catching it early means a smaller filling and a higher probability of keeping the tooth in the long term.
