ROUTINE EXAMS

We want to make your visit here at Hanover Road Dental Health a spectacular one! During your routine exam you can expect:

  • Evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene

  • Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, root decay, and gum or bone disease

  • Evaluate your need for tooth restoration or tooth replacement

  • Check your bite and jaw for problems

  • Remove any stains or deposits on your teeth

  • Demonstrate proper cleaning techniques for your teeth or dentures

  • Assess your need for fluoride

  • Take dental X-rays or, if necessary, do other diagnostic procedures

During a dental exam, your dentist or hygienist will also ask about any health problems you have or medications you're taking and discuss how they might affect your oral health. If you have diabetes, for example, you're at increased risk of gum disease. Any medication that contributes to dry mouth can increase your risk of tooth decay. If arthritis interferes with your ability to effectively brush your teeth, your dentist or hygienist might show you how to insert the handle of your toothbrush into a rubber ball for easier use — or recommend a waterpik or an electric toothbrush.
