Dental Exam

When you first visit the dentist at Cascade Dental Care, Dr. Smith and his team will perform a comprehensive dental exam to determine your overall oral health. The dental exam will include the following:

Diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): To detect tooth decay, tumors, cysts, bone loss, as well as locate tooth and root positions

Oral cancer screening: Check the lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for signs of oral cancer

Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone surrounding the teeth for signs of periodontal disease

Tooth decay Inspection: All tooth surfaces will be evaluated for decay using dental instruments

Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.
