What Are Dental Exams?

Regular dental exams are an important step when it comes to identifying developing problems and preserving the health of your smile. A thorough oral exam at Dr. Todd K. Baum, DDS, PC allows our team to detect tooth decay, gum disease, cancer of oral tissues, and other different issues that may be affecting your dental and overall health. Generally performed at biannual dental cleaning appointments, comprehensive exams let Dr. Todd K. Baum study the teeth, gum tissues, bite position, jaw joints, and additional oral features and will often make way for the immediate detection and care of dental conditions. If you're due for treatment and want to keep up with the health and appearance of your teeth, schedule an annual dental exam at our Grand Ledge, MI practice today.

What Can I Expect At My Oral Exam?

Dental exams at our Grand Ledge, MI office begin with a short review of your health record and a discussion about any complaints or concerns you have about your teeth. Depending on how recently you had your last exam, we may perform a series of x-rays to give Dr. Baum a more comprehensive look at your tooth and jawbone health. He may then screen for oral cancer, check the evenness of your bite and jaws, monitor your teeth for cracks, and make sure any restorations you have are still functional. A gum exam may also be conducted to detect potential indications of periodontal disease.
