Dental examinations play an important role in maintaining your oral health because they help identify potential problems before they develop into major issues. Identifying problems early allows the Blue Wolf Dental team to preserve more tooth structure, perform less invasive treatment, less costly procedures, and identify future complications. At Blue Wolf Dental, we believe in proactively addressing dental issues rather than waiting on dental pain to occur. By doing this, we are able to maintain more of the patient’s natural teeth and avoid more extensive dental work in the future.
Not only do dental examinations involve carefully inspecting the teeth, they also allow us to see any existing abnormalities in the head and neck region including the lips, tongue, throat and gums. These abnormalities could include identification of lesions, cysts, tumors, cancerous lesions, or pre-cancerous lesions. It is important to identify these lesions early in order to treat them least invasively and most effectively. Digital radiographs will often be taken the day of your appointment to aid in diagnosis of any potential dental problems.
