Why get a Dental Exam?
Regular dental exams allow your dentist to monitor the overall health of your teeth, treat problems and even catch problems before they get worse. Schedule a dental exam with our dental professional.
What Happens During a Dental Exam?
During your exam at Grace Dental your dental professional will be checking for gum disease, tooth decay and oral cancer. They can also address broken and missing teeth, crooked teeth, cosmetics, enamel erosion and problems you may have with your bite. If it has been more than a year since your last dental exam you will receive the necessary X-Rays. Your dental exam is not complete until you receive a professional cleaning to remove plaque and any tartar build-up. At the conclusion of the dental exam your Grace Dental professional will design a treatment plan for you based on what was found during the dental exam.
