The Importance of your Regular Dental Checkup

Dental Checkups | Strathcona Dental Clinic | General & Family Dentist | South Edmonton

Your Strathcona Dental Clinic dentist will perform a comprehensive exam at your first visit to establish a baseline for your oral health. At your regular check-up/exam, your hygienist and dentist will complete the following to maximize your care:

  • Radiography: X-rays will be taken and examined for diagnostic purposes. Radiographs are critical to detect tooth decay, tumours, cysts, bone loss and show teeth placement and their root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: Examination includes checking all areas of your face and neck,including tongue, throat, tissues, and gums, for any signs of tissue or lymph node changes.
  • Examination of tissues and gums for any signs of tissue changes
  • Periodontal disease evaluation: Your gums and the bone around your teeth will be examined for signs of gum disease.
  • Tooth decay detection: All the surfaces of all your teeth will be examined for tooth decay and cavities.
  • Examination of Existing Dental Restorations: Any previous dental work, procedures,or treatment you have had done will be checked to ensure it remains viable.
