How dental exams and cleanings help

Oral exams, checkups and cleanings are the first steps towards overall dental health and hygiene.

When you go for a routine dental examination, your dentist can help detect and prevent any oral health issues and disease—before they become an issue.

If it’s your first visit to our clinic, your dentist will start by asking you about your medical history.

Your medical & dental history

Your medical history lets your dentist know of factors, such as medications you take or previous injuries that may affect your oral health. It also helps to determine how often you should have a dental checkup and cleaning.

How often you go for an examination depends on your oral health and hygiene. Our goal is to catch and prevent issues as early as possible.

Fact: The Canadian Dental Association (CDA) recommends a dental exam for most people every six months.

What your dentist looks for

Your dentist will conduct a visual exam during your visit, looking for early signs of cavities and for damaged, missing or decayed teeth. But they’ll also look for:

Early signs of disease

  • inflammation of the gums (gum disease)
  • early signs of mouth or throat cancer

Clenching and grinding

Catching signs of this during your appointment means it can be treated early.

If you clench or grind your teeth, your dentist can prevent it from causing potential headaches or a sore jaw to loss of hearing and teeth.

Structure and function

Your dentist will examine:

  • function of your temporomandibular joint, which joins the jaw to skull
  • general condition of the bones in your face and jaw
  • position of your teeth (e.g. spacing, bite)

Your neck

Your dentist will examine your neck, feeling the glands and lymph nodes for signs of inflammation, which can point to a cause or condition elsewhere in the body.

X-rays

Your dentist may also take dental X-rays. These images can reveal:

  • cavities under existing fillings
  • fractures
  • impacted wisdom teeth
  • decay under your gum line
  • bone-loss

The dental treatment plan

Your dentist will share a treatment plan with you if a problem is spotted.

This plan gives you options for further care and prevention of worsening symptoms and complications.

You should also ask your dentist any question you may have, especially if you have questions about the exam, diagnosis or treatments. You’ll get an answer.
