Periodic exams are essential to preventing dental disease and quickly addressing any dental issues that arise. The exam Dr. Palmer performs is the third component of your regular visit, along with the cleaning and x-rays.
The purpose of the exam is to view the x-rays and determine if there are any cavities or other tooth-related problems that need to be addressed. Dr. Palmer will also visually inspect all of your teeth as well as different areas of the mouth in order to screen for oral cancer.
The regular exam is a great time to ask Dr. Palmer any questions you may have or bring up any issues you are having with your teeth or mouth.
We also offer exams for emergencies or dental issues that cannot wait until your next cleaning appointment. Simply call our office and explain the problem you are having, and we will do our best to find time for Dr. Palmer to see you. As always, your oral health is our first priority.
