Your dental exam is broken down into eight categories:
1 Pre-clinical interview: so that you can tell us if you have any concerns.
2 Muscle evaluation: so that we can evaluate your jaw muscles and joints and relate any findings to what we find in the mouth.
3 Joint evaluation: to check jaw joint health.
4 Soft tissue evaluation: to see if the soft lining of your mouth is healthy.
5 Radiographic exam: to check bone levels around teeth and to see if there is any decay between your teeth.
6 Existing Teeth and Conditions: to check existing fillings and see if there is any decay.
7 Occlusal examination: to check how your teeth bite together.
8 Periodontal examination: to check the seal between your teeth and gums.
