Exams and X-Rays in Dumfries and Woodbridge, Virginia

Routine dental exams are important for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Additionally, they can help to avoid the costs associated with large treatment plans later on. The Academy of General Dentistry recommends twice yearly checkups for people of all ages. At this frequency, most problems can be caught while they remain in an early stage.

How it's done

Your Dumfries and Woodbridge, Virginia dentist first examines your mouth visually. They will look for a variety of potential issues including:

  • Medical history: The dentist will assess how any new medical conditions or illnesses may affect your dental health.
  • Examination of tooth decay: Your mouth will be checked for cracked or decayed teeth.
  • Oral cancer screening: The face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums will be checked for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: Your gums and bone around the teeth will be checked for any evidence of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of existing restorations: Current fillings, crowns, and other restorations are made sure to be in good order.

Additionally, your Dumfries and Woodbridge dentist may take diagnostic X-rays to reveal any other hidden problems, especially in the areas below the gums. Bitewing X-rays are typically taken every 12 months and a panoramic X-ray, which revolves around the head, may be recommended every 3-5 years.
