Oral Examinations

Regularly schedule oral exams - ideally happening twice each year - give your dentist the chance to identify oral health issues as they arise and create plans to treat them accordingly.

During your oral exam at these appointments, Dr. Mahler will take a close look at the health of your gums, teeth, jaw and bite. These exams may also include dental X-rays, oral cancer screenings and other diagnostic procedures as required.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer is capable of affecting any part of your mouth or the tissues that surround it. Because of this, we will be running screening tests and examinations as part of your oral checkup.

During your examination, Dr. Mahler will check your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat and gums for signs of any oral cancer.

Oral Health Care at Home

To help keep your smile healthy between dental appointments with our team, make sure that you brush your teeth twice each day for at least two minutes each time and floss your teeth at least once each day.

Hygiene Cleaning

Either before or after your exam, your dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and your gums to treat and prevent disease.

To start, they will use a scaler to remove tartar and plaque build-up. Next, they will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any leftover stains or plaque, followed by thorough flossing of your teeth and your gums.

Fluoride Treatment

If your child is at a higher risk of tooth decay, your dentist may also recommend a fluoride treatment. 

Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that can help to rebuild the structures of your tooth's enamel to help prevent or even reverse the effects of tooth decay.
