What you can expect

JDuring a routine dental exam, the dentist will:

  • Evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene

  • Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, root decay, and gum or bone disease

  • Evaluate your need for tooth restoration or replacement

  • Check your bite and jaw for problems

  • Remove stains or deposits on your teeth

  • Demonstrate proper cleaning techniques for your teeth or dentures

  • Assess your need for fluoride

  • Possibly take dental X-rays or, if necessary, do other diagnostic procedures

During a dental exam, your dentist will also ask about your health problems or medications you take and discuss how they might affect your oral health. If you have diabetes, for example, you're at increased risk of gum disease.

If you have prosthetic replacements — such as dentures or bridges — your dentist or hygienist will examine how well they fit and discuss the need for adjustments.

Dental exams might also include counseling about diet, use of tobacco products and other lifestyle factors that can affect oral health.
