Great oral care starts with a comprehensive dental exam. Lanphier Family Dental recommends dental exams, including cancer screenings, every year. Based on your annual dental exam, we’ll create a customized dental treatment plan to help ensure that you have a healthy mouth and teeth for a lifetime!

Following is what we cover in your dental exam: 

  • A review of your medical history. We’ll ask you about any changes in your health and wellness since your last exam
  • An oral exam, including a visual gum tissue check and oral cancer scan
  • A periodontal health check-up where we examine your jawbone levels and any pockets forming between teeth and gums
  • X-rays are taken to diagnose disease that is not detectable through a clinical exam.  X-rays can diagnose multiple areas; caries in-between teeth, the health of the nerve, anomalies in the root, and the health of the bone
  • Recommendations about your self dental care

If we find that you need dental treatment, we’ll happily explain all of the options available to you.
