Comprehensive Exams

The best way to ensure your smile stays healthy and beautiful is to catch potential health issues as soon as possible. Our comprehensive dental exams are designed to do exactly that. Our expert team will inspect your full mouth to detect early signs of trouble. We can catch issues like cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer fast to protect your smile from long-term damage. 


Different Types Of Cleaning

A basic or regular cleaning involves cleaning above the gums. A deep cleaning, on the other hand, involves cleaning under and above the gums. You can think of it like thorough cleaning under a sofa, which doesn't occur every time you vacuum but perhaps every quarter, every six months, or every year.

Advanced Diagnostic X-Rays

We use advanced diagnostic imaging and x-rays to get the complete picture of your oral health. With our tools, we can find hidden oral health issues such as impacted teeth, bone loss, and decay. If there is anything negatively impacting your oral health, we will find it and take care of it so you can keep smiling! 


Thorough Teeth Cleanings

To keep your teeth looking and feeling great, we provide thorough cleanings to get rid of plaque and tartar buildup in hard-to-reach areas. This is a simple and effective way to lower your risk of developing gum disease and tooth decay. All you have to do is relax, and our team will take care of your smile!

The Importance of Dental Exams

Dental exams are essential because they give us a very good perspective of what's going on in your mouth. We can’t see most of the problems in the mouth, and you don't feel it unless it has progressed very far.

What is Included in a Dental Exam

A dental exam involves full-mouth x-rays, gum measurements, photos of the issue, such as broken teeth or cavities, and the doctor's diagnosis. We also do a cancer screening during a comprehensive dental exam. Most general health issues manifest very dominantly on oral pictures. There are typically clear signs of the problem in the mouth that can be detected by your dentist.

What is a Dentist Looking For During a Dental Exam?

We will be looking for abnormalities, inflammation, swelling, and anything else that deviates from normal.

What Recommendations Might My Dentist Make?

We will sometimes refer you to an oral surgeon, a root canal specialist, or a gum specialist. We also recommend a general teeth cleaning.

How Long Does a Dental Exam Take?

A dental exam typically takes around 45 to 50 minutes, depending on the circumstances. Some people may have more problems, which would take longer to address.

Are Dental Exams Painful?

A dental exam will not necessarily be painful, unless the patient is already in pain.

Schedule an Appointment

You can call us at (510) 969-8510, or book an appointment online on our website.

First, an exam is conducted to determine the type of cleaning required. If a deep cleaning is needed, the patient is numbed before the procedure begins.

No, it's not painful. There's no inflammation or any problem with the gums, but the patient is numbed for comfort. Some sensitivity may occur as the teeth adjust to their new clean environment, but this subsides within a few hours or a day.

After tartar removal, the gums will feel relaxed and appear healthier. However, more cavities may be exposed as they were previously covered with plaque or tartar.

The frequency of cleaning depends on your dentist's advice. It's crucial to maintain regular cleaning with your dental hygienist or dentist - every three, four, six months, or as suggested.

Dental cleaning is not just about maintaining oral health, but also overall body health. Our mouth is the primary entrance to our body, and maintaining it is crucial for long-term health.
