Dental Examinations

Dr. Pak will perform your dental exam. Dental examinations are part of your cleaning. The exam will vary depending on your individual dental needs. For instance, Dr. Pak may spend more time looking for signs of gum disease in adults, and tooth decay in children. During this exam, he will look for a variety of issues as a way to monitor your dental health.

What to expect during a dental exam.

Dr. Pak will conduct a visual exam. He will not only check dental problems that you are aware of, but he also determine your risk for future dental issues. This is the time that Dr. Pak will review your dental x-rays helping to note or diagnose dental problems.

Oral Cancer Screening

Included in your exam is an oral cancer screening. Dr. Pak will look for abnormalities in the tissues of your mouth including sores or lumps. He may also examine the areas surrounding your jaw to check for symptoms of oral cancer.
