Comprehensive Exams

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), a comprehensive oral exam is an in-depth assessment and recording of an individual’s extraoral, intraoral and soft tissues. The ADA recommends new patients to undergo a comprehensive dental examination on their first visit and every 3 years thereafter.

Meanwhile, they also encourage patients to have a periodic oral exam. This exam is performed on established patients to check if there are any changes to their dental and health status since their last evaluation.

Comprehensive Oral Exam Procedure

The procedure takes an entire appointment and will include the following:

  • Periodontal examination
  • Dental examination
  • Occlusal examination
  • Head and neck cancer assessment
  • TMJ assessment
  • X-rays and other radiographic tests
  • Salivary function examination
  • Esthetic examination

During a comprehensive oral evaluation, we will leave no stone unturned. Dr. Barsky will find out everything about your oral health to ensure that you will be given the best care possible.

Oral examinations will also be required when you are scheduled to undergo the following procedures:
