Dental Exams Ensure a Healthy Smile
Dental exams are an essential step of our holistic approach to your oral health. During the exam, our dentists will inspect your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth, including your gums, tongue, and cheeks. Not only are we looking for common signs of oral diseases, such as gingivitis, but also some forms of oral cancer. When caught early, the symptoms of gingivitis can be reversed. However, if it has progressed to peritonitis, we can only treat the symptoms, which is why it's so important to visit your dentist every six months.
At Portage Northern Dental, we’re happy to welcome new and returning patients. As a returning patient, you can expect the best treatment and care. We customize our plans to meet your dental needs. If you're a new patient, we'll take the time to learn about your oral health history. We may take some digital X-rays for a baseline of your oral health. We're here to ensure you receive the right treatment for a beautiful and healthy smile.
