While almost everyone has been through a dental exam, it may have been a good while since your last one. So, naturally, you may have a couple of questions.

Those who come to us for the first time in a long time may be a little worried about coming to the dentist and unsure of what to expect. This of course depends on the state of your teeth. However, if you would like to know the ins and outs of a dental exam, make sure to read on!

The Bare Bones of a Dental Examination

After you are in the dentist's chair, we usually begin with a general evaluation of your overall health. This will involve asking questions about your oral hygiene habits and your health.

We will then evaluate your risk of tooth decay, root decay as well as bone and gum disease. We will also check the jaw to see if you have any bite problems and see if you have any need for tooth restoration or replacement.

There will be other questions regarding your dental and overall health and well-being. We will have to see if you need an X-ray, see if there are any stains or deposits on your teeth that need removing or if you may be developing gum disease.

As with a lot of dental examinations, we may also offer a tooth cleaning if you have not had one in a while. Other procedures will generally depend on what the state of your oral hygiene currently is, so there are a lot of differing factors.

If you would like to undergo a dental examination, make sure to give us a call. You can easily book an appointment and ask any questions which we will be happy to answer.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at (516) 962-2292 today.

Why Our Patients Love Us
Read Our Testimonials

"My wife and I lived in New York for a few years before moving to Colorado. When we were there, our one and only dentist was Dr. Fischler at National Dental! I highly recommend his work, and if we're ever back that way, we'll make sure to stop in!"
~ Keith M.

"I have never had an issue with the staff. Everyone here is very friendly, which is extremely helpful when visiting the dentist. It makes for a much less stressful experience!"
~ Jenna P.
"I have not been to the dentist in over 20 years because of an extremely bad experience when I was a child. I HAD to go recently after I cracked a tooth! Dr. Fischler is so nice and works very quickly. He explains everything as he does it, and the entire procedure was 100% pain free. I couldn't believe it!"
~ Natalie D.
