At Mi Smile Family Dental, oral examinations are essential for maintaining health. Our skilled dental team will carefully assess your teeth, gums, tongue, and other oral tissues for any indications of disease such as decay, as well as other concerns during your oral exam. Identifying these issues early can help prevent them from escalating and adversely affecting your oral and overall health.
Regular oral exams also play a vital role in the early detection of oral cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, over 50,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral cancer each year. Early detection is crucial, and our comprehensive examinations can help identify any concerns early.
Oral exams not only help to detect potential oral issues but also offer insights into your overall health. Numerous medical conditions, such as diabetes and immune system disorders, can first show up in your mouth. During your oral exam, we can often spot early signs of these conditions and recommend that you consult your primary care physician or other specialists for further evaluation.
We advise scheduling oral exams every 6 months in conjunction with your routine cleanings. Contact our Houston dental office today to book your appointment!
