During an oral examination, the dentist will detect normal and abnormal structures of the entire mouth, head and neck. Along with radiographs, an examination detects cavities, abnormalities in existing dental restorations, gum and bone recession and any other findings.
During the exam, the dentist will discuss with the patient their findings and a treatment plan to best treat the patient and their oral health.
