Dental Exams in Springfield VA
For your first visit to Sonrisas and Smiles Dental Care, we will perform a detailed dental exam. This gives us an overview of your current oral health, and allows us to create a dental plan specifically for you. This includes:
- X-rays: We use X-rays to check for problems that are “underneath the surface”, such as decay, tumors, bone loss, and cysts.
- Tooth decay: We will examine the surface of your teeth for decay.
- Check any prior dental restorations: We’ll check on the condition of existing fillings, crowns, veneers, etc.
- Oral cancer screening: We will do a thorough examination of your tongue, throat, lips, and gums to look for symptoms/signs of oral cancer.
