What is a Dental Exam or Dental Checkup?

Our professional dental exams allow dentists to diagnose and treat oral health issues. Even if you aren’t experiencing symptoms or pain, it’s wise to receive regular dental exams.

During your dental exam or checkup, your dentist will evaluate your teeth and gums, looking for issues with your existing fillings and crowns or any signs of decay or periodontal disease. They will also ensure there’s no swelling in your neck and face.

Often, catching potential dental issues early will make them less involved and costly to treat. Preventive dentistry offers a way to keep up with your oral hygiene so you can intervene sooner rather than later.

At Dental Choice, we provide exams and checkups in Calgary, Alberta, and we strive to make it easier for you to maintain your oral well-being.


What Are the Types of Dental Exams in Calgary?

Dental Choice offers an array of comprehensive oral exams in Calgary:

All new patients will undergo a full exam so dentists can gain a baseline of the patient’s oral health. Your dentist will note missing teeth, fillings or dental crowns. They will also evaluate whether you have had dental work — like root canals — in the past. They will check the current condition of your teeth, roots and bone levels. If there are any issues, they will either recommend treatment options or refer you to a dental specialist.

Schedule an Exam

It’s recommended that you schedule a recall dental exam or annual checkup, to help maintain your oral health. At this appointment, your dentist will take X-rays to assess the current condition of your teeth, gums and bone. The dentist will also look for signs of decay, changes in your bite and issues with the integrity of your teeth. Annual checkups help dentists and hygienists familiarize themselves with your priorities, helping you receive more customized service.

Schedule an Exam

If you’re experiencing a specific oral health issue, Dental Choice provides emergency dental exams in Calgary. We’ll take X-rays to get a more in-depth look at what’s going on in your mouth. We’ll aim to confirm the problem and provide you with treatment options to alleviate the pain.
