What to Expect
The dental examination seeks to evaluate the overall health of the patient’s teeth, gums, bones, and jaw. During the examination, the dentist will look at the patient’s mouth as well and take X-rays to get a more in-depth understanding of their oral care needs. Through physical exams and X-rays, the dentist will be able to assess and diagnose any cavities, chips, disease, and decay in the mouth. Patients will also receive a teeth cleaning following their examination. The dentist will discuss any issues or concerns regarding their exam as well as offer recommendations for care options.
Dentists highly recommends that patients receive a dental examination and check-up at least once a year, in addition to cleanings being received every six months. This ensures optimal dental health for each patient.
The cost for an annual dental examination varies among practices, but it averages between $100 – $300. The front office will consult with the patient’s insurance companies prior to their visit, since most companies cover this cost up to 100%. Patients paying out of pocket may discuss payment options during their consultation.
