How Your Exams and X-Rays are Done
When you're called back to the examination room, Dr. Tulus will take a look at your mouth using state-of-the-art dental equipment and tools. This includes mouth mirrors, high intensity lights, and other common pieces. We'll examine any cracked, damaged, and decayed teeth, as well as other important items we review during your routine visits:
• Medical History: We'll ask about any previous dental issues you've experienced, as well as your general medical history of conditions or illnesses.
• Examination of Tooth Decay: If you are suffering from cavities or something more severe, we want to address this right away.
• Oral Cancer Screening: Your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums will be checked for any signs of oral cancer.
• Examination of Existing Restorations: Any current fillings, crowns, and other restorations you have will be checked to make sure everything is in good order.
