Comprehensive Dental Examination

Wake Dental Care offers a comprehensive Cary dental exam that is performed by one of our dentists at your initial dental visit to our Cary family dentistry office.  At regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist may include one or more of the following based on your individual need:

Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs):

Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.  X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.

Oral cancer screening:

Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

Gum disease evaluation:

Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.

Examination of tooth decay:

All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.

Examination of existing restorations:

Wake Dental Care will check current fillings, crowns, etc. whether we put them in or not.
