What Does A Dental Exam Do?

There are a number of things that an experienced dentist near you will look at when you book a general dental exam with them. Their goal is to make sure your teeth and gums are as healthy as possible to help with preventative treatments for your mouth to keep larger issues from occurring. Here at Making You Smile Cosmetic Dental Studio, we look for all of the following.

Tooth Decay and Cavities

These are areas of the teeth that have lost calcification, which is the loss of hard tooth structure because of bacterial attack. During the dental exam, the dentist will check to see if the color of the tooth has changed. Upon further examination with x-rays, the doctor can identify the severity of the cavities. With this knowledge of your teeth, he can propose measures to restore the lost tooth structure with a filling, crown, or some other dental treatment.

Gingivitis and Recession

Taking care of your gums is just as important as taking care of your teeth. Inflammation of the gums manifests itself with bleeding gums which could mean more serious gum disease. Gum recessions are areas where the gums have pulled away from the teeth. This can be very painful, and leave your exposed teeth more prone to cavities. A gum exam will allow us to identify the cause of the problem and propose a dental treatment to restore healthy, pinkish, non-bleeding gums such as the use of chlorhexidine mouthwash.

Periodontitis (Supporting Bones)

The teeth are supported in your jawbones by the gums and the underlying bone. To keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime, the bone structure needs to stay healthy. A periodontal exam with the aid of dental x-rays will allow us to assess the condition of the supporting bone so we can detect a problem early on and propose measures to restore and maintain health.

Oral Exam

During the exam, we will look around your mouth to check for any suspicious changes in the tissues of your cheeks, lips, tongue, the roof of your mouth, and below your tongue. We will investigate any change to rule out any disease or a possible cancerous change. This is an important preventative step against cancer of the mouth or tongue.

Is a Dental Examination Right for You?

Yes, a dental examination is right for you! In fact, it is recommended that you visit the dentist at least twice a year to avoid serious oral health issues. Most dental insurance plans cover these visits as well. Take advantage of this and save your smile. Don’t wait until you are in pain to come to the dentist. A tooth or its root might be damaged and you would not necessarily know it until you are in pain. By then, you have missed the time frame where it could have been prevented. An experienced dentist near you can help keep your teeth and gums healthy.

If you are looking for a qualified family dentist in the Murray Hill area of New York City contact our office. We would be happy to schedule a dental exam for you and the members of your family.

  • A healthy and luxurious smile.
  • You save money and time by taking the time to make short visits to the dentist to practice preventative dentistry.
  • Sweeter smelling breathe, a whiter smile and healthy teeth.

"I'm a huge fan of this office! I've been to a-lot of dental offices in my years of being in NYC, and Making You Smile is by far my favorite. They are extremely professional, kind, clean, and consistently do a great job. I live in BK and trek it out to mid-town just to visit them rather than finding a new office closer. Highly recommend!"

"Short, if any, wait times; fantastic and efficient office support staff; wonderful bedside manner; I've really never had any sort of complaint whatsoever. I've recommended him to four friends, who have each also referred friends."

"Going to the Dentist isn't something I enjoy at all. After a 2 year hiatus, due to the pandemic, I was in need of some serious teeth therapy. I was recommended (by a coworker) to Dr. Jalbout and his team. What a great experience. I was at ease, comfortable, welcomed, and nurtured from the very beginning. My anxiety level went from a 10 to a 2. Thank you to an outstanding staff! I have found a new home for my future dental needs."

- Kevin McDaniel

"Dr. Jalbout and his team are excellent. I’ve never been more comfortable with a dental team; I’ve almost fallen asleep in the chair during big procedures. They are efficient, attentive, and caring, and Dr. J works with a precision that I've never witnessed. I’ve moved further and further away from Dr. Jalbout’s office over time and still commute to the city to see him. He’s that good."

- Roland Tiangco

"The best dental experience I have had by far. I always get excited for my appointments at Making You Smile. I leave every appointment more confident about my smile. The administrative and dental team are both very professional and friendly. The space is clean and tidy and employees have high tech PPE. The quality of dental service I have received has been really great. I think Ziad Jalbout is an amazing doctor, I appreciate that he made sure I understood everything before starting, and that made me feel more comfortable. lastly the quality of dental work is superb. I recommend you come here for all your dental needs."
