I recently had an exam and cleaning of my teeth and all the staff were so welcoming and friendly. They made me feel at ease with the procedures and talked me through everything. I would highly recommend this dental office. – Gina Zepeda Beasley

When you come into your trusted La Mesa dentist’s office for the first time, he will sit you on the chair and with his tools, he will look into your mouth and make an assessment of the current condition of your dental health. A patient’s oral health condition can be deemed healthy, satisfactory and poor. To be able to come up with this assessment various dental examinations will be carried out.

Dental Exams

  • Oral examination: The most basic dental examination carried out will involve taking the mouth mirror into the mouth and going over all the teeth to detect signs of disease and wear. It will involve visual inspection, palpation, percussion and thermal tests (when deemed necessary by the dentist)
  • Dental photographs: To properly visualize the condition of the mouth and for record purposes, dental photographs will be taken showing the teeth, the tongue and the face of the patient.
  • Dental casts: A three-dimensional representation of what can be seen in the mouth is provided by the dental cast. It is produced by taking an impression of both the upper and the lower jaw, after which the impression is poured with cement that shall harden into a perfect mould.
  • Dental radiographs: Finally, when a more definitive assessment of the tooth’s condition is required, a dental radiograph should be taken. It will give a picture of the inner layers of the teeth and the bone.
