Our comprehensive dental exams in Peoria, Arizona include an examination of your teeth and the supporting structures, including the gums and jawbone. We also include an oral cancer screening, which is performed with the VELscope® oral cancer screening device. Our experienced dentists and dental team will carefully examine your smile, checking for signs of tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease), abnormal or uneven tooth wear, oral cancer, and other dental problems. We will also check your existing dental restorations, such as crowns and fillings, to evaluate the need for maintenance or repair. Comprehensive dental exams are an essential component of maintaining good oral health.
