Dental Exams

A comprehensive oral health exam will be performed by your dentist on your first visit to Reliance Dental.  At regular dental check-up appointments, your dentist and hygienist will include the following:

  • Examine diagnostic x-rays: Essential for detection of decay, cysts, tumors, and bone loss, as well as determining tooth and root positions
  • Periodontal (gum) disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for signs of periodontal disease
  • Examine for tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay
  • Examine existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns and/or implants
