Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Dental examinations generally include the following:
Gum disease screening
Oral cancer screening
Visual tooth decay evaluation
Gum pocket measurement and tracking
X-ray examination to detect: tooth decay, cysts, tumors, problems below the gums, and other hidden issues
Dental x-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Your Albany dentist can detect issues with x-rays before they become problems, saving you money in the long run by preventing the need for more expensive procedures or surgeries. X-rays are primarily used to detect internal tooth decay, cysts (fluid-filled sacks at the base of your teeth), tumors, impacted teeth, and teeth that are still erupting.
