What is a Dental Exam?
A dental exam, commonly referred to as a dental checkup, is the process used by our clinical team to carefully review your oral health. At Dental Partners East Ridge, our dental exams involve the entire mouth, as a component of a first time visit or a regular 6-month check-up. Additionally, dental checkups can asses your overall oral health. As your local Chattanooga dentist, we understand the importance of good oral hygiene. Dental exams can be used to identify a specific issue in one area of the mouth, such as, swelling, broken teeth, or other dental issues.
