When you come in for your professional teeth cleaning appointment, Dr. Christine Lee will also perform a comprehensive exam in Woodstock, Georgia. Our dentist will check for dental issues and potential issues. The dental exam will include the following:
- Extraoral exam: Our dentist will examine the face and neck for any nodules or swellings that may be abnormal.
- Intraoral exam: Christine Lee will examine the cheeks, hard palate, tongue, and gingiva. The teeth will also be examined.
- Soft tissue exam: The soft tissues of the head and neck, as well as the inside of the mouth, will be examined for irregularities.
- Lymph nodes exam: Christine Lee will examine the major lymph nodes of the head and neck. Any nodes that are enlarged, fixed, tender, etc. will be noted.
At the completion of your comprehensive dental exam, our dentist will diagnose any issues that were detected. Treatment options will be presented and our dentist and team will take the time to explain what is involved with each treatment. We want you to be able to take an active role in your dental care.
