The Academy of General Dentistry recommends twice yearly checkups for people of all ages.  During these visits Dr. Irwin will:

  • Conduct a visual exam of your mouth
  • Identify cracked and decayed teeth
  • Locate growths and sores on the tongue, palate, and mucous membrane that lines the cheeks and covers the gums.
  • Schedule X-ray exams as needed for each patient to detect hidden problems, particularly below the gums and between the teeth.
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Periodontal examinations
  • TMJ and occlusion assessment
  • Cosmetic evaluation
  • Discuss any concerns that you may have

Our office always takes into account the individual needs of the patient when formulating a treatment plan.  We will make sure that your exam as well as any other follow up treatment that may be necessary is conducted in a timely, convenient fashion allowing you to receive the best possible dental care. All findings are permanently recorded in the patient’s computerized dental chart, so that any changes or areas of concern can be effectively monitored.
