Oral Exams & New Patient Exams
Every oral examination offers us an opportunity to provide up-to-date dental care for you and your family. Routine examinations include a variety of diagnostic tools, which allow us to have a 360-degree view of your oral health. In a regular dental exam, we can note current and potential health issues, providing preventative and restorative care that helps you maintain a strong, healthy smile.
Dental Hygiene Appointments
Maintaining healthy teeth at home is an important step in achieving and maintaining your oral health. However, visiting our dental hygienists for frequent dental hygiene appointments helps remove some of the materials that can build up on your teeth and under your gum line over time. Although each patient will have different needs, we recommend booking regular appointments with us every six months to maintain a clean, healthy mouth.
Oral Cancer Screening
Screening for oral cancer regularly is an essential part of every dental examination we perform. We use a combination of knowledge, techniques, and technology to check your mouth for signs and symptoms of oral cancer that are often difficult to see or feel. The VELscope tool helps us look below the surface of your soft tissue, ensuring that we have a thorough view of your oral health at all times. Be sure to book an oral examination with our team right away if you notice symptoms of oral cancer, such as unexplained pain or lesions, lumps, or red or white patches in the mouth.
Protective dental care is often achieved with the help of dental sealants, a thin plastic coating that can be painted over the chewing surfaces of the teeth. The process is simple; our dentists and dental hygienists will prepare your mouth by cleaning and drying the teeth. Then, we will paint the sealant over the teeth and harden it using a special curing light. Once in place, the sealant acts as an extra layer of protection against tooth decay and provides an even surface to make caring for your teeth at home easier.
At Larry Lerner Dental, we use a digital x-ray system that generates 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to produce accurate images on-screen within seconds, helping us show you exactly what we see in your teeth and virtually eliminating the need to take multiple images in a visit. We also keep your images on file for reference during future visits.
Although patients don’t often have any reason to consider the health of the insides of the teeth, infections and inflammation inside a tooth can quickly make this area a significant concern. Inside the root canals of your teeth is a substance known as tooth pulp, which is made up of nerves and blood vessels. The tooth pulp can become very aggravated when it is inflamed, often causing patients significant pain. If you experience a severe ongoing toothache, you may need to visit us for a dental examination to determine if you require a root canal.
The teeth are designed with staying power in mind, which is why it takes a lot of knowledge and skill to remove them safely. The experienced dental team at Larry Lerner Dental provides simple extractions in our dental offices in Thornhill. We focus on detailed treatment planning to ensure that your extraction is successful, leaving you with minimal healing time and multiple options for restorations.
