Comprehensive Dental Examinations in Santa Maria

Comprehensive exams are far more detailed and comprehensive than the general checkups and cleanings you had as a child. Michael R. Gomez, DDS provides thorough evaluations of your oral health history and the current health of your mouth, teeth, gums, neck, jaws and throat to ensure optimal dental health. Having these examinations conducted on a regular basis is important in order to keep track of any changes in dental wellbeing. Dr. Gomez employs advanced technology to detect even the slightest signs of oral cancer or gum disease, as well as inspecting any previous dental work that might have been done on your teeth. This tool allows for the construction of long-term strategies tailored specifically for each patient's needs.

Comprehensive dental examinations generally include:

  • Reviewing medical history forms and any applicable dental insurance information
  • Utilizing X-rays to inspect closely beneath the surface of your gums
  • Oral cancer screening for early detection
  • Thorough examination of teeth and gums
  • Evaluation of biting, chewing, and swallowing functions
  • TMJ assessment to determine the condition of your jaw joint

At Michael R. Gomez DDS we understand how important it is to maintain good oral health habits throughout life. If you have any questions about comprehensive dental exams or would like to schedule an appointment with us please don’t hesitate to reach out today!
