Dental Exams

Mullins SC Dentist Office

Seeing Dr. Blevins and our experienced dental hygienists for a routine dental examination is critical to maintaining your oral health and well-being. After all, the first line of defense against serious health issues is prevention and early detection.

When you visit Blevins Dentistry for your routine dental exams every 4-6 months, we will be able to keep a close watch on your oral health, which is a major factor in preventing serious and costly dental problems down the road.

What Happens At a Dental Exam?

Regular dental exams allow us to catch oral health issues before they progress. Here are just a few of the services we provide as part of a thorough dental exam:

  • Oral cancer screenings to see if there are any abnormalities that might suggest oral cancer, such as spots, lumps, or sores that won’t heal
  • Visual examinations to check for tooth decay, gum erosion, or bone loss
  • Diagnostic x-rays to look for tumors, cysts, and other problems that are not always seen with the naked eye
  • Evaluation of dental work you’ve had done in the past (such as cosmetic, restorative, or orthodontics) to see if everything is still functioning correctly

We also do a thorough periodontal disease evaluation. According to the CDC, approximately half of adults over age 30 have periodontal disease. It’s important to catch this early, as later stages of gum disease are not reversible.

If we notice any problem areas during the examination, we’ll talk with you about the best course of action to correct them. We’ll also advise you on how to prevent future issues
