Who is a good candidate for a dental exam?
All patients should get oral evaluations no less than once every year for general needs. Dental exams can also be conducted if necessary to assess dental discomfort, trauma, or other issues that could manifest between visits in our New York, NY office. Cavities, which may not cause distinguishable symptoms to form until the more advanced phases, and periodontal disease, the leading instigator of missing teeth, will be easily traceable with a dental exam. If dental concerns are detected immediately, our dental team at Madison Avenue Dentists can generally offer a wider range of options for treatment.
What should I expect during my visit?
Yearly exams at our New York, NY practice begin with a review of your medical record. A member of our team will also review any dental issues or cosmetic smile goals you have to find out more about your general dental wellness. At particular yearly exams, a series of digital x-rays might be performed to give our dental team greater insight into the health of your teeth and bone tissues. We can then screen for oral cancer, evaluate the evenness of your arches and jaw joints, and look at your teeth for breaks, as well as the comfort of any dental appliances. A gum evaluation may also be done to identify potential symptoms of periodontal disease.

Dental Exam FAQs
How often should I schedule a dental exam?
Typically, we recommend for patients to schedule a full dental exam at least once per year. However, some patients — especially those with a history of dental issues — should schedule them more frequently. In these cases, our patients tend to schedule exams about once every six months.
What is the difference between a dental exam and a dental cleaning?
During a dental exam, our staff will look carefully at your teeth, mouth, throat, and gums in order to identify any signs of cavities, disease, cancer, or other issues. A dental cleaning, on the other hand, involves the use of various instruments to remove plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth.
Are dental exams painful?
No. While it is incredibly common to feel nervous about an appointment at the dentist, our patients do not notice any pain or discomfort during a routine service, such as an exam. This is due in large part to our combination of experience and advanced equipment.
How do I prepare for a dental exam?
For best results, Madison Avenue Dentists recommends that patients arrive at their appointment with freshly brushed teeth. You should also come prepared with any relevant medical history and a list of medications and supplements you are currently taking. Lastly, be sure to bring your insurance card, if applicable. This will allow us to validate coverage prior to treatment.
What should I do after a dental exam?
After a dental exam in New York, NY, you will need to follow all aftercare instructions given by our staff. Depending on the findings of your examination, you may be asked to return for follow-up visits or treatment. Remember to maintain a regular brushing and flossing schedule to ensure optimal oral health!

If you experience pain, swelling, trauma, or other unusual or uncomfortable symptoms, please do not hesitate to contact our facility.
