Our Dental Exams and Checkups

Our dentists and oral care experts provide a full range of dental examination services and solutions tailored to help you meet your goals. Here’s a detailed breakdown of our dental checkup and cleaning services. 

Comprehensive Dental Checkup

At The Chicago Dental Studio, our providers perform comprehensive dental exams to assess the overall well-being of your hard and soft tissues, like your teeth and gums. 

During your dental check-up, our providers perform oral cancer screenings, capture intraoral images, take panoramic X-rays, and conduct wellness scans of your mouth. X-rays and similar imaging allow us to take a closer look at the health of your teeth and analyze your jawbone at the same time, revealing any bone loss, damaged tooth structure, and deep tooth decay. 

These steps help thoroughly diagnose any issues and educate you on how to best care for your oral health, ensuring you understand what is going on inside your mouth confidently.

We also perform periodontal exams to check for recession, pockets, inflammation, and other signs of disease. During this dentist checkup, we also identify potential treatments that can help you preserve pristine teeth and healthy gums. 

Our comprehensive dental exams can also include X-ray imaging as well as dental screenings, during which our dentists look for specific signs related to these conditions to preserve your teeth’s overall health and appearance.

Aesthetic Exams

An aesthetic exam or cosmetic consultation is a type of dental checkup that not only focuses on the health of your gums and teeth but also their cosmetic appearance. 

We understand that your smile is one of your most defining features. During this consultation, we ensure your teeth are in good oral health and develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs and desired cosmetic outcomes, while showing you examples of our work in cases most similar to yours, and explaining all the processes of cosmetic treatment – so you feel confident and well informed when deciding on improving the cosmetic appearance of your teeth.

Emergency Dental Exams

The Chicago Dental Studio offers thorough emergency exams to address unexpected dental issues. Our expert team is equipped to handle dental emergencies, provide immediate pain relief, accurately diagnose the issue, and swiftly create a treatment plan. Whether it’s a sudden toothache or an unexpected injury, we’ll ensure you get the care you need to keep your smile healthy

Bite Evaluations

An affected bite can cause pain, jaw grinding, and unnecessary wear on your teeth. The dentists at The Chicago Dental Studio perform bite evaluations to understand how your teeth fit together when your mouth is closed and recommend treatments to help correct their alignment.

You don’t have to do much to prepare for your dental exam at The Chicago Dental Studio. Before your exam, brush your teeth and floss as usual. Also, think about questions you’d like to ask your dentist, and make yourself as comfortable as possible. 

If you experience dental anxiety, contact us in advance, and we’ll make preparations to make your exam as comfortable as possible. 

Our dental exams may include:

Visual Examinations

The first step in your checkup is a visual examination. We perform a thorough inspection of your gums, teeth, and all parts of your mouth. Our goal is to spot inflammation and other visible issues that may affect your oral health. 

Diagnostic Imaging

As dental professionals can only detect so much visually, we also perform diagnostic imaging like X-rays. This way, we can see beneath the surface and ensure that there are no issues affecting bone density, dental roots, or the structure of your teeth.

Cleaning, Scaling, and Flossing

As part of your examination, whether it’s comprehensive or a general check-up, our providers will likely perform a cleaning based on the status of your oral health. Using special tools and technology, we gently remove buildup and stains to help maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Dental Exam Risks and Safety

Dental exams are safe, but it’s important to let us know if you have any allergies or intolerances. At The Chicago Dental Studio, we use the latest technology, equipment, and techniques to ensure your safety and comfort, ensuring a smooth teeth checkup every single time.
