Dental Examinations in West Haven - Sylvan, Portland, OR

Dental examination room at JJ Perkiomaki, DMD in West Haven - Sylvan, Portland, ORScheduling regular dental exams with Dr. Perkiomaki at our SW Portland dental office will help protect your oral health. By having dental exams, our dental team has an opportunity to detect any problems and provide advice on caring for your teeth. With consistent dental check-ups we can catch problems quickly, before they become worse. Too many patients ignore dental problems, and that does not make them go away, it only allows them to have time to get worse.

Your dental exam begins with our dental hygienist. She will first clean your teeth, removing tartar and plaque that has built up. Then Dr, Perkiomaki will identify any inflammation in the gum and evaluate your risk of developing cavities, bone loss, or anything that appears abnormal.

Our dental examinations generally include:

•  an inquiry of your overall health. Medications that you are taking or disorders you have may effect your teeth.
•  asking if you smoke or live with someone who does.
•  evaluate the levels of tooth decay.
•  seeing what tooth restoration is needed, if any.
•  check your jaw alignment.
•  check for any bite problems.
•  evaluate signs of periodontium or gum disease.
•  measure your gum pockets.
•  check for gums receding from your teeth.
•  evaluate hidden problems using dental x-rays.
•  screen for any abnormalities or oral cancer, either malignant or benign.
•  demonstrate proper daily hygiene.
•  evaluate any prosthetics including dentures or bridges for adjustment.

Knowing that lifestyle choices can effect your teeth, we may also include information about diet, smoking, and other lifestyle habits.
