Your dentist may also provide you with a series of x-rays to better see what is below the surface and invisible to the naked eye. This helps to easily diagnose and begin a treatment plan for a variety of dental issues including decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. Your dentist will also screen for oral cancer and a gum disease evaluation during your exam. They will also check on any past restorations you had down for your teeth.
