Annual Exams/Periodic Exams
Dr. Petrini and Dr. Schmidt recommend an annual examination for all denture wearers. This is important to ensure the health and comfort of your supporting tissues and proper fit of your appliance(s). An annual exam includes an oral cancer screening, examination of your mouth, and evaluation and professional cleaning of your appliance(s).
Periodic exams are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During your Periodic exam, usually performed once a year at one of your cleaning appointments, we will:
- Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
- Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
