What is a Dental Exam?

As part of her commitment to help every patient achieve a beautiful smile and great oral health, general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Victoria Veytsman, performs annual dental examinations to evaluate the patient's teeth, gums, and jaws at her dental office in Midtown East Manhattan. During the dental exam, Dr. Veytsman assesses the patient's overall oral health and looks for signs of concern and disease. If any concerns are found during the examination, Dr. Veytsman will set up a dental consultation with the patient to go over any problems and create a treatment plan based on the patient's needs. By performing annual dental exams, Dr. Veytsman is able to catch problems early, which usually means faster, easier treatment for the patient. Dr. Veytsman uses state-of-the-art dental technology, like digital X-rays, to better evaluate and diagnose the patient's overall dental health.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Examinations?

Dental exams performed by a professional dentist are an irreplaceable part of a proper oral health regimen. Benefits of annual dental exams administered by Dr. Veytsman at her Manhattan, NY facility include:

  • Pinpointing any possible oral health issues
  • Extending the healthy lifespan of your teeth
  • Minimizing the risk of uncomfortable and expensive dental emergencies
  • Employing the latest tools to examine your overall oral well-being
  • Digital x-rays display structural issues and use minimal radiation
  • Monitoring the condition of existing restorations or other dental work
  • Giving patients tips on how to best care for their teeth at home
  • The exam is both thorough and quick

Who Is A Good Candidate For Dental Exams?

Manhattan, NY residents of any age should attend oral exams at least once every year for preventive treatment. Dental exams might also be done to assess dental discomfort, trauma, or additional problems that might manifest between visits. Gum disease — the central reason for tooth loss — and dental cavities might not cause notable symptoms until reaching the more progressed stages. If oral problems are diagnosed immediately, our dental professionals can often provide more comprehensive solutions for treatment.

What to Expect during a Dental Exam

The dental examination seeks to evaluate the overall health of the patient’s teeth, gums, bones, and jaw. During the examination, Dr. Veytsman will look at the patient’s mouth as well and take X-rays to get a more in-depth understanding of their oral care needs. Through physical exams and digital X-rays, Dr. Veytsman will be able to assess and diagnose any cavities, chips, disease, and decay in the mouth. Patients will also receive a teeth cleaning following their examination. Dr. Veytsman will discuss any issues or concerns regarding their exam as well as offer recommendations for care options.

What happens After a Dental Exam?

Dr. Veytsman highly recommends that patients receive a dental examination and check-up at least once a year, in addition to cleanings every six months. This ensures optimal dental health for each patient. 

How Much Does a Dental Exam Cost?

Our front office will consult with the patient’s insurance companies prior to their visit, since most companies cover this cost up to 100%. Patients paying out of pocket may discuss payment options during their consultation with Dr. Veytsman.
