Exams & X-rays

A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by Dr. Tran at your initial dental visit.  Regular check-up exams with Dr. Tran will include the following:

  • Low Radiation Digital X-rays: Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.  X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, lymph nodes, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Oral Cancer Screening Device (OralID’s fluorescence technology): uses a blue light that allows the doctor to identify oral cancer, pre-cancer and other abnormal lesions at an earlier stage, thus saving lives.
  • Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
  • Examination of existing restorations: Check previous fillings, crowns, bridges, etc.
