Intraoral Health

Intraoral HealthIntraoral photographs will also be used to record the health of your dentition. These photos will make it easier to explain your oral condition to you and your insurance company if required. The photos can show small cracks or leakage around old fillings that can’t be seen on a two dimensional radiograph as they are often blocked out by existing restorations.Intraoral camera technology allows our patients to see their mouths as we see it, up close and in living color. You are able to see problems and make informed and educated decisions about your treatment.

Your examinations will generally include the following:

  • Health history review
  • Gum disease evaluation
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Visual examination for tooth decay
  • Evaluation of diagnostic digital x-rays to identify if there are cysts, tumors, decay between the teeth or other problems that can’t be seen by the naked eye
  • Evaluation of status of current restorations (fillings, crowns, etc.)
  • Orthodontic evaluation to check that teeth have erupted properly and are not interfering with proper function.
  • Preliminary cosmetic evaluation to provide you with aesthetic options available
  • Short and long-term treatment options


Oral Cancer Screening

As part of this examination, we use advanced technology called Velscope to examine your oral tissues. Through the use of computers and filters, Velscope enables us to examine and check for abnormalities in layers of the tissues that are deeper than the human eye alone can see, enabling any abnormalities to be detected early. This provides you with the best oral cancer screening currently available.

Our Richmond dentists will carefully review all the information to identify a diagnosis and a treatment plan specifically designed for you including all of the various treatment options. The findings and treatment options will be thoroughly explained to you. At Richmond Centre Dental Clinic, our dentists will answer any questions you may have. Our goal is to leave you with a thorough understanding of your dental conditions and the treatment required to restore your teeth and gums to optimum dental health.
