Comprehensive Exams in Waukesha

Getting a Thorough and Comprehensive Dental Exam in Waukesha

Achieving your best smile is a matter of maintaining proper oral health. Our dentist, Tom Kraklow, DDS, and his professional dental staff perform comprehensive exams to assess the health of your teeth and gums. The results of your exam are used to come up with a dental care plan for ongoing oral health.

What to Expect During Comprehensive Exams

When you search for a "comprehensive exam near me" and find our Kraklow Quality Dentistry office, you can schedule your exam. During the assessment, you can discuss your overall health and any dental health concerns you have.

Our dental assistant will take a series of X-rays of your entire mouth and present the results to Dr. Kraklow, who will review the X-rays and check for chipped, cracked or decayed teeth. You'll also receive a bite and jaw evaluation as well as a gum screening to check for the presence of periodontal disease. Your "comprehensive exam near me" also includes an oral cancer screening and a TMJ examination. During or after the exam, you can talk to Dr. Kraklow about any dental cosmetic concerns and how you can make the appropriate changes to get the smile you want.

All the results from your exam will be compiled into a tailored treatment plan Dr. Kraklow will discuss with you in detail. He and his staff will provide you with practical tips and follow-up appointments that will help you maintain a beautiful, healthy smile.

Comprehensive Exams for Specific Issues

During the exam, Dr. Kraklow may notice signs of halitosis. This is an embarrassing dental issue, but you should discuss it with him if you've tried mouthwashes or breath fresheners but haven't been able to treat the condition. The dental team can make you aware of factors that can lead to bad breath, such as diseases or illnesses, certain medications, plaque buildup, gum disease, smoking or food particles that become lodged in the teeth and gums. Dr. Kraklow will offer a customized treatment plan to eliminate halitosis and help you get your confidence back.

Finding Dr. Kraklow's office by searching for a "comprehensive exam near me" will also allow you to make an appointment for an oral cancer screening. This form of cancer can be especially dangerous because the condition is often undetected until it is in its late stages. If oral cancer is detected and treated early, the risk of death is significantly low. About 30,000 oral cancer cases are diagnosed annually, and Dr. Kraklow and his team will implement the necessary assessments and treatments to detect and reduce the progression of this disease.
