What are comprehensive dental exams?

Comprehensive exams are performed at every six-month check-up at Luth & Heideman Center for Dental Care. Your comprehensive dental exam in Las Vegas, Nevada will include low-radiation digital X-rays, a full-mouth digital photograph series, a Doppler (ultrasound) TMJ analysis, a DIAGNOdent® laser cavity detection scan, and a VELscope® oral cancer screening. We will also include a head and neck muscle evaluation, a soft tissue/periodontal evaluation, an orthodontic/bite evaluation, and a cosmetic evaluation (if desired).
