Oral Examination in Port Elizabeth

An oral examination, also known as a dental check-up or dental exam, is a routine procedure performed by our experienced dentists to evaluate the health of your teeth, gums, and overall oral cavity. 

It involves a thorough inspection of your mouth, teeth, and surrounding tissues to identify any signs of dental problems or oral diseases.

Our oral examination service is designed to assess your dental health comprehensively, ensuring early detection of any issues and providing personalized care tailored to your needs.

Importance of Oral Examination

Regular oral examinations are essential for maintaining good oral health and overall well-being. 

Here’s why oral examinations are so important:

  • Early Detection of Dental Issues: Oral examinations allow us to identify dental problems in their earliest stages, when they are most easily treatable. By catching issues like cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer early, we can prevent them from progressing and causing more extensive damage to your teeth and gums.
  • Preventive Care: Oral examinations also provide an opportunity for preventive care, such as professional teeth cleanings and fluoride treatments. These preventive measures help remove plaque and tartar buildup, reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease, and keep your smile healthy and vibrant.
  • Customized Treatment Planning: Following your oral examination, our team will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and goals. Whether you require restorative dental work, cosmetic enhancements, or preventive care, we’re here to help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health for life.
  • Overall Health Benefits: Research has shown that oral health is closely linked to overall health and well-being. Poor oral hygiene and untreated dental problems can contribute to systemic issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory infections. By prioritizing your oral health through regular examinations and professional dental care, you can help safeguard your overall health and longevity.


Before your oral examination at Every Smile Dentistry in Port Elizabeth, there are a few simple steps you can take to ensure a smooth and productive appointment:

  • Maintain Your Regular Oral Hygiene Routine: Brush and floss your teeth as usual before your appointment. This helps ensure that your mouth is clean and free of debris, allowing our dentists to perform a thorough examination.
  • Make Note of Any Concerns: Take a moment to jot down any specific dental concerns or issues you’d like to discuss with our team during your examination. Whether it’s tooth sensitivity, gum bleeding, or anything else, we’re here to address your needs and provide personalized care.
  • Arrive on Time: Plan to arrive a few minutes early for your appointment to complete any necessary paperwork and ensure a timely start to your examination. This allows us to devote ample time to assessing your dental health and addressing any questions or concerns you may have.
  • Bring Your Dental History: If you’re a new patient, please bring any relevant dental records or medical history information with you to your appointment. This helps our team gain a comprehensive understanding of your oral health background and tailor our examination to meet your specific needs.


During your oral examination at Every Smile Dentistry, our experienced dentists will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your dental health, focusing on the following key areas:

  1. Visual Inspection: Our dentists will visually examine your teeth, gums, tongue, and other oral tissues for any signs of abnormalities, such as tooth decay, gum inflammation, or lesions.
  2. Periodontal Evaluation: We will assess the health of your gums and supporting structures to check for signs of gum disease, including gum recession, pocket depth, and bleeding upon probing.
  3. Dental X-Rays: In some cases, we may take dental X-rays to get a detailed view of your teeth and underlying structures. X-rays help us detect hidden dental problems, such as cavities between teeth, impacted wisdom teeth, or bone loss.
  4. Oral Cancer Screening: As part of your examination, we will perform a thorough screening for oral cancer, checking for any suspicious lesions or abnormalities in your mouth and throat.
  5. Discussion and Recommendations: After completing your examination, our dentists will discuss their findings with you in detail, answering any questions you may have and recommending appropriate follow-up care or treatment options as needed.


Regular oral examinations offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Early detection of dental problems, allowing for prompt treatment and prevention of further complications.
  • Maintenance of good oral health, leading to improved overall health and well-being.
  • Prevention of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral issues through personalized preventive care.
  • Preservation of your natural teeth and smile for years to come.


After your oral examination, our team will discuss any findings with you and recommend appropriate follow-up care or treatment if needed. 

We will also provide guidance on maintaining good oral hygiene at home to support your dental health between visits.

The staff is sooo friendly. I have a big fear when it comes to dentists, but my dentist calmed me down so well and talked me through what she was going to do and what she was doing while busy. I had an infected tooth that she extracted. I felt no pain and it was over within seconds. I will definitely go back.

The place is overall beautiful and the reception guys are too friendly. My only issue was the doctor. 1st she didn’t greet or introduce herself I had to ask the assistant what the Doctors name was. Also she was not patient with my son and seemed irritated most of the time. I however have to give thanks to Musa who was the assistant that guy is amazing and super patient he made my son super comfortable and explained every process to me and my son.
