Comprehensive Examination

When you hire us for your next dental cleaning or examination in West Lafayette, Drs. Cameron and Beth will take the necessary records to provide you with a thorough diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plan. This examination will include:

Oral Cancer Screening

In the past year, oral cancer has been the direct cause for more than 8,000 deaths in the United States. What makes this number even more tragic is that it can be identified early and prevented with an oral cancer screening.

If you use tobacco or smokeless tobacco products, you are in direct danger of developing oral cancer. Mohr & Mohr Smiles is dedicated to preventing oral cancer, which is why we offer oral cancer screenings that can identify pre-cancerous conditions.

If you smoke or use smokeless tobacco products, we recommend adding oral cancer screenings at each of your dental cleanings and examinations at our West Lafayette office.

Periodontal Examination

In the United States, periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) is the leading cause of tooth loss. We want you to have your own natural smile long into your life, which is why the dental hygienists at Mohr & Mohr Smiles will examine the tissue of your gums during your dental cleaning in West Lafayette, and ensure that the early stages of periodontal diseases are identified early.

The health of your gums and bone loss in the mouth are significant factors that we take into account when scrutinizing the outcomes of cosmetic dental treatments. We take your gum and bone tissue health very seriously.

Occlusal Examination

Sometimes your bite can be stronger than your bark. Depending on how much force you use when you bite down, you can sometimes negatively impact the positions of your jaw and teeth.

By smoothing the fillings of teeth or polishing the surface of your teeth’s enamel, Drs. Cameron and Beth are able to redistribute and redirect the force of your bite. The benefits of this redistribution can often eliminate headaches caused by irregular biting patterns.

Caries (Cavity) Examination

Cavities and tooth decay are a constant possibility when dealing with dental health. During a caries examination, Drs. Cameron and Beth will locate the areas of decay on both the chewing surfaces and in-between your teeth. Mohr & Mohr Smiles use clinical examination, X-ray (radiographic), and laser diagnostics to determine the health of your teeth and the best possible treatment for you.
