GENERAL ORAL AND DENTURE EXAM

At the start of any major denture procedure a General Oral and Denture Exam is required. In order to increase the potential for a patient to successfully wear their dentures, the denturist needs to have a clear “picture” of what oral conditions need to be considered when making the denture. The General Oral and Denture Exam is a comprehensive examination of the mouth, head, neck, and temporal mandibular joint (TMJ). It is broken into categories which include: Extraoral Findings, Intraoral Findings, Pathology, Existing Dentures and an Odontogram which records any findings found in the mouth. It will normally take around 15-20 minutes to complete this exam.

Individuals who wear dentures can experience rapid and unexpected changes in their mouth. In order to prevent potential problems that can occur in the future a General Oral and Denture Exam should be completed on an annual basis.

SPECIFIC EXAM

A specific exam is required only in situations where a patient is experiencing new challenges in a specific area of their mouth that may require further attention and treatment.  In most cases a specific exam is completed when a denture may require a reline.
