Complete Oral Exam (COE)
in Thornhill, Vaughan

"The mouth is the gateway to the body" Have you heard this before? It is true! Your oral health is very important. Therefore, having a thorough or complete oral exam regularly is integral to maintaining good overall health.  A COE is a comprehensive examination that encompasses both extra-oral (e.g. TMJ, skin, cheeks, lips, face muscles), intra-oral (e.g. teeth, gums, throat, all soft tissues inside your mouth) and x-ray assessment. You may be thinking, "if I have my teeth cleaned regularly and the dentist comes to look, is this a complete exam?" Although regular hygiene appointments and "recare" checks by the dentist are critical for maintaining good oral health, it is not the same as a complete exam. The COE typically takes 45 min to 1 hour of time and is recommended every 3-5 years.
