Dr Dental, What is a Comprehensive Oral Evaluation
A comprehensive oral evaluation is typically used by a general dentist and/or a dental specialist when evaluating a patient comprehensively. A comprehensive oral evaluation is a thorough evaluation and recording of the extraoral and intraoral hard and soft tissues. It may require interpretation of information acquired through additional diagnostic procedures. This would include the evaluation and recording of the patient’s dental and medical history and a general health assessment. It may typically include the evaluation and recording of dental decay, missing or unerupted teeth, restorations, occlusal relationships, periodontal conditions (including periodontal charting), hard and soft tissue anomalies, etc.
