What is a dental exam?
Manhattan cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jason Kasarsky, understands the importance of maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile. That is why Dr. Kasarsky’s New York offices offer a number of oral health services to provide each patient with the best care possible. One of the top preventative measures, the annual dental examination, allows a thorough examination of the state of the patient’s gums, teeth, jaw, and bones to check for signs of decay and diseases then work with the patient to come up with a plan to treat their needs. Dental examinations help Dr. Kasarsky and his patients be proactive with their oral health and detect problems in early stages for easier treatment.

do i need a dental exam?
During a dental examination, the dentist will thoroughly check the teeth, gums, jaw, and bones for any signs of decay or oral problems. Dental examinations are used to detect early signs of concerns including cavities, oral cancer, gum disease, and more. The dentist will use dental X-rays to help diagnose any problems that cannot be seen with the eye, such as damage to the jaw or an abscess. Following the dental examination, patients will usually receive a dental cleaning.
how much does a dental exam cost?
The typical cost of a dental examination is approximately $100 - $300, but since it is considered preventative care, all or part of the cost of these examinations are usually covered by dental insurance. Our office will confirm the patient’s coverage before sending a bill for out-of-pocket expenses.
