A complete oral health check-up is recommended at an annual frequency for adults, regardless of whether the patient has all his teeth, is missing one or more or is completely edentulous. This check-up is particularly important before any surgical intervention in the mouth, in order to avoid complications.
During this examination, the specialist inspects the following items: teeth, gums, inside cheeks, lips, lymph nodes under the jaw and soft tissues of the throat. To help him evaluate the general condition of each of these elements and detect any abnormality or disease, the specialist uses certain instruments and radiographs and/or photographs.

The importance of oral health
During the oral health check-up, the dental hygienist is able to provide advice so that patients can maintain or even improve their oral health in order to keep their teeth and gums free of disease.
It is recommended to have an impeccable oral health before starting an implantology treatment. The specialist may propose corrective measures to the patient before implant placement to correct certain conditions or prevent them from worsening. These conditions could interfere with successful healing following an implant procedure or even compromise its success.
With the information gathered during the complete oral examination, the specialist can then recommend whether or not to place dental implants, while taking into account existing contraindications.
