Comprehensive Holistic Exam

A comprehensive holistic exam is an in-depth assessment of a patient’s oral health. It takes into consideration their overall well-being, lifestyle, and the interconnectedness of oral health with the rest of the body. It goes beyond the traditional examination of teeth and gums and focuses on a more holistic approach to dental care.

Importance of the exams

During the comprehensive holistic exam, our experienced biological dentist in Miami, FL, will conduct a thorough examination of the teeth, gums, and surrounding oral structures to assess overall dental health. We will also take the time to discuss your health history and any concerns or symptoms you may be experiencing.
The process allows our dentist in Miami, FL, to gain a comprehensive understanding of your oral health and its relationship to your overall well-being. This approach enables them to develop personalized treatment plans that address not only the dental concerns but also the underlying factors contributing to oral health issues. By considering the whole person, a comprehensive holistic exam promotes preventive care, patient education, and a focus on achieving optimal oral health in harmony with overall wellness.

Key aspects of comprehensive holistic exams

  • Oral Health Evaluation: The dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and oral tissues to assess their health and detect any signs of dental issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, or oral infections. 
  • Medical History Review: The dentist will review your medical history, including any pre-existing conditions, medications, allergies, or previous dental treatments. This helps the dentist understand your overall health status and identify any factors that may impact your oral health or influence treatment options.
  • Lifestyle and Habits Assessment: Your lifestyle factors and habits can have a significant impact on your oral health. The dentist will discuss aspects such as diet, tobacco use, alcohol consumption, oral hygiene practices, and any habits like teeth grinding or clenching. 
  • TMJ Evaluation: The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) play a crucial role in jaw movement and can affect overall oral health. The dentist will assess the TMJ’s function and look for signs of TMJ disorders, such as jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds, limited jaw movement, or muscle tenderness. 
  • Bite Analysis: A comprehensive holistic exam includes an analysis of your bite (occlusion). The dentist will evaluate how your upper and lower teeth come together and function during biting, chewing, and resting positions. 
  • Patient Education: During the exam, the dentist will provide oral health education tailored to your specific needs and concerns. They will explain the findings of the exam, discuss any potential dental issues, and offer guidance on preventive measures, oral hygiene techniques, and lifestyle modifications to optimize your oral health.
