Buccal Calgary

Part of a dental examination involves documenting the fillings already present in your mouth, in addition to any cavities that need to be filled. We do a complete charting of your mouth when we do a dental check-up?Let?s call it your ?mouth finger print.?

When we check all around your mouth, we document the ?state? of your teeth and underlying gums. Many of the words that you will hear us say as we do the exam will seem very foreign to you; it?s like a different language.

One of the words you may hear is buccal. ?This tooth needs a buccal,? means that a certain surface of the tooth needs it?s buccal surface filled.

The word buccal means something though: it?s the surface of the tooth that is opposite the cheek.
