Your First Visit With Us
For your First visit with us, unless there is an immediate concern, will begin with a New Patient Exam which includes:
- A full review of your dental and medical history.
- An oral cancer exam
- An examination of your gums for evidence of periodontal disease and a tooth by tooth exam.
- Any necessary x-rays will then be taken to detect any decay that can’t be seen visually
- We also check the Jaw joint and perform a bite analysis looking for any abnormalities or signs of TMJ problems
During your exam we will be using an Intra oral camera. This provides you a visual tour of your mouth so that you can see what we see! We will be pointing out any evidence of issues or disease on your teeth and gums. Upon completion of your exam we will be discussing the findings and the best way to begin treatment.
It is our duty to examine your mouth and assess its current status, make a diagnosis and develop a lifetime treatment plan that will achieve your optimal comfort, function, health and esthetics. Your health is our primary concern.
