What should I expect during my first visit?
During the new patient exam, we will first discuss your medical and dental history as well as your goals for dental health. Then, a full mouth set of digital x-rays will be taken. Along with this, we will complete a thorough oral cancer screening, TMJ evaluation, measure your gums to check for gum disease, and examine your teeth for cavities, wear & fractures. We will then advise you of anything abnormal and create a plan for any treatment we feel is necessary. If you do not require treatment for gum disease, you will also receive a healthy mouth cleaning. Finally, your personal treatment plan will be presented to you and we can answer any questions you might have regarding the treatment or financial considerations.
