What Is Included in Your First Appointment?
Medical and Dental History Evaluation
We will review your medical and dental history. Additionally, we will discuss any concerns that you may have about your oral health.
We will take a full set of intraoral photographs to establish a baseline. These pictures will help us understand any possible issues.
Dental X-rays are an important part of routine dental care for adults and children. They can detect common problems and help our team identify gum disease. Dental X-rays also allow us to see inside the tooth, revealing problems that we could never see with a traditional examination.
In addition to the dental exam, we will conduct a TMJ and bite examination. During this process, we will check for tension or tenderness, as well as signs of grinding or clenching. Afterward, we will review our findings with you in detail, discuss a treatment plan, and address your questions. Our examination also includes your gums. When we know the health condition of your gum, we will be able to determine the type of dental cleaning that is best for you.
