All first-time patients have to undergo a comprehensive exam. This includes a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. The more details you provide, the easier it will be for our dentist to evaluate your situation.
X-rays are a way of diagnosing problems that are not easily visible. These include tooth decay, abscesses, impacted teeth and jawbone damage. The details x-rays provide could make all the difference for your overall oral hygiene. Our dentist may also recommend a panoramic radiograph. The dental imaging technique provides a complete visual of your jaws, which helps in pinpointing any damage that tooth decay may have caused to the bone.
Once the comprehensive exam and x-rays are complete, our dentist will provide you with solutions to your dental problems. Through a comprehensive treatment plan, we can resolve the problems that are adversely affecting your oral hygiene. Since each treatment plan is developed based on your specific needs, it is imperative that you are clear about your expectations from the start.
It can be easy to forget dental appointments due to everyday life and our routines. But now, you do not have to worry about remembering this detail. Our office will handle the stress for you by sending you a smile reminder about your next appointment via email or an SMS and even driving directions for your initial visit.
