During Your Appointment
The road to optimum oral health begins with a comprehensive oral exam. We will take digital x-rays of your teeth and jaws to find out if there are any issues within the bone or tooth structures of which we need to be aware. Your teeth and gums will be examined and checked for decay and gingivitis respectively. Your hygienist uses this portion of the exam to check for periodontal disease and if it is present, gauge its extent. When the preliminary exam is completed your teeth will be cleaned.
The next phase includes a final check for decay and other issues as well as a soft tissue exam for oral cancers. The dentist uses the information from the preliminary exam and x-rays to perform the final check and develop your customized treatment plan if needed. Any concerns will be discussed at this point.
