Comprehensive Exam

All first-time patients undergo a comprehensive exam. The more detail you provide, the easier it is for our dentist to get to the root of the problem.

The comprehensive exam also includes an examination of your teeth and gums.

X-Rays

X-rays are a way of diagnosing problems that can otherwise go unnoticed. Tooth decay, abscesses, impacted teeth, and jawbone damage will all be visible on an x-ray. The details x-rays provide could make a big difference for your overall oral hygiene.

Our dentist may recommend a panoramic radiograph. The images from panoramic x-ray provide a complete image of your jaws. This helps pinpoint any damage that tooth decay may have caused to the jaws.

Since each treatment plan is developed based on your specific needs, it’s extremely important that you are clear about your expectations from the start.
