Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, oral cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment recommendations. We will also take digital x-rays, which include the panoramic and bite-wing radiographs for proper diagnosis of decay, periodontal disease, and screening for bone/TMJ abnormalities. State of the art diagnostic tools are used to determine disease activity and for patient education. Photos, models and diagrams are used to educate you and make you fully aware of the procedures that are recommended. A comprehensive treatment plan is organized and your options are reviewed with you.
