When you come to our dental office for the first time, our dentists and team will begin with an initial oral exam. This helps us have a better understanding of your dental history and what may be required to help keep your teeth healthy.
As part of this process, our dentists will perform a visual examination of your teeth to check their structure and the oral anatomy of your jaw. These exams usually include digital X-rays, which help us see the bone structure of your teeth beneath your gumline and are a perfectly safe and routine procedure. This process is important to view any dental decay that may have accumulated over time or diagnose more serious conditions like gum disease. Our dentists may also probe your mouth with dental tools to evaluate your gums and bite to help identify any other dental problems.
After your oral examination is complete, a customized treatment plan will be presented at a follow-up appointment. The treatment plan will include the options that are best suited for your needs. All costs and financial situations are taken into consideration to allow for your work schedule and life events. This treatment plan presentation will include the advantages, disadvantages, risks and alternatives to all treatments listed in the plan.
This approach allows our dentists to present a lifetime strategy for achieving a healthy, attractive, appearance in the best way suitable to fit your lifestyle and dental objectives. Our goal is to lower the risks of treatments and have predictable outcomes by being proactive in our care.
If you have any questions, we invite you to share your concerns with us. We are more than happy to help you meet your dental goals.
