Initial Oral Examination

Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.

Regular dental exams are an important part of every patients health care. During a dental exam the  
hygienist will clean your teeth, check for cavities and gum disease. A thorough examination can help evaluate your risk of developing future problems.
