Comprehensive Initial Exam
- We pride ourselves in being very thorough in the diagnostic and exam process. Your first exam, the comprehensive initial exam, will utilize digital x-rays, an intra-oral camera (if necessary, or desired by you) and a visual examination using magnification. In addition to checking your teeth, we also check your head and neck and oral soft tissue (called mucosa) for cancer/abnormalities, your occlusion (or bite), your TMJ (jam joints) and periodontal tissues (gums and surrounding soft tissue). We then customize a treatment plan specifically for your situation and leave ample time for questions.
