Our new patient experience begins with a review of your health history, dental history, past experiences and your expectations. We complete an oral pathology screening and examine the health of your gums and surrounding soft tissues. We assess each individual tooth as well as record the condition of any existing fillings.
In order to reach a full understanding of your present state of your oral health, we collect information about your jaw joints, jaw muscles, your bite and examine how these three components function together in your mouth. Study models of your teeth may be made to help accomplish this. In addition to the exam, we take any necessary diagnostic x-rays and digital photos.
Before any treatment begins, we discuss your options so you can make an informed decision regarding the best course of treatment for your specific dental needs.
