Preventive Dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. There are many forms of Preventive Dentistry, such as daily brushing and dental cleanings.
Initial Comprehensive Dental Exam
Our initial exam includes: A complete review of your medical/dental history, including documentation of all current conditions and medications; oral cancer screening, both visually and digitally (using the fingers), checking lips, tongue and the insides of your mouth and cheeks; X-rays that provide a comprehensive view of your teeth and condition of the bone surrounding your teeth; checking for any signs of periodontal disease and gingivitis; checking for bite problems (underbite, overbite, crossbite), worn teeth, or jaw problems; a thorough tooth-by-tooth examination for cavities, cracks, chipped teeth, and evaluation of prior treatment and restorations, culminating with a plan for further treatment that is customized just for you.
