Your dental exam is an opportunity for our team to closely evaluate your oral health, and talk to you about any changes or discomfort you may be experiencing. By scheduling your preventative dental visits every six months, your doctor can often identify dental disease, such as cavities, cracked teeth, and periodontal (gum) disease, in the earliest stages when treatment can be minimal and less costly.
Because we are interested in your total health, our comprehensive exams might include:
Complimentary blood pressure screening
Comprehensive medical history review
Oral cancer screening
Comprehensive dental records
Cosmetic dental consultation
Treatment consultation, if needed
Once your dental exam is complete, your doctor will discuss his findings and share the treatment options available. The information they share helps our patients make the most informed choices, and we reserve ample time to answer any questions you may have.
Nothing beats that smooth, fresh feeling you have after a professional cleaning, and our hygienists are here to customize your preventative appointment to help you maintain healthy teeth, gums, and total oral health for a lifetime. A periodontal evaluation will determine any areas of infection that need more specialized attention. If gum disease is present, our hygiene team and doctor will recommend a thorough in-office as well as at-home periodontal care regimen for you.
Treating gum disease is essential because it not only impacts your dental health and smile, but your overall health and well being. Research has also shown an oral-systemic connection between the bacteria found in gum disease to complications such as heart health, diabetes, respiratory disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and even Alzheimer’s disease. Keeping your mouth healthy is essential for optimum overall health.
We are focused and committed on maintaining the highest standard of care and using the best materials available in dentistry. Each of our doctors take hundreds of hours of comprehensive continuing education each year to remain at the forefront of modern dental technology and trends.
