extra oral and intra oral soft tissue exam (oral cancer screening)
full periodontal exam (gum measurements for pocket depth, recession and inflammation)
examination of your teeth (we look for cavities, check previous dental work, check for any signs of premature wear, acid erosion, bite problems etc.)
a personalized risk assessment in four areas will be discussed with you (gum and bone, teeth, bite and jaw joint, and aesthetics)
recommendations for preventing future potential dental problems
customized home care plan
If we just came in at the end of your cleaning appointment and did a 5-10 minute check up, we would not have enough time to get to know you and your teeth. We don’t want to miss anything, especially if a simple change in your oral hygiene routine or lifestyle could prevent future costly dental treatment.
