Your initial exam will last approximately one and a half hours. This appointment will consist of a Comprehensive Exam (a patient exam that may include interviewing the patient, observation, examination, use of specific tests that allows the dentist to diagnose existing conditions) which includes, checking each tooth individually, taking Full Mouth X-rays or Bitewing X-rays, Panoramic X-ray,and an Oral Cancer Screening.
Oral hygiene instructions will be provided along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth on this visit and provide an evaluation and radiographs that will outline your existing dental problems and proposed treatment.
If you seem to be having an issue with one tooth, we will schedule you for a “Limited -PA” , which means you will come in for an exam of the specified tooth , as well as a periapical x-ray. At this point, the dentist will diagnose which treatment would be best for you.
