There will be a few forms to fill out so that we can get to know you better. You should plan to bring your identification and insurance information and if you currently take any medication or supplements, make a list to ensure that you remember them all.
Evaluation and Consultation
Our experts will perform an evaluation of your teeth, gums, and bone. We will probe the periodontal tissue to assess pocket depth and perform any necessary screenings.
Our doctors may review your medical and dental records with you, and also discuss any smile related concerns or goals you may have.
X-rays will be taken so that we may have a comprehensive view of your bone, nerve, and sinus cavity. As we are dedicated to your overall health, we are conservative with the number of x-rays that we take and will never run unnecessary tests or radiographs. Common x-rays taken include bitewings, periapicals, panoramics, and CT scans:
- Bitewings enhance our view of your teeth.
- Periapicals focus on bone health.
- Panoramics fully represent the sinuses, upper jaw, and lower jaw.
- CT Scans in-house offer us a more in-depth look at certain areas.
