What to Expect
An initial exam is a comprehensive dental examination. That's just the beginning. The exam also includes checking for gum disease, evaluating your risk of developing other oral problems and checking your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities.
A dental exam is a good way to take care of your teeth, but the process can be scary for patients who are new to the practice. From knowing what to expect before, during, and after the appointment, exams are easier to handle when you know what's coming.
We invite you to ask questions at any time.
