An initial oral examination is the key to establishing an oral health baseline for new patients. We will begin by carefully reviewing your medical and dental histories and making special note of any dental concerns you may have or current symptoms you are experiencing. A clinical examination will then follow, including an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, an analysis of your bite. There will also be a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures, and the complete orofacial area. If necessary, we will also take diagnostic dental films during this visit.
