A thorough dental exam will start with a discussion between our dentist and the patient. Our dentist will ask about the patient's health, including any current medications, illnesses or surgeries. Our dentist will ask the patient to find out if they have noticed any areas of concern. To get a complete picture of the individual's mouth, our dentist will take digital X-rays to view the teeth, gum, and bones.

The probing tool will be used to check the condition of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and identifying areas of recession.

Progress will be important so that the patient can continue to improve their dental health. If a patient has ongoing issues our dentists may suggest that he or she visit a oral surgeon or specialist.
