We start by taking a series of images and measurements to visually assess your oral health:
• Panoramic radiograph, which provides a full view of your mouth • Specific X-Rays to assess your unique needs, while minimizing radiation • Gum measurements to determine gum health • Intral-oral photographs for external visual assessment
After the assessment has been made, your dentist will discuss your oral health goals with you and then conduct an exam, noting areas requiring treatment. From there, your dentist and a team member will work to develop a treatment plan that works backwards from your goals and oral health needs.
In some cases your dentist may require you return for a second visit to take advanced records of your jaw joints and alignment.
