New patients receive a comprehensive examination which includes a screening for oral cancer, gum and bone disease, blood pressure, and systemic disorders. You will spend approximately 1 ½ hrs with us on that first visit.
A routine oral exam is performed on established patients to determine any changes in dental and health status since the previous visit.
Your gum tissue is measured with a fine instrument ruler to calibrate in millimeters pocket depth between the tooth and the connective gum tissue around the tooth. Pocket depths more than 4 millimeters could indicate disease and infection. The deeper the pocket, the greater the extent plaque bacteria collects and infection in gum disease develops.
Radiographic Images and photographs are routinely taken at that first visit.
Once the Doctors have examined all aspects of your oral health appropriately, you will be scheduled for your individual needs, such as tooth scaling and root planing and / or routine cleanings also include a professional polishing (Prophy) that removes only the soft sticky plaque that is above the gum line.
