Comprehensive Exam and Radiographs
Evaluating your entire masticatory system (teeth, jaws, soft tissue, head and neck) is essential for arriving at a complete diagnosis with treatment recommendations.
During this exam we collect data, which will allow us to determine your level of gum disease, tooth decay, tooth trauma, TMJ health, occlusion and oral cancer screen. Radiographs are a critical part of this examination as they allow us to evaluate your jawbones, sinus cavities and the two-thirds of the tooth that cannot be seen in the mouth!
While we encourage all our new patients to have a comprehensive examination, if you are in pain we will do site specific exams to diagnose and treat the source of your discomfort.
