Your first visit with us will most likely be a complete dental exam and cleaning. During the exam we will take x-rays to check for cavities. We will also check the tissue around your teeth for “gum” disease called periodontitis.
Did you know that 1 out of every 2 Americans suffers from gum disease? Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss and is strongly associated with other chronic conditions, including diabetes and heart disease.
Gum disease is often silent, meaning you may not have any pain until it has reached an advanced stage. It is very important to be evaluated for this condition
Other things we evaluate during your exam and cleaning:
If you need treatment, we will do our best to create a plan that works for you. It is our job to educate you on all of your options and let you decide what you want to do.
We look forward to serving your dental needs!
