What to Expect at Your New Patient Exam
Your dentist will perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums and soft tissue. He will provide you with a detailed assessment of your oral health. He will also complete an oral cancer screening as well as a review of your medical and dental history.
This is an ideal time to discuss any concerns you have about your smile or any cosmetic changes you are considering. Your dentist can provide you with all of your options and explain the risks and benefits of each service so that you can make an informed decision about your treatment.
A full set of x-rays will be taken to provide our cosmetic dentist with a comprehensive view of your oral health. Your dentist may also take digital images of the inside of your mouth with an intraoral camera, a small pen-shaped camera that transfers images to a computer monitor in the room, allowing you to see what the doctor sees.
