A Comprehensive Overview of our Diagnostic Services
Whether it is your initial visit to our office or a re-care visit we will provide you a complete oral evaluation which will include an oral cancer screening. Your examination will incorporate diagnostic tools such as intra-oral x-rays, a full mouth panoramic x-ray, intra-oral photos and palpitation of your tissues and TMJ. Besides gathering information to document your current status, we will ask you questions regarding your dental and medical history. We believe it is vital for you to be an active participant in your own oral health.
When we examine your mouth, we will look for signs of periodontal disease, tooth decay, infections and any problems with your bite. It is important to monitor your mouth regularly, as dental problems can grow quickly. Some health issues can contribute to your oral conditions, and some oral conditions can complicate medical conditions such as diabetes and heart problems. Regular dental exams are an important part of your overall health.
