What to Expect During Your First Examination

During your first visit, you will be given an oral examination in order to determine the current condition of your teeth, gums, and mouth. Included in this exam is an overview of any restorations you have had such as filings, crowns, and/or bridges. Based upon this examination, our team will determine the next steps of your personalized treatment plan. This could include a simple routine checkup six months later, or a specific procedure in order to help you achieve better oral health.
