We examine your mouth for signs of the big three; decay, gum disease, and bite problems. Using intra-oral cameras, 35mm digital pictures, study models and over twenty years of experience, we examine your mouth for the big three and any other oral problems that are present.We then formulate a plan to help you solve any problems we find. We concentrate on teaching you how to control your dental problems first! We believe that treating teeth, gums, and bite problems without learning how to prevent them from recurring is futile. You need to learn how to stop dental problems from coming back before you spend any more of your hard earned money repairing the damage that has already been caused by the big three. Many dental practices skip over the prevention and go straight to the repairing! This cannot and does not work!
The completion of the examination process involves deciding what needs to be done to solve all the problems we find. We usually start with the most immediate, painful problems and go forward to the more complex, long-term solutions.
Your treatment is as individual as you are. If you are free of all dental problems, congratulations! Your current habits and practices are creating success. Keep up the good work! If you have a number of problems, let's begin with the end in mind and create a plan to solve your problems in a reasonable affordable manner. Our goal is for every visit to improve your dental health.
In summary, our examination process is designed to achieve three goals.
First, we want to educate you concerning the present state of your dental health and discover what goals you have for your mouth.
Second, we want to educate you concerning the causes of your dental disease (if any disease is present) and teach you how to prevent future problems.
Lastly, we want to formulate a plan to enable you to solve any problems you may have in a suitable time period.
