You’ll be introduced to one of our dentists and given a comprehensive oral exam to check for any signs of gum disease and tooth decay. Your hygienist will take x-rays of all your teeth, screen your hard and soft tissues for any signs of trouble, and examine your bite. After your exam, the dentist will talk to you about how she sees things generally and any particular problems she notices. Once she’s confident that the two of you are on the same page, she’ll create a treatment plan. That is our roadmap for you to reach ideal oral health. We’ll work with your schedule to set up appointments to complete your treatment with that roadmap.
