What to Expect For Your First Visit
Once it is time for your appointment, you will be welcomed into our dental operatory where your dentist can meet you, have a chat about what brought you in to see us. If the matter is urgent, we will aim to find a solution on the same day, if possible.
At your visit, we will perform an exam including bite analysis, jaw joint evaluation, oral cancer screening, gum (periodontal) status, and recording your existing dental work including the presence of fillings, crowns, implants, dentures, and visible decay, infection, cracks, wear, and broken teeth. We will also obtain any necessary imaging such as X-rays and intra-oral photographs in order to assess what cannot be easily seen with the naked eye, including the presence of dental decay in between teeth, the margins of fillings and crowns, infection in the jaw, and the health of the sinuses and jawbones and presence of cysts and pathology. Finally, we will perform an intra-oral scan to let us view your teeth in 3D on our monitors.
