Comprehensive Dental Care
Approximate length of appointment: 2 hours
Why is my first comprehensive checkup appointment so long? I'm used to getting in/out in less than 30 minutes.
Answer: After taking any necessary x-rays, your dentist will:
- Review your medical health.
- Examine your dental health needs: soft tissue, temporomandibular joint, orthodontic, periodontal, restorative and prosthodontic needs (this will also include an oral cancer examination).
- Provide you with a treatment plan based on his evaluation. When applicable, our hygienist will also be completing a professional dental cleaning (prophylaxis) and providing oral hygiene instructions.
Because each patient has different needs, we want to make sure to address all your dental concerns.
