A complete evaluation will give your dentist and you a clear understanding of your current dental health, issues you may have had in the past, and an insight into how to mitigate any future dental issues. A comprehensive dental evaluation will include: i
- Evaluation for oral cancer
- Evaluation and recording of dental and medical history
- Digital photographs
- Evaluation of all teeth, existing dental work, joint and muscles
- An exam of your gum tissues to determine the best course of care for you.
A general cleaning or prophylaxis is completed for patients showing acceptable health. Patients with active or a prior history of periodontal gum disease may be reappointed to provide more advanced care, depending on the need.
