Study models are taken to evaluate your bite, and assess whether your teeth are in need of adjustment. A complete series of digital x-rays and intraoral photographs is taken, including a panoramic view of the entire jaw, allowing us to examine bone density, wisdom teeth, and other aspects that are not visible on regular x-rays. Periodontal measurements are taken on every tooth and recorded in our digital system. Bacterial samples are taken from the surface of the gingival tissues, and examined under a microscope while you watch the activity live on a monitor. This visual tool helps to understand the active role bacteria plays in your overall health.
This diagnostic evaluation is followed by an thorough cleaning, irrigation, and fluoride treatment. The hygienist will review home care instructions and demonstrate optimal brushing and flossing techniques. You will receive complimentary oral hygiene aids such as toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash to assist you with your home care.
