During your first appointment at our office, our dentist will perform a complete oral examination, including:
As part of the visual exam, we will closely examine your teeth, their supporting structures, and the oral anatomy.
Dentist will take photos using intra oral camera to show your dental problems closely on a TV screen (cavities, calculi deposits, cracked tooth/filling).
These photographs will enable you to assess the success of the treatment by comparing before and after treatment photos.
We also use digital X-rays to diagnose tooth decay(caries/cavities), bone loss, and other dental problems.
With the aid of visual/intra-oral camera examination and X ray analysis, we will evaluate any problems you may have in your teeth.
In addition an evaluation will be conducted on the health of your gums.
Another key aspect we look at is the analysis of your bite and the health of the inner lining of your mouth (oral mucosal problems).
For a particular tooth with symptoms, the dentist will carry out further tests as required.
