Comprehensive dental exams from Allen Dental Studio are one of your best tools for getting your mouth healthy and keeping it that way. Your initial exam as a new patient is your most intensive exam because it allows us to get an exhaustive baseline from which to work in the future. It also allows us to make sure the foundation of your smile is healthy before we begin any restorative or cosmetic work. At this, and each exam that follows, we:
- Examine your teeth
- Check the health of your oral tissue, looking for periodontal disease, oral cancer, or inflammation
- Evaluate your head, neck, sinuses, and jaw
In addition, we can screen you for sleep apnea and TMJ disorders. We always take lots of time listening and talking to you, especially at your first visit when really getting to know you and your needs is so crucial. Your medical and dental history will also be reviewed, and we can go over anything that might be worrying you or you have questions about. If we have discovered any issues that need to be dealt with, or you decide to address cosmetic concerns, we will work with you to create a custom treatment plan. These plans get you feeling better, looking great, and facing life with a smile.
