Guerrino Dentistry | Initial Oral Examination
An initial oral examination is a process where your dental health is assessed by a professional. From there, a treatment plan will be recommended according to your needs. These examinations range from visual examinations, periodontal probing, and charting to panoramic, bitewing, and posterior X-rays. All of these exams will allow our dental professionals to diagnose your current state of oral health before delivering the actual treatment recommendations.
Why Do You Need An Initial Oral Examination?
With initial oral examinations, dentists will be able to look into your dental health and check whether you are suffering from a dental condition. Visiting your dental professionals will prevent worse problems from cropping up, e.g. receding gums, loss of jaw bones, shifting teeth, tooth loss, and infected teeth. This type of oral examination also helps to relieve pain that occurs in the joints of the jaw. Seeking help as early as possible via initial oral examinations will help ensure that you will maintain not only your oral health but your overall health as well.
