Your first visit typically includes a full mouth series of x-rays which allows us to view the structure of the jaw, the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted, malformed roots, and tooth decay. We also do a full periodontal evaluation and chart all of the existing restorations in your mouth. A comprehensive exam will be performed and a treatment plan will be given to you with all treatment needed to return you to a state of oral health.
The initial visit also involves reviewing your medical history. When you share your medical history with us, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health. Inform us if you have experienced recent hospitalization or surgery, or if you have recently been ill. Also provide the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking - whether prescription or over-the-counter products - and the name of your physician. Include any changes in your health or medications. This information will help us to select the most safe and effective method of treatment for you.
