What to expect at your initial restorative appointment

Comprehensive Exam

During your comprehensive oral health examination, often referred to as a “full mouth exam,” our experienced dentist will conduct a thorough assessment of your teeth and gums. Beyond that, we will also screen you for potential issues like oral cancer, periodontal disease, tooth decay, and any other factors that may impact your oral health. This comprehensive evaluation allows us to understand your unique dental needs and identify any existing problems. After completing the examination, we will sit down with you to discuss your oral health goals and concerns. This discussion is the foundation of crafting a personalized treatment plan designed for you.

We understand that every smile is unique, and no two treatment plans should be the same. Hence, we are committed to providing you with a range of treatment options tailored to address your specific dental needs.

We believe that an informed decision is the best decision, so we will answer any questions you may have, ensuring you feel confident and comfortable with your chosen treatment.
