During your first visit you will be introduced to the office through our Comprehensive Oral Examination. This process is important because this is when we learn all about your oral health so we can create the best dental plan to help improve your smile!
We go over your medical and dental health history, as well as answer any of your questions. The next phase of your first visit is to complete a number of steps that will help us determine the current state of your oral health. These steps include:
- Dental X-rays
- Digital Pictures of your mouth
- Examination of your jaw joints & associated muscles
- Examination of your cheeks, tongue, and gums
- Oral Cancer Screening
After all this information is collected, we perform a preliminary assessment. Our goal is to be able to complete a dental cleaning during this appointment, but if you have severe periodontal disease (gum disease), we will recommend to schedule another appointment for a more thorough cleaning. Contact the Duren & Marsh team to schedule your first visits or schedule it online! We are looking forward to seeing you.
