Making the decision to come to a dental office is a big decision and we are happy you chose Canvas Dental to work with you in getting your mouth to where you want it. The road to good oral health all starts with a comprehensive oral examination.
What to Expect
45 min – 1.5 hours
During your initial visit, we will first gather your completed medical/dental history prior to starting your appointment. We will then talk to you about what brings you to the dental office, your expectations and any fears or anxieties you may have. We value your input and make sure we hear your thoughts so we can help you feel comfortable before even getting started.
We will then proceed with the following to gather valuable information needed to properly and accurately diagnose treatment:
- Digital x-rays
- Intraoral pictures
- Soft and hard tissue examination
- TMJ evaluation
- Oral cancer screening
- Gum evaluation
- Tooth by tooth assessment
After gathering this information, we will inform you of our findings and will come up with a treatment plan together. We will make sure you understand everything and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
If your gums don’t have a serious infection and if time permits, you will also have your preventative cleaning completed during your appointment.
