Initial Exam

This examination represents the introduction of a new patient to our practice, and is more encompassing than typical prophylaxis service. It includes:

  • full mouth series of x-rays
  • full mouth periodontal probing to measure pocket depths and recession documentation
  • intra-oral photographs
  • head and neck exam
  • intra-oral cancer screening
  • a thorough clinical examination of all teeth and periodontium

Initial exams occur on specific days within the practice and can take as long as 2 hours to complete.
