Health history is essential. Evaluating your medical history allows our dentist to get a better understanding of your dental care needs.
All first-time patients have to undergo a comprehensive exam. The more detail you provide, the easier it is for our dentist to get to the root of the problem. A comprehensive exam allows our dentist to set a solid course of action to intervene the problem. Feel comfortable sharing any questions or concerns you may have with our dentist. The comprehensive exam also includes an examination of your teeth and gums.
X-rays are a way of diagnosing problems that can otherwise go unnoticed. Tooth decay, abscess, impacted teeth, or jawbone damage will all be visible on an x-ray. The details x-rays provide could make all the difference for your overall oral hygiene.
Our dentist may recommend a panoramic radiograph. The imaging provided through the panoramic x-ray provides a complete image of your jaws. This helps in pinpointing any damage that tooth decay may have caused to the jaws.
Once the comprehensive exam and x-rays are done, our dentist will provide you with solutions to your dental irregularities. Through a comprehensive treatment dental plan, our dentist can resolve the issues that affect your oral hygiene. Since each treatment plan is developed based on your specific needs, it’s imperative that you are clear about your expectations from the start.
To ensure a healthy lifestyle, pay attention to your oral hygiene. By going for your first appointment with our dentist, you are taking control. Take the right course of action and opt for our dentist at Bigelow Family Dentistry in Scottsboro Alabama
