Comprehensive Examination

Experience 5-Star Patient Care at Tri-City Dental Care

The first order of business for one of Tri City Dental Care new patients or any patient who hasn’t visited the practice recently is to have a comprehensive examination by one of our dentists. These examinations will allow the dentist to have an accurate idea of the state of your dental health, beyond a typical cleaning, and see if there are any issues that need to be addressed. During the examination, your dentist will:

  • Check tooth alignment and bite
  • Take initial x-rays
  • Examination of gums and soft tissue
  • Inspect teeth for cavities or other damages
  • Search for signs of periodontal disease
  • Look for other diseases or potential issues

A comprehensive examination is the best way for your dentist to thoroughly ensure you have a healthy mouth and set of teeth. Comfort is a clear priority during the examination, and the entire process typically is finished in well under an hour. Be sure to ask about a comprehensive examination during your next visit!
