Your first exam is designed to not only evaluate your oral health, but also to help you get to know our team, and for us to understand your goals for your smile.
At your initial full exam, you should plan on spending about 90 minutes in our Parsippany, NJ dental office. While it may seem like a long time, it’s important to remember that we need a full picture of your oral health to provide you with the exceptional dentistry you deserve.
We will start with a full set of x-rays, photos, Spectra caries detection, VELscope oral cancer detection, periodontal charting to identify infection, a gentle, yet thorough teeth cleaning, and a comprehensive exam with your dentist. Your exam will include a tooth-by-tooth inspection to look for decay, cracks, or uneven wear patterns. We will also discuss ay sleep-related issues like TMD or sleep apnea.
At this appointment, we will discuss any future treatment or areas that require your attention.
This first exam will establish you as a patient and help us get acquainted. We want you to feel at home while you are with us. If there is anything we can do to make you more comfortable, don’t hesitate to ask.
