Our practice prides itself in offering the highest level of dental care to our patients, and the first step towards accomplishing this is known as a comprehensive dental examination. The comprehensive exam is a thorough evaluation of your oral health and is more in depth than a routine checkup, and thus often takes more time to complete. It involves Dr. Berdy conducting a full exam of your muscles, joints, bite, teeth, gums, and other oral tissues. This allows us to not only determine your critical immediate needs, but to evaluate and plan for your long term care as well.
What is involved in a comprehensive exam?
- Pre-clinical exam: health and dental history, radiographic images
- Extraoral exam: muscles, joints
- Intraoral exam: teeth, gums, tissues
After the exam, a list of recommended treatment will be provided based upon each patients unique needs to reach an optimal level of oral health.
