Your initial comprehensive exam with your general dentist in Chicago will take about two hours to complete so we can do a thorough assessment of your oral health. We’ll take some high-tech digital x-rays before conducting an oral cancer screening using our VELscope technology. We’ll also complete an:
- Occlusal (bite) checkup
- Periodontal (gums) checkup
- Extraoral examination
At your first comprehensive exam, we’ll also go over your medical history and get a chance to speak with you one-on-one for a review of your oral health needs and goals. With regular exams and dental hygiene visits, we can monitor your mouth for signs of progress and for any dental issues that could affect your health in the future.
Every six months, you’ll want to schedule a visit with us. We’ll use our state-of-the-art technology and in-depth training to assess your smile for any changes since your last visit to the office. Regular comprehensive examinations and oral hygiene visits are important to the conservative style of dentistry we believe in. As your trusted general dentist in Chicago, our goal is to do all that we can to preserve and protect your natural teeth from damage and decay. We want you to help your smile stay as healthy and intact for as long as we possibly can.
