What to Expect
An in-depth dental examination will begin with a consultation between our dentist and the patient. Our dentist will enquire about the patient's health, including any current conditions or medical problems. Our dentist will discuss with the patient to find out if they have experienced any areas of concern. To get a detailed picture of the individual's mouth, our dentist will produce digital X-rays to see the bone structure, teeth, and gums. A visual exam of the mouth with touch will also assist in diagnosing signs of oral decay, cancerous conditions, or disease. The probing device will be used to inspect the health of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and looking for areas of infection.
If our dentists find any areas of worry during the dental exam, they will discuss with the individual about possible preventative measures that may be conducted at DentalWorks - Fort Mill or at the patient's home.
