Your initial consultation may be longer than a regular dental check. It is an appointment where we really get to know about your lifestyle and past medical and dental history. We will, of course, examine the head and neck structures related to the mouth before examining the mouth itself. Low radiation digital radiographs (x-rays) will be taken and other special tests may be done or ordered. Once we have all the information we need, we will present you with a diagnosis and discuss treatment options.
