At your first appointment a thorough examination of your mouth takes place, including head and neck cancer screening, temporomandibular joint examination, detailed examination of the teeth, soft tissue, supporting structures, alignment, bite and more. A complete set of digital x-rays are taken and if necessary, models of your mouth are made.
Based upon your periodontal health, you may receive a standard cleaning or be given a subsequent appointment for a more extensive cleaning by our licensed dental hygienist. She will educate you to the latest theories and techniques for controlling dental disease.
All of the information gathered is compiled and evaluated, Dr, Hagopian will discuss your medical and dental history, your expectations of our services as well as our philosophy of practice. A treatment plan is drawn to not only address your immediate needs, but to achieve long-term dental health also.
All options with cost estimates are discussed. We believe in firm mutual understanding as a basis for successful treatment.
