What Can I Expect at My First Dentist Visit?
Your first appointment will involve a comprehensive exam so that Dr. Briglia can provide you with a treatment plan that addresses any problems. We’ll discuss your medical history, why you’ve come to our practice, and any general concerns you have.
Dr. Briglia will review your past dental x-rays or take new updated digital x-rays in order to diagnose any problems that cannot be seen clinically. We’ll review your past medical and dental history, and complete a clinical examination which includes a TMJ/Jaw Joint exam, an oral cancer screening, a tooth by tooth exam, a check for periodontal gum disease, and a check for bone loss around your teeth.
In addition to the services above, we will also take a series of intraoral photographs in order to have a record of your actual teeth and gums for future diagnostic and insurance purposes
