What to Expect
A thorough dental exam will start with a discussion between our dentist and the patient. We will ask about the patient's health, including any current medications, illnesses or surgeries. Our dentist will ask the patient to find out if they have noticed any oral health changes. To get a complete picture of the patient's mouth, our dentist will take digital X-rays to view the teeth, gum, and bones. A visual check of the mouth with palpation will also help in checking signs of oral decay or disease. The probing tool will be used to check the condition of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and identifying areas of recession.
If our dentists find any areas of concern during the dental consultation, they will talk to the patient about possible treatment plans that may be performed at DentalWorks - Grove City or at the patient's home. Progress will be important so that the patient can continue to improve their dental health. If a patient has ongoing issues our dentists may suggest that he or she visit a oral surgeon or specialist.
