Your first visit to Monk Dental center will probably include a complete dental exam. It is during this appointment that you will talk to your dentist in a relaxed atmosphere about your general dental history, your goals and other dental or general health problems you may have.
The complete dental exam is also an opportunity for you to meet our team. We want you to feel confident that you have the best team of dental professionals behind you to achieve the results you seek. We believe that by taking the time to understand your oral health status and goals, we can better serve and educate our patients.
A complete medical and dental history will be taken with each new patient. We will discuss your main concerns, as well as your previous dental experiences and dental health goals.
A complete series of oral and panoramic x-rays are usually taken. Oral x-rays show each individual tooth, which allows us to diagnose any pathology associated with your teeth and supporting bone structure while panoramic x-rays show the structures of the mouth, sinuses, as well as the shape of the upper and lower jaw. If necessary, additional x-rays may be required to diagnose specific dental problems more accurately.
A functional temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is necessary for the long-term stability of your mouth. A detailed palpation of the facial and neck muscles and the TMJ will also be performed during your dental exam. At the same time, we will check your lips, tongue, throat, and gums to detect any potential problems and we will discuss with you any relevant findings.
At Monk Dental center, we make sure that you always have enough time during your appointment to get answers to all your questions. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your visit. We encourage curiosity, questions and are proud to help our patients achieve superior dental health and radiant smiles.
