What to Expect
A detailed dental check will proceed with a conversation between our dentist and the patient. We will record a history about the patient's health, including any medical history and current medications. Our dentist will talk with the patient to find out if they have became aware of any oral health changes. To get a accurate picture of the patient's mouth, our dentist will obtain digital X-rays to obtain an image of the mouth. A visual examination of the mouth with probing will also aid in finding signs of oral concerns. The probing instrument will be used to examine the strength of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and finding areas of inflammation.
If our dentists find any areas of infection during the dental examination, they will work with the him or her about possible dental procedures that may be completed at DentalWorks - Wilmington or at the patient's home. Dental well visits will be recommended so that the he or she can continue to keep up with their overall oral health.
