New Patient Experience
Our New Patient Experience has proven to be very beneficial for our new patients. Studio B Dental.com’s New Patient Experience includes 5-point comprehensive exam, which encompasses multiple aspects of assessment. We have found that this exam is the best way to properly prepare and educate patients regarding their current oral health so that they can make informed decisions regarding treatment.
1. Oral Cancer Screening
An oral cancer screening can help find cancer at an early stage, which can make it easier to treat. Screening tests are given even when a person has no cancer symptoms, because often by the time symptoms appear the cancer has already begun to spread. During the screening, we will look for abnormalities in the oral cavity that may indicate that further testing is required.
2. Tooth-by-Tooth Exam
There are three ways that you can lose your teeth: decay and broken fillings, gum disease, or problems with bite. The tooth-by-tooth exam will take a close look at the condition of each tooth. We will chart our findings and then explain and address everything once the exam is completed.
3. Gum & Bone Exam (Periodontal Exam)
The Gum and Bone, or periodontal, Exam involves simple but very important measurements of your gums with a special measuring tool. This helps us identify any areas of infection and/or bleeding. We will also identify areas of moderate bone loss around teeth.
4. Bite Exam
Many dentists do not check the health of your bite, when in truth the way that your teeth fit together affects your teeth in many ways. Our doctor will complete a TMJ and muscle examination in order to assess the range of opening, wear and other important factors of your bite.
5. Cosmetic & Implant Exam
The cosmetic and implant exam will give you the opportunity to assess the colour, shape, and alignment of your teeth. We will address the aesthetics of your smile and learn what you would like to achieve with treatment. We will present to you the various treatment options available to you and discuss the benefits of each.
