What will happen at my dental exam?
Regular dental exams are an essential part of preventive dentistry. At Phinney Ridge Dental, Dr. Micah Bickel performs comprehensive exams to determine your current oral health, diagnose any dental or periodontal conditions, and make recommendations to keep your smile looking and feeling its best.
Our comprehensive dental exams include an evaluation of the health of your gums. Since healthy gums are essential to healthy teeth, we will look for signs of gum disease and help you get back on track to good periodontal health.
Each dental exam includes a tooth-by-tooth inspection to identify conditions such as decay, cracked teeth, and excessive wear. We will make notes in your chart as we go and go over our findings with you. During this discussion, we will share your conditions as well as your treatment options and help you make a good decision when it comes to your oral health.
We focus on identifying dental conditions early, when they are easiest to treat. Our conservative and preventive approach to dentistry helps our patients achieve and maintain optimum oral health.
If you are concerned about the appearance of your smile, share your concerns with Dr. Bickel at your dental exam. We offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options to give you the beautiful, healthy smile you have always wanted.
