First Dental Visit
Your comfort and safety on your first visit are very important to us at Portside Dentistry. Here we explain what you can expect on your first dental visit with our highly-experienced dentist Dr. Noor Khedraki.
First Dental Visit Examination
We will give you a very thorough examination, as follows:
- Diagnostic X-rays – Essential in detecting and diagnosis of tooth decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
- Gum Disease Evaluation – We check the gums and bones around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
- Examination For Tooth Decay – All tooth surfaces will be checked for tooth decay using special dental instruments.
- Examination of Prior Dental Work – We conduct a thorough examination of all your existing fillings, crowns, bridgework, dentures or other dental materials.
We will inform you of what we find, answer all your questions, and explain your options for any proposed treatment. Our goal is to help you take care of your teeth and preserve them for life.
