This comprehensive oral evaluation and consultation focuses on learning about you, your health, and the goals you may have for your ideal smile. 2016 regulations require files to be digital, therefore all of this information is charted and kept seamlessly in our computer files, so that our X-rays, notes, periodontal charts, and evaluations are available on a quick recall. Extra time is taken to thoroughly check for oral cancers, diagnose X-rays, check your gums, and learn about your dental history. After having your X-rays updated, Dr. Kevin Wall will take a look at your gums. We use an instrument called a “periodontal probe,” which is like a tiny ruler that measures where your gum attaches to your tooth. The numbers range from 1mm- 10mm, and serves as an excellent basis on how healthy your mouth is; ideally you would like a number less than 3mm, and we do everything in our ability to keep this measurement low, and your mouth as healthy as possible. Dr. Wall is available to answer all of your questions that you may have, and from there a treatment plan is created, if necessary.
