Comprehensive dental exams from Meyer Family Dentistry set the stage for a lifetime of oral health. This is the way we establish a baseline, look for minor or hidden issues, and uncover any major problems you or your family members may be dealing with. Your first comprehensive exam with us is the most important, but we encourage our patients to keep up with a yearly exam during their cleanings to ensure that no trouble is brewing. It is always best to prevent problems before they start or find them while they are minor and easier to treat to save both your teeth and your budget! During our comprehensive exams, we not only examine your teeth, we also check the health of your oral tissue, checking for periodontal disease, oral cancer, or inflammation.
In addition, we can screen you for sleep apnea, and TMJ disorders. All of our records are kept electronically for easy access at your next visit. This also allows us to easily share our findings with you showing you your x-rays or intra-oral camera findings so we can clearly communicate to you what we believe is needed. It’s one of the most convenient ways to collaborate with our patients, clearly answer any questions you may have, and co-develop a treatment plan. It all adds up to a healthier mouth – and a healthier you – for the long term.
