Exams help us craft your individual treatment plan. Our diagnostic services range from comprehensive, periodic, and emergency dental exams.
Dr. Hale and his team will carefully evaluate your mouth by doing examinations and testing. This typically occurs during your first appointment and during routine dental check-ups. The diagnostic part involves high-technology tools such as digital dental radiography or x-rays. Each of these tools assists the dentist in detecting cavities, areas of weakness, or potential areas of infection.
We may also take another X-ray called a Panoramic. It is done to view a broad picture of the entire mouth. This assists the dentist in identifying the bone structure of the head and neck. It is also used to screen for various pathologies or tumors. Dr. Hale will review the X-rays thoroughly at your appointment. It is best to be examined regularly to prevent problems as well as treating them before they become a larger issue. The best and most affordable dentistry is preventive.
