Initial Comprehensive Exam
Our family and cosmetic dentistry team is dedicated to you, the patient. The foundation of our practice begins with the initial, new patient comprehensive exam and cleaning. This is a co-discovery examination where we learn about your oral health together.
What to Expect
For your initial comprehensive exam and cleaning, we will take x-rays, along with photographs and impressions, as needed. Bite and gum evaluations, along with joint and jaw muscle exams are also included during your first visit. We want you to be happy and healthy.
One of the most important functions we provide is to use our instruments as a supplement to your brushing and flossing during cleanings. This helps deal with the effects of bacteria on your teeth and gums. Brushing and flossing only do so much.
Making You Comfortable
Our practice provides cosmetic dentistry services.
Dr. Bullard has advanced training, and would be happy to discuss your options and perform a mock-up to show you how the outcome would look, prior to deciding on any cosmetic treatment. We provide a range of cosmetic dentistry, from simple bonding to closing the gap between teeth to more complex composite or porcelain veneers.
Outside of brushing and flossing, wear from clenching and grinding is a major determinant of unhealthy and unstable teeth, but appliance therapy can help. Clenching and grinding are a large cause of broken teeth and broken dental work, and can also cause headaches and muscle tightness.
Bite Guard Benefits
A bite guard is one way the force we put on our teeth can be mitigated. For those who show signs of damage, appliance therapy, in the form of a bite guard, is recommended. A bite guard that's worn at night can be a critical factor in determining who keeps their teeth and who does not.
