Your first visit to Avent Ferry Family Dentistry is incredibly important, as it forms the foundation for all your future visits with our dentist and team. During your initial appointment, our dentist and team will carry out a comprehensive oral assessment. This evaluation includes a visual examination, a periodontal assessment and a precise diagnosis of your dental health. As part of the visual exam, we meticulously inspect your teeth, their surrounding supportive structures and your oral anatomy. Digital X-rays may be used to provide more detail about your oral health and to diagnose any developing problems or other concerns. We will also conduct an oral cancer screening to detect any abnormalities in oral tissues.
Our initial examination also entails a periodontal probing and evaluation, enabling us to gauge the condition of your gums and diagnose any prevailing gum diseases, such as periodontal disease. Additionally, we scrutinize your bite (occlusion) to detect any irregularities that may necessitate attention.
Following the completion of your exam, Dr. Scott Butts will take the time to discuss our findings with you. We want you to have a clear understanding of your current oral health status. If necessary, we will recommend any treatments which may be needed to address any developing issues. We will discuss all your treatment options with you so ensure you can make informed decisions about your dental care.
