Comprehensive Exam – Your initial exam will be extensive and thorough – Dr. Shomer reviews your x-rays, examines your teeth, existing fillings, crowns, gums, bone, neck, tongue and Temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
In addition to your visual exam and x-rays, Dr. Shomer will use an instrument called the DIAGNOdent. This devise scans your teeth for sub surface and early stage decay that previously might not be detected. Early detection is the best way to preserve your teeth. Periodic exams also include these services.
Prophylaxis – light scaling and polishing.
X-Rays - We use digital radiography by Dexis, a leader in computer hard and software. Radiation is held to an absolute minimum while obtaining extremely clear images.
Fluoride Treatment – a mineral that helps prevent cavities and can repair teeth in the very early, microscopic stages of the decay. Both adults and children can benefit from a fluoride treatment which is a very simple and effective varnish application.
