First Visit: Comprehensive Exam
Your comfort and quality care are a top priority at Blue Heron Dentistry. A comprehensive exam during your first visit is performed with state-of-the-art dental technologies and skilled training safely, which effectively address a wide range of specialized dental care treatments.
Your dental and overall health matter. It is why Dr. Maze, Dr. Rob and the Blue Heron Dentistry staff take the time to get to know you at your very first visit. In 2 hours, together we will review your health history and perform a comprehensive exam, which includes the following:
Digital Radiographs: Reduced Radiation, Better Images
Digital X-rays provide sharp, clear images right on our computer screen in real time, requiring just a fraction of radiation compared to traditional X-ray films. We explain your diagnosis and show you the problem immediately.
View Your Teeth Real-Time with the Dentist
Intra-oral cameras allow you to see images of your teeth projected onto a monitor. The dentist will explain the condition of your mouth, any areas of concern for cavities or wear, and treatment or preventive strategies, so you can take an active role in your dental health care.
Detect Hidden Tooth Decay
Diagnodent Laser detects hidden tooth decay earlier with state-of-the-art laser technology.
A detailed examination of your gums and care recommendations are an important part of the comprehensive exam.
Oral Cancer Screening
We examine all the soft tissues of the mouth, including the tongue and the floor of the mouth, as well as the lymph nodes surrounding the oral cavity and in the neck.
Dr. Maze checks for any abnormalities in the bite, jaw or associated muscles, which could contribute to pain, headaches and wearing down or damaging teeth.
Spot Imperfections Invisible to the Naked Eye
High definition loops (glasses) enable us to spot imperfections in teeth that would not be visible to the naked eye.
Depending on what we learn during the comprehensive exam, we will review findings at that time. If additional analyses are needed, we will schedule a follow up review appointment.
Come enjoy the relaxing, beautiful atmosphere of our new office, where our caring staff has a true interest in YOU!
It is our goal to make you feel like family. That is why we are here. This is what we do.
