Your goal for your first appointment is to help us determine what treatment you need and whether we should start now or wait until a later time. Dr. Dietrich will prescribe treatment when necessary, never before.
Our procedure starts by taking a set of photographs of the teeth in their present state, the profile and the smile. Next, we’ll take a series of digital X-ray images.
These enable us to see what’s going on underneath the gums: the position and growth of bones and joints, and the teeth that are still below the gum line.
After that, it’s time for the exam. You’ll meet Dr. Dietrich, who will look at the X-rays and photos, and perform a quick, yet careful and thorough first examination. Besides looking in your mouth, he’ll ask you some questions.
