What To Expect
During your first appointment at Smrecek Dentistry, our dentist and team will perform a complete oral examination, including a visual inspection, periodontal evaluation and diagnosis. As part of the visual inspection, we will closely examine your teeth, their supporting structures and the oral anatomy. We may also use digital X-rays to diagnose tooth decay, bone loss and other dental problems. We may also perform an oral cancer screening, which helps us detect any abnormalities in the oral tissues. This exam is important so that any emerging problematic issues can be detected early, when the conditions are easier to treat.
We also perform a periodontal probing and examination during your initial exam. This allows us to evaluate the health of your gums and diagnose any present gum disease (periodontal disease). In addition, we will analyze your bite (occlusion) to identify any problems.
After your examination is complete, Dr. Jaclyn Smrecek will review our findings with you so you can better understand the current state of your oral health. We will then recommend the treatments needed to correct any conditions or problems we have detected and schedule another appointment for those issues to be addressed. If necessary, we will create a customized treatment plan if you require a more extensive amount of care, combining our various dental services offered in Newport Beach, California, to reach your optimal oral health.
We encourage you to contact our office at 949-759-8606 today to learn more about your initial oral examination and schedule an appointment with our friendly team.
