New patients receive a comprehensive examination which may include a screening for oral cancer, gum and bone disease, blood pressure, and systemic disorders. A routine oral exam is performed on established patients to determine any changes in dental and health status since the previous visit. An emergency exam is when an oral issue arises, typically pain related, and the dentist needs to determine treatment.
Our office uses the latest in digital x-ray technology. Digital x-rays offer a much more detailed image of your tooth and/or entire mouth with only a fraction of the radiation when compared to traditional film x-rays.
An intra-oral image is different than a digital x-ray. An intra-oral image requires a hand held camera that usually looks like a pen and takes pictures inside your mouth. The image is no different than one taken by your phone or personal camera. This type of image allows Dr. Elliott to show you cracks, breaks, chips, and other concerns relating to your gums and teeth.
A panoramic x-ray is capable of providing a very detailed image of the entire mouth. This includes the teeth, jaw, sinuses and TMJ. It allows the doctor to see how everything looks and can compare how everything is working in relation to each other.
Our office provides smile makeovers to achieve the beautiful, natural look you seek. We can reshape your natural teeth to make them straighter or more youthful in appeal. Our office is easily accessible, has convenient hours, and a staff always ready to help.
