Comprehensive Exam

After reviewing your dental health history, our dentist will perform a comprehensive exam to study the state of your dental health and hygiene. An important part of the comprehensive exam is the cleaning. The teeth and mouth are thoroughly cleaned before moving onto the x-rays so that there are no extra particles in your mouth at that time.

Our dentist will carefully look for any sensitivity, decay and redness around the gums and teeth during the examination. While they will review your health and dental history forms, our dentist will still ask you questions throughout the entire examination. This process allows them to gain the most detail regarding the state of your oral health.

X-Ray

After conducting the comprehensive exam, our dentist will take x-rays of your mouth to view non-visible areas of the mouth. These scans are taken to better analyze oral disruptions, diseases and cavities. The panoramic radiographs are the most common types of dental X-rays as they provide a more detailed view of the teeth and jaw. Such resolution allows our dentist to spot any impacted teeth or jaw fractures with ease.

Post-Examination Discussion

After the dental exam, our dentist will discuss your results with you. They will guide you through any of the irregularities or decay that were found. From here, our dentist will suggest and explain to you the most appropriate and detailed treatment plan for your specific needs and customize it to fit your requirements. You will also receive the total cost of the particular procedure and can discuss a payment plan accordingly.

Follow-Up Appointment

Once you have met with our dentist and discussed possible treatments, a follow-up session will be arranged for you according to your availability. During these follow-up sessions, your teeth will be cleaned and prepared for any forthcoming treatments.

It is highly recommended that you visit our clinic for at least two follow-up sessions within a single year. Such frequency will help prevent the development of oral diseases, tooth decay and cavities. Over the course of these follow-up visits, teeth cleaning and further treatment are performed to keep your teeth in their best condition.

At Neibauer Dental Care in Fredericksburg, Virginia, we strive to offer each of our patients a satisfactory visit, from start to finish.
