Comprehensive Examination

After reviewing your dental health history, our dentist will examine your gums, teeth and mouth. This procedure is known as a comprehensive exam through which our dentist will observe 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.

X-Rays

After conducting the comprehensive exam, our dentist will take x-rays of your mouth to gain a clear picture of the status of your teeth and jaw. These scans are taken to better analyze oral disruptions, diseases and cavities. The x-rays are suggested to be performed either when there is a severe problem or part of your routine checkups. After the procedure, the x-rays will be stored in your file for future reference.

Post-Examination Meeting

Once the initial dental check-up is completed, our dentist will discuss the results with you. They will explain any findings, such as irregularities or decay in your mouth, outline your overall oral health. From here, our dentist will suggest the most appropriate and detailed treatment plan for your specific needs, customized to your requirements and your dental issues. You may also discuss payment options at this time. 

Follow-Up Appointment

After meeting our dentist and discussing possible dental treatments in detail, we will schedule a follow-up session at your convenience. These follow-up sessions will be mostly for cleaning and preparing your teeth for the upcoming procedures.

We suggest visiting our office twice a year to prevent any cavities, tooth decay or any other oral health issue. During these routine checkups, the teeth are usually cleaned and treated to ensure that they remain in good shape. In addition, during these routine checkups, our dentist can track your oral health condition and work on any preventive procedure to maintain your oral health.

Our staff at Neibauer Dental Care - Centreville also provides smile reminders so that you never miss a session.  We will gladly send either an email or text message to remind you of your appointment. We understand about busy schedules and we want to provide the best service for your oral health needs
