Gum Disease or Periodontal Screening
Gum disease is not only the leading cause for premature tooth loss but studies indicate that bacteria from gum disease is linked to heart disease, diabetes and low birth weight babies. At every new patient exam, a complimentary periodontal pocket depth measuring (PSR) is performed. Dr. Eghtessad believes that strong gums and the supporting bone are the fundamental to maintaining good oral health.
Clenching & Grinding Evaluation
This is another complimentary feature of our new patient exam. We check all your facial muscles, joint dysfunctions and wear facet patterns to determine if you are grinding or clenching your teeth.
Intra Oral Camera Evaluation
Using a high tech intra oral camera you are given a free tour of your mouth and photos are taken to see what needs to be done.
Oral Cancer Exam
As a complimentary service to all our patients, we perform a thorough oral cancer exam to detect any suspicious lesions or areas in and around the mouth. Dr.Eghtessad believes that early detection and treatment is the key to controlling this deadly disease.
