Dental Cleaning and Dental Exam Process
Dr. Tocci takes a total-health approach to your routine dental checkups, so you can expect your dental cleanings and dental exams to be different from a basic dental appointment elsewhere.
Step #1 – Your dental appointment will begin like a doctor’s visit. We’ll check your blood pressure and temperature, gather a full medical history, and then take digital X-rays.
Your dental hygienist will ensure that your teeth are completely clean and that any signs of a potential issue are noted for Dr. Tocci.
Step #2 – Dr. Tocci does an examination that is more comprehensive than you’re probably used to. Here are some of the services you can expect during your exam:
- Soft Tissue Oral Exam
- Periodontal Exam
- VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
- OralDNA Saliva Testing (as needed)
After this, your results are either discussed with you during your visit or at a later date if the results are not immediately available. Our staff will make sure you are fully aware of what is going on with your oral health.
