All new patients coming to Johnson Family Dental Clinic receive a thorough dental exam. The evaluation determines the current condition of your teeth and the health of your gum tissue, other supporting tissues and finally the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). If your first visit is the result of a dental emergency, we will address your chief concern first. You subsequent visit will include a comprehensive dental evaluation of your entire oral health system.
Our comprehensive look at your oral health gives us a baseline on which we can make future measurements and comparisons. This gives us a complete and clear picture of your oral health today, and provides a road map for where you’re heading.
Modern dentistry offers so many opportunities to enhance your health, comfort and appearance; and our evaluation reveals which treatments would benefit you.
The dental profession leads the health care industry in promoting preventative care. We understand that a healthy mouth helps ensure a healthy body. We continually discuss and encourage prevention with our patients. Prevention includes home care, check-ups, cleanings, and fluoride treatments. It also means working with you to determine the correct filling, crown or veneer, and if necessary, protecting the teeth or jaw joints with a night guard or a bite adjustment. All of these methods can be employed in a combined effort to create a beautiful smile that is natural-looking and functional.
Each type of treatment we perform at Johnson Family Dentistry is done to establish a healthy mouth that enhances general health and prevents future disease.
