Dr. Kussick offers comprehensive dental exam in Seattle.
Comprehensive dental exams are the key to oral health. It is very common for a problem to start with our teeth long before we are aware that it is occurring. In fact, pain and discomfort from your teeth, gums, or jaw joints often shows up long after the problem first started. Most often, these problems could have been treated and corrected long before they were felt, and most importantly, caused permanent damage. Regular dental exams, x-rays, and cleanings can catch most dental problems in their earliest stages, preventing pain or irreversible damage.
Every new patient to our Seattle dental office benefits from having a comprehensive dental exam completed.
During this exam we will look at every aspect of your dental health.
This exam includes includes:
- A full mouth set of x-rays as needed.
- Intraoral photographs
- An oral cancer screening and head and neck exam
- Evaluation of your periodontal health(the condition of your gums and the bone that supports your teeth),
- A careful examination of your teeth and existing restorations for decay or other problems.
During your visit will spent as much time as needed reviewing our findings with you and incorporating them into a treatment plan that suits your needs and goals.
