I recently had an exam and cleaning of my teeth and all the staff were so welcoming and friendly. They made me feel at ease with the procedures and talked me through everything. I would highly recommend this dental office. – Gina Zepeda Beasley

During your dental appointment, our trusted La Mesa dentists will first make an assessment of the current conditions your mouth and teeth are in. From this assessment the dentist will see if your teeth and gums are healthy, satisfactory and poor. A good assessment is always preceded by a dental exam.

Dental Exams

  • Oral exams will include visual inspection, palpation, percussion and thermal tests (when deemed necessary by the dentist)
  • Dental photographs will help properly visualize the condition of your mouth and for record purposes, dental photographs will be taken showing the teeth, the tongue and the face of the patient.
  • Dental casts are three-dimensional representations of what your dentist can see inside your mouth. Created by taking an impression of your upper and lower jaw, the impression is poured with cement then hardened into a perfect mould.
  • Dental radiographs is done when a more definitive assessment of your teeth’s condition is required. Radiographs will give a picture of the inner layers of your teeth and bone.
