One of the unique experiences with Drs. Albritton & Ardovino is your first new patient appointment. The doctors like to meet you first and perform a thorough examination of your gums, teeth, facial muscles and TMJ. This also gives you the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have with the doctor. At this appointment we will take the necessary digital x-rays, periodontal measurements, perform a clinical exam of your gums and teeth, screen for oral cancer, and do a TMJ exam. Based on the results of your examination, we will determine what type of cleaning you will need and any restorative work that may be appropriate for your circumstances. If necessary, the doctors will take diagnostic impressions and digital photographs and schedule a follow-up consultation.
