Functional Dental Exam

Here's what you can expect during a functional dental exam

1. Detailed Health History Review:

We begin with an in-depth review of your medical and dental history. This includes discussing any current medications, past surgeries, and your overall health. Understanding your health history helps us tailor our dental care to your unique needs.


2. Oral Examination:

Our dental experts conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth. This includes looking for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. We also assess your jaw alignment, bite, and the overall structure of your oral cavity.


3. Saliva and Microbiome Analysis:

Salivary testing is a key component of our exam. It helps us understand the balance of bacteria in your mouth and can indicate broader health issues. This non-invasive test provides valuable insights into your oral and systemic health.


4. Nutritional Assessment:

Nutrition plays a crucial role in oral health. We evaluate your dietary habits to identify any nutritional deficiencies or patterns that might be impacting your dental health.


5. Lifestyle and Environmental Factors:

We consider factors like stress, sleep patterns, and environmental influences that could affect your oral health. This holistic view helps us understand the bigger picture of your health and lifestyle.


6. Personalized Treatment Plan:

Based on our findings, we create a personalized treatment plan. This may include traditional dental treatments, dietary recommendations, or other lifestyle adjustments to improve your oral and overall health.


7. Education and Prevention:

Our goal is to empower you with knowledge. We provide education on oral hygiene practices, the importance of nutrition, and tips for a healthier lifestyle, ensuring you have the tools to maintain optimal oral health.


8. Follow-Up and Ongoing Care:

We believe in building lasting relationships with our patients. Regular follow-ups and ongoing care are essential parts of our approach to ensure your oral health remains in excellent condition.
