New Patient Information
What to Expect on your First Visit to East Credit Dental in Mississauga
One of the most valuable services we provide for our new patients is a complete oral evaluation and development of a specialized treatment plan. During your first visit, we'll spend some time getting to know each other and your unique dental needs.
Dr. Tracogna will start by taking a complete series of radiographs, followed by a thorough examination that would include the following:
charting your present dental health (e.g. teeth location and condition, previous restorations, your bite and malocclusions such as crooked, crowded or protruding teeth)
charting your gingival (gums) health through a full periodontal probing
examining your TMJ (jaw joint) and lymph nodes
looking for habits such as clenching and grinding
screening for any dental decay, pathology and oral cancer
After your examination is complete, Dr. Tracogna will develop a personalized treatment plan just for you.
Before your initial visit, we recommend obtaining any previous dental records you may have especially any recently taken x-rays.
