The American Dental Association (ADA) has recently stated that over 70 percent of needed dentistry is unfelt by the patient. What does this mean? The majority of the time a dental issue may be going on inside of your mouth, and you may not even be aware of it. Your dental exams are essential to ensure that these small, silent problems don’t become bothersome at inopportune times.
At Gallant Dental Group, we recommend a routine dental exam twice a year to ensure that your dental problems and needs don’t go undiagnosed. During each of your hygiene visits, we reserve time for you to speak with the doctor to review any concerns you may have, address your dental needs, and have all of your questions answered.
Individualized Dental Exam
Dr. Richie Gallant takes the time to examine each patient following their dental cleaning. After you have had time to discuss your dental concerns and questions with our highly qualified hygienists, he will take the time to thoroughly explain to you what is going on in your mouth.
Each exam is individualized and tailored to your specific needs. Included in your dental exam are a free head and neck cancer screening, an evaluation of your TMJ, or jaw joint, and a comprehensive presentation of treatment or maintenance recommendations.
Intraoral Camera and Digital Imaging
We are pleased to offer the latest in digital imaging and utilize an intraoral camera in our office. With this modern technology, Dr. Gallant can do more than just describe for you what is going on in your mouth; he can show it to you as well.
Our office is proud to offer the CarieVu diagnostic aid to all of our patients. This technology uses LED illumination to help us detect small cracks or cavities that are difficult to diagnose on X-rays. This instrument is just one of the many modern ways in which we cater to our patient's dental needs.
Instead of merely providing a checklist of dental problems, Dr. Gallant will take the time to show and describe for you all of his treatment suggestions utilizing technology that allows you to see what he is seeing. Our goal is to make sure our treatment recommendations are as transparent as possible. We want our patients to feel fully educated about their dental needs and as much a part of the process as the dentist.
