NEW PATIENT EXAM
The experienced Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena are here to provide you with a comprehensive exam and an accurate diagnosis of any problems you may have with your teeth and smile. During the exam, they’ll discuss the various ways to improve any issues.
Following the exam, the doctor will explain the best treatment options. Depending on your individual needs, these could range from dental fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, implants, and even braces. They will also provide advice on how to maintain your dental care such as brushing and flossing daily, regular cleanings, and avoiding foods high in sugar or acid.

By taking the doctor’s advice, you’ll be able to improve your smile.
Digital X-rays give us a precise, thorough view of your mouth and supportive structures. This is an essential step in assessing your dental health and devising a suitable treatment plan.
Digital X-rays can also help us detect any issues before they become too serious. For instance, if there is a cavity, X-rays can tell us its size and placement so we can deliver the best treatment. Dental X-rays are also beneficial for keeping track of changes in your mouth over time, like cavities and gum disease.
One of our staff members will conduct an interview to find out more about your dental health history and what your goals are for your dental health. This information is passed on to Dr. Mohan or Dr. Veena before we begin your examination to save you time.
Intraoral camera Video Tour
Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena are utilizing an intraoral camera to give you a thorough look inside your mouth. This “video tour” of your mouth allows for a detailed examination of each tooth in high definition. It is a great tool for educating patients since this camera allows for much more than a visual inspection. Even the furthest of the back molars can be seen, and the camera can be angled to get a full picture. Still, photos can be taken and used for reference during treatment, making it one of the most reliable and comprehensive diagnostic devices.
This camera can detect even the slightest changes in the mouth and teeth, so it is a key player in the detection of cavities and other dental health issues. It can also be used to track the progress of treatments, like when dealing with orthodontic work or dental restorative procedures. This ensures that Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena are providing effective treatments that yield the best possible results. The intraoral camera is an invaluable asset for any dental practitioner and is essential for providing the highest quality of care.
Your dentist can snap individual shots of any areas that need more attention. This gives you a better look and helps you understand the problems and solutions.
A tooth-by-tooth assessment also helps your dentist detect any early signs of decay or other problems that can’t be seen with a regular dental exam. This way, they can identify and address the issues before they become more severe. Plus, these photos can be used to track your dental health over time. You can compare them with future exams and keep tabs on any changes in your teeth.
Once the condition of your mouth is established and understood, Dr. Mohan or Dr. Veena will discuss and plan treatment options with you. After you have decided and agreed on a treatment plan, you will meet with a financial specialist to coordinate a payment plan that is right for you.
Once the treatment plan is established and the payment plan is decided, you will be scheduled for the treatment. Before the treatment begins, you will be given an explanation of the procedure and any risks associated with it. You will be able to ask questions and voice any concerns that you may have. Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena will make sure that you are comfortable and that all of your questions are answered before the treatment begins. They will also provide you with any post-operative instructions that you may need to ensure a successful treatment.

What is included in a teeth cleaning?
A dental cleaning typically includes a thorough examination of the teeth and gums, removal of plaque and tartar build-up, polishing of the teeth, and fluoride treatment. The cleaning may also include X-rays to look for any decay or other problems that may not be visible to the naked eye.
How long do dental exams?
Full dental exams typically takes between 30 and 60 minutes.
During full dental exams, the dentist will perform a thorough visual examination of all the teeth, gums, and surrounding oral structures. This includes looking for any signs of decay, tooth wear, and gum disease. They will also check for any signs of oral cancer and examine the neck and jaw for any signs of abnormalities. If necessary, the dentist may take X-rays to further examine the teeth and the surrounding structures. The dentist may also use dental instruments to check for signs of plaque and tartar buildup. After the examination, the dentist will discuss the results with the patient and discuss any necessary treatments or preventive measures that should be taken to obtain and maintain healthy teeth.
