What you can expect
Assessing Your Teeth, Gums, and Bite
First, we will discuss the reason for your visit. Then, Dr. Katyal will conduct a thorough exam, which will include checking your bite alignment, assessing the integrity of existing dental work, checking for decay, Temporomandibular joint health, and your bite alignment.
Did you know that gum disease can increase your chances of cardiovascular disease by 70%?
Don’t worry! We will suggest therapies for prevention or treatment as well as take x-rays to provide a complete picture of your oral health and aid in an accurate diagnosis.
Screening for Oral Cancer
Oral cancer is preventable if caught early. We will check your soft tissues for signs of oral cancer.
Did you know that oral cancer claims the lives of over 9000 Americans each year?
