DIAGNOSTIC DENTISTRY IN GLENDALE
Diagnostic dentistry is the branch of dentistry where all exams occur and then a diagnosis follows. Specifically, in this branch of dentistry all of the questions are asked and X-rays are taken. Exams are also in order to diagnose the issue and come up with a treatment plan. This branch also covers screenings for oral cancer.
WHAT’S INVOLVED IN DIAGNOSTIC DENTISTRY
Comprehensive Oral Exam
A comprehensive oral exam will include a dental professional examining a patient’s mouth to look for signs of decay, gum disease, and any other issues that may be visible to the naked eye. This exam allows the dentist to see smaller details which are not visible by simply peering into a patient’s mouth. A comprehensive exam may go beyond the basic perusal and include panoramic X-rays or even an oral camera.
Oral Cancer Screening
At times, oral cancer screenings may be conducted during the diagnostic stage of your visit. This simply just means a dental professional will do a physical examination of your mouth and look for signs of oral cancer. If necessary, there may be a small tissue sample that’s retrieved and sent off for testing, which will provide a more concrete answer if the dental professional feels there is any question.
DIGITAL X-RAYS FOR DIAGNOSTIC DENTISTRY
X-rays commonly have a large piece of dark film hung up on a special light machine so it can be viewed. However, with digital X-rays, a machine takes the photo and turns it into a photo file that can be viewed on a computer without the hassle of film, lighting, etc. This also means you will not have to wait as long for the X-rays to be viewed. These types of X-rays also make it easier for the photos to be passed around the office, or to be quickly pulled up at a later date as needed.

PATIENTS RECOMMEND US
What a great dental office. I was just in there today and the people are amazing! My oldest daughter and I were scheduled to get our teeth cleaned at the same time, but I had to bring my year and a half old daughter with us, it was daddy’s day while mommy had to run errands. They helped out so much so I could get my teeth cleaned until my oldest was done and she could watch her. Great people!
This place is awesome. The atmosphere is dope. The staff is very nice and friendly. The place is so inviting. The exams and cleanings are VERY THOROUGH. They don’t just clean and send you own your way. They ask questions and get to know YOU. This was the best dental visit I’ve ever had.
Dr. Arthur’s one of the best dentists I have amazing dental visits and the quality of work he does is outstanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a dentist. Thank you so much for all the great work.
