Diagnostic Impressions

Dr. Hansen takes diagnostic impressions to ensure the fit of any crown, bridge, or denture. The exact shape of your teeth and gums is molded in a flexible mixture that sets quickly. The mold is then used to create a replica of your mouth.

Comprehensive Oral Exams

The first step in any dental care plan is to determine your existing health conditions. All first-time patients receive a comprehensive examination, including documenting their medical history, taking full X-rays, screening for oral cancer, examining the gums, checking each tooth for cavities, and examining your jaw and bite.

Periodic Oral Exams

Once you are an established patient with a preventive dental care plan, you will want to see us regularly for cleanings and checkups. Periodic exams are important for maintaining a healthy smile.

Consultation and Treatment Planning

Gum Disease Diagnosis

Gum disease is much more common than people think. White Peak Dental will examine your gums for disease and determine the best course of treatment. Regular, careful brushing and flossing are essential to gum health.

Oral Cancer Screening
