Dr. Shannon Pye and our team want you to feel comfortable in our office and prepared for your first appointment. We have provided a brief overview of your first visit below. If you have any questions about your first visit with our dentist in Walterboro, South Carolina, please feel free to contact our office at 843-549-5913. We will be happy to provide you with additional information and answer any questions that you may have.

During your first appointment at our office, our dentist will perform a complete oral examination, including a visual examination, periodontal evaluation, and diagnosis. As part of the visual exam, we will closely examine your teeth, their supporting structures, and the oral anatomy. We also often use digital X-rays to diagnose tooth decay, bone loss, and other dental problems. We will perform an oral cancer screening, which helps us detect any abnormalities in the oral tissues. This is important so that any emerging, problematic issues can be detected early, when the conditions are easier to treat.

We also perform a periodontal probing and examination during your initial exam. This allows us to evaluate the health of your gums and diagnose any present gum disease (periodontal disease). In addition, we will analyze your bite (occlusion) to identify any problems.

After your examination is complete, our dentist will review our findings with you so you can better understand the current state of your oral health. We will then recommend the treatments needed to correct any conditions or problems we have detected. Our team will explain your treatment options so you can make an educated decision about your care. We are happy to discuss any concerns you may have about your oral health or about your treatment options; we want you to feel confident and comfortable with your oral healthcare.

We encourage you to contact our office today to learn more about your initial oral examination and to schedule an appointment with our friendly team.
