Patient Education & Advice

Dr. Gerber is happy to educate his patients on any dental or general health concern. During your next dental exam, you can ask Dr. Gerber about oral hygiene, cosmetic dentistry options, dental implants, teeth whitening, gum disease, oral cancer, TMJ disorder, sleep apnea, Bruxism, or any other oral health concern you may have. Dr. Gerber will be happy to shed some light on these important dental health issues.

What Happens During a Dental Exam

When you visit Dr. Gerber for the first time, you will be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire. Dr. Gerber wants to be aware of any medications or existing medical concerns that will affect your dental health. Next, Dr. Gerber will meet with you to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. He will explain the dental exam process and visually check your teeth and gums.  He may note any previous dental work and obvious trouble spots. Gentle Dental Care uses the latest dental technologies for patient diagnostics. Dr. Gerber will check your teeth for decay using the DIAGNOdent laser decay detector and an intra oral camera. After this, he will take a digital x-ray of your teeth and check your gums for swelling, redness, or other signs of possible gum disease. Dr. Gerber will then be able to discuss his findings with you and develop a plan to address and treat any concerns. Dr. Gerber and his experienced team will take extra care to ensure that you’re completely calm and comfortable during every step of your exam with sedation dentistry options if needed.

Schedule Your Dental Exam Appointments

Everyone needs a routine dental exam. If you don’t currently have any dental concerns, you still need to make a dental exam appointment to prevent tooth decay and keep your mouth healthy. If you have urgent concerns like a missing or painful tooth, cavities, sensitivity, or bleeding gums, then you should make an appointment for a dental exam as soon as possible.
