in ultimate comfort
Prevention, in any health discipline, is the key to avoiding escalating health problems and disease. This is especially true in dentistry. Establishing a relationship with Dr. Sohl and our Stuart, FL dental practice, and committing to semi-annual exams and cleanings, will ensure that any outstanding dental health issue is observed, addressed, and managed. Most importantly, we can halt the acceleration of many dental health problems and reduce the potential for costly and extensive treatments in the future.
At a comprehensive checkup with Dr. Sohl, we will use digital x-rays and intraoral photography to aid in accurate diagnosis. In addition, he’ll discuss your medical and dental history, current medications, and past experiences with dental care. A thorough exam includes assessing the head and neck, gums, jaw joints, teeth, and screening for gum disease and oral cancer.
Dr. Sohl may use computerized occlusal analysis to evaluate your occlusion – or how upper and lower teeth fit together. He’ll ask questions about issues such as headaches, gum or tooth irritation, and sleeping or breathing problems. Contemporary dentistry can address a number of disorders that previously required treatment by a physician or specialist.
