Dr. Baucum DDS General Dentistry
At Dr. Baucum DDS, we believe the first step in keeping your smile beautiful is to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. We offer comprehensive new patient exams, as well as routine exams at cleaning appointments. We recommend having your teeth cleaned at least every 6 months.
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
