Initial Consultation Expectations
We understand that your first visit is vital in your journey toward better dental health and overall well-being. Our dedicated team is committed to making this experience as informative and comfortable as possible. Now, let’s walk through what you can expect during your initial visit.
Your First Visit: What to Expect
When you visit us for the first time for a “TMD Evaluation,” our primary goal is to determine if we are the right fit for your needs. Dr. Raman will assess whether you have a TMJ problem and if it’s the probable cause of your symptoms. This thorough evaluation is critical to our personalized approach to care.
Comprehensive Clinical Examination
Your initial consultation will include various assessments to understand your condition better. These may include a Doppler examination of the TM joints, muscle and joint palpations, upper cervical range of motion, jaw range of motion, diagnostic photographs, posture and gait analysis, and a balance test.
Duration and Details of the Visit
Expect to spend around 90 minutes with us during your first visit. This time allows Dr. Raman to give you a detailed report of his findings, discuss all treatment options, and explain their consequences. It’s a thorough process designed to ensure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about your health.
