At Braddock Dental, comprehensive examinations are just that: comprehensive. Dr. Caligan believes in doing a thorough evaluation to identify any urgent concerns as well as any risk factors that may lead to future problems. In addition to evaluating gum health and checking for cavities, Dr. Caligan performs an oral cancer screening, TMJ assessment, and cosmetic evaluation. We review the findings with you along with x-rays and photos, and together we customize a plan to address immediate needs and prevent future concerns. Dr. Caligan performs periodic exams at each follow up appointment to monitor these findings and identify new developments as they arise.
