Initial Oral Examination
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.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral Sedation or Conscious Sedation offers a way for you to get the dental treatment you need without the anxiety. It’s safe and painless. Oral sedation involves taking a small pill prior to dental appointment or here at our office. You are sedated comfortably for 2-6 hours allowing Dr. Avery to perform treatments that are longer than a normal dental appointment. Read More...
Periodontal Bacterial Testing
MyPerioPath® - Determines the cause of periodontal infections

Periodontal Genetic Testing
MyPerioID® PST® - Determines who is at increased risk for severe periodontal infections
In Depth: Identifies individual genetic susceptibility to periodontal disease and enables the clinician to establish which patients are at increased risk for more severe periodontal infections due to an exaggerated immune response.
3 Oral HPV Testing
OraRisk® HPV - Determines who is at increased risk for HPV-related oral cancers
In Depth: A non-invasive, easy-to-use screening tool to identify the type(s) of HPV, a mucosal viral infection that could potentially lead to oral cancer. OraRisk® HPV enables the clinician to establish increased risk for oral cancer and determine appropriate referral and monitoring conditions.
