During Your Appointment
Your Health History
Before the dental exam is performed, talk to our dentist about your health history. This will give our dentist insight into your oral health and the underlying causes of any dental problems you might be experiencing.
On the first visit, our dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam. During this comprehensive exam, our dentist will check your mouth and teeth for any chronic or potential issues, including periodontal disease, tooth decay, gingivitis, etc. X-rays may be conducted, as well. Following the comprehensive exam, our dentist will formulate a custom-made treatment plan for you.
During your dental cleaning, our hygienist will remove accumulated plaque from your teeth. After a thorough cleaning has been performed, your teeth will be polished.
Our dental assistant will take x-rays in order to examine your teeth, jawbone and overall bone health.
Brushing and Flossing
Brushing and flossing before the appointment will help our dentist examine your teeth more easily.
It’s important that our new patients understand there is nothing about your oral health you should hide from our dentist. Our dentist can improve your oral health, and hiding important information (such as smoking or not brushing teeth regularly) can have an impact on the treatment and services that our dentist recommends. It’s crucial you disclose your complete and accurate medical and dental history on your first visit.
After your treatment is over, our dentist may recommend various products to ensure that your oral health is always at its best.
