Your Health History
Before the dental exam is performed, talk to our dentist about your health history. This will give our dentist insight on your oral health and the underlying causes of any present problems you may be experiencing.
During your first visit, our dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam. During this exam, our dentist will check your mouth and teeth for any chronic or potential problems as well as any periodontal diseases, tooth decay, gingivitis, etc. X-rays may be taken as well. Following the comprehensive exam, our dentist will formulate a custom-made treatment plan for you.
During your dental cleaning, our dentist will remove accumulated plaque and tartar from your teeth. After a thorough cleaning has been done, our dentist will polish your teeth.
X-rays are taken so that our dentist can examine your teeth, jawbone and overall bone health.
Brushing and Flossing
Brushing and flossing before the appointment will help our dentist properly examine your teeth.
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 your teeth regularly) can have an impact on the treatments and services that our dentist recommends. It’s crucial that you disclose your complete and accurate medical and dental history during your first visit.
After your treatment is over, our dentist may recommend products that can help you improve and maintain your oral health.
