New Patient Visit

 

dentist_doctor_visitThe standard recommendation is to visit twice a year for check-ups and cleanings. It is important to visit your dentist on a regular basis because he or she will perform procedures and look for dental problems that you cannot detect on your own. Your dentist will examine your gum health, your jaw, and of course your teeth.

Important Reasons For Twice-Yearly Visits:

  • To allow your dentist to check for problems that you might not see or feel including early signs of decay.
  • To treat any other oral health problems found (Generally, the earlier a problem is found, the more manageable it is.)

Cleaning

Although home-based tooth brushing and flossing help remove plaque, only a professional cleaning – provided by the dentist or dental hygienist – can thoroughly clean your teeth and remove the hardened plaque (called calculus or tartar) that builds up on teeth. The hygienists use a series of metal hand instruments to clean your teeth.

Polishing

After your teeth have been cleaned, they are polished to remove plaque and stains on the tooth surface. The polish contains an abrasive substance and fluoride, and is applied using a small rotating rubber cup or brush attached to the dental hand piece.

Prevention

The hygienist might offer additional instructions for you to follow at home, based on the results of your exam. Don’t hesitate to ask us for instructions about brushing or flossing, or general care questions about your teeth and gums.

Digital X-Rays

We use DIGITAL X-RAYS thereby exposing our patients to much less radiation than traditional x-rays. The dentist will consider your clinical examination, dental history, and risk for developing cavities in determining the frequency for x-rays.

Treatment recommendations

If any oral health problems are identified during your examination, the dentist will make recommendations for the best next steps. These might include referral to another oral health care specialist, additional diagnostic tests, or advice to return for restoration work or additional oral health care.

We take pride in offering our patients the latest technology in dental care including:

  • Air Abrasion: For certain small cavities, Air Abrasion can mean NO needles and NO drills.
  • DIAGNOdent: Laser Reflection allows us to find cavities on the chewing surfaces of back teeth, even when they just beginning, and would have been missed by previous detection methods.
  • The Intra-Oral Camera: With a small camera shaped like a pen, it puts a live shot of your teeth and gums on a screen. This allows you to view your mouth exactly as the doctor sees it!
  • Digital Imaging: Allows us to create images of your mouth, as if the cosmetic procedures have been completed. We can then view these images together, and if necessary modify the image until it shows us exactly what you want.

Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss any aspect of your dental health or to talk about our creative financing options – no-one should be denied the proper dental care because of money.
