Your First Visit
Our dentists highly recommend that you visit a dental clinic on a bi-annual basis so that you can have your overall oral health status assessed. If you happen to have cavities or gum disease then you might need to visit the dentist more frequently depending on the severity of your case.
Sometimes patients tend to be anxious regarding their dental appointment, especially if it is their first time. This is why we always ensure that we are attentive to your every requirement. One of our main objectives during your first dental visit is to make you feel comfortable, informed and happy with the treatment options provided to you by our dentists.
Your first appointment will include the following
The dentist will go over your medical and dental health records
Discuss any points of concern you may have
Conduct a full dental examination of both your gums and teeth to verify if you have any cavities, gum disease or any other kind of dental issues
An Intra Oral Camera would be used so that the dentist can take photos of your teeth and show you to help indicate if any treatment is required
Digital dental x-rays will be taken in order to check if you have any hidden cavities
You ask, we answer
As a new patient, it’s helpful to bring your dental insurance information, any relevant medical history, a list of current medications, and, if applicable, records from your previous dentist. This information helps the dental team provide you with personalized and efficient care.
For most individuals, it’s recommended to schedule dental check-ups and cleanings every six months. However, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits based on your oral health needs or specific conditions.
Your first dental appointment typically involves a comprehensive examination, including a review of your medical history, oral health assessment, and any necessary X-rays. The dentist will discuss your oral health goals, address any concerns you may have, and develop a personalized treatment plan.
To maintain good oral hygiene at home, it’s important to brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and use an antimicrobial mouthwash. Your dentist may provide specific recommendations based on your oral health needs and may suggest additional tools or techniques to enhance your home care routine.
Before your first appointment, it’s advisable to inquire about the payment options and dental insurance accepted by the dental office. This helps you understand the financial aspects of your care and ensures a smooth experience during your visit. Many dental offices offer a variety of payment options, including dental insurance, credit cards, and payment plans.
