What to Expect During a Cleaning and ExamWhether it is for a cleaning or an exam, your first dentist appointment can be a little nerve-wracking. But don’t worry – our team will make you feel comfortable and at ease. With a family-friendly environment and a focus on patient education, we will make sure that you understand what is happening and why. We will start by looking at your dental history and discussing any concerns you have. Next, one of our registered dental hygienists will begin with a thorough cleaning. Finally, we’ll wrap up your visit with a check-up from our dentist and discuss any treatments that may be needed.
Professional CleaningOur dental hygienist will clean your teeth and gums with a gentle yet effective method during a cleaning. We use a combination of manual brushing and special dental instruments like scalpels and curettes to remove any built-up plaque and tartar. Cleanings done by a professional are essential for maintaining good dental health. Even with thorough flossing and brushing at home, there are always some tricky areas to reach and clean. Our professional tools can clean deep between teeth and along the gum line. We will also polish your teeth to remove any surface stains, which will slow any yellowing or discoloration.
Thorough Dental ExamOnce your teeth are shiny and clean, our dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam. They will check for any signs of tooth decay and perform a gum disease evaluation. They will also look at your bite, tooth, and root positions, how your teeth come together, and check any existing restorations you have. They may also take dental x-rays or an oral cancer screening if necessary.
Oral Health AssessmentAfter your exam, our dentist will provide you with a complete oral health assessment. This will include their findings and any treatment recommendations for future visits. They may also provide you with a hygiene plan to help keep your teeth clean and healthy.
