New Patient Visit – How it Works
During your first visit we will take some digital X-Rays and see what’s going on inside of your mouth. Then, we’ll learn about your oral health goals and come up with a treatment plan.
Your Mouth, Your Decisions
Once we have shared our recommendations, we want you make the best decisions for yourself. We will never be pushy or recommend treatments that you do not need.
About Teeth Cleaning
While dental emergencies can strike anyone, anytime, our patients who commit to regular preventive care appointments usually experience fewer problems over time. Professional cleanings with a registered dental hygienist allow us to take a proactive approach to your dental health and address issues while they are small. Despite your best efforts, deposits of mineralized plaque, known as tartar, adhere to areas of the teeth. These deposits create a nice home for millions of harmful bacteria. Left unchecked, they flood toxins into the gums resulting in devastating chronic problems and can even result in the loss of teeth.
When tartar is removed at your professional hygiene appointment, it doesn’t have the opportunity to produce irreversible damage. We use professional instruments and prescription strength polishing paste that gently buffs away stain and plaque, leaving your teeth ultra-smooth and shiny. Since discoloration settles into the enamel of your teeth over time, this helps slow yellowing while creating a glassy surface for better cleaning.
HOW LONG WILL MY APPOINTMENT TAKE?
If you come in for regular cleanings, your appointment should last approximately 60 minutes. However, time may vary depending on your oral hygiene.
WILL IT HURT TO GET MY TEETH CLEANED?
New advances in the dental industry have allowed for a very comfortable experience during regular cleanings. However, some discomfort may be felt during cleaning near the gum line.
WHY DO I NEED TO GET MY TEETH CLEANED OFTEN?
A professional cleaning can get to places in your mouth that you can’t with a toothbrush of floss. It is important to rid your mouth of the harmful bacteria hiding below your gums.
