APPOINTMENT TIME?

Scheduling your smile care

Naturally, all our patients are different. As a result, we schedule your checkups based on what keeps your smile at its best. We need to see you often enough to diagnose and treat any problems and to take preventive action. That’s usually once every three to six months.

If you brush and floss regularly and you don’t have any tooth troubles, you may be tempted to bypass your next appointment. Please don’t! The reason is simple – only a dentist is trained to spot potential problems and to provide the right treatment.

A regular professional checkup includes a screening for unusual or small problems that might become big ones! This covers the early warning signs for gum disease, infections, faulty restorations, and oral cancer. We may even be able to fix some small problems right away!

The checkup will most likely include a thorough cleaning to remove tartar buildup and provides an opportunity for us to stay in touch and to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Taking good care of your teeth and gums should be a habit. So, if you think you need a checkup, give us a call. We’ll be happy to let you know if you’re overdue. And remember … regular dental appointments are a good long-term investment in your health.

PERSONALIZED CARE

Ask your hygienist

We practice what we preach. In fact, proof of our commitment to optimal preventive oral health care can be seen in our wonderful hygienists who are licensed primary oral health care professionals. Their goal is to help you to achieve and maintain optimal oral health through diagnostic assessment, prevention, and education. Here’s how your hygienist develops your personalized dental hygiene plan of care based on your needs.

Assessment – Reviewing your medical and dental history. Examining your teeth for decay, visually and with radiographs. Examining your gum tissue.

Assessing your biting, chewing, and swallowing patterns. Evaluating your dental readiness for procedures including cosmetic smile enhancements. And, reassessing your overall treatment.

Prevention – Screening for oral cancer with clinical measurements, radiographs, and other assessment methods. Applying fluoride and sealants. Cleaning and scaling teeth to remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains.

Education – Instruction about brushing and flossing. Counseling about diet and lifestyle and their relationship to oral health. Explanation of dental treatments, orthodontics, periodontal therapy, and cosmetic procedures.

Your hygienist is always happy to answer questions about your personalized plan of care which is imperative to your oral health. After all, proper home care including brushing, flossing, and healthy eating are a crucial part of preventive dentistry. So, make sure to ask even a seemingly unimportant question. You may be surprised how important it really is!
