Your First Visit
The very first step to cleaner teeth? Complete a patient medical form.
After this, we look over your complete medical and dental history, as such factors can have a significant impact on your oral health, as well as other health conditions. Our goal is to get to know you as a person, not just a patient, to provide highly personalized dental services.
As part of the ‘getting to know you’ process, we take digital x-rays of your teeth to detect dental caries, tumors, and cysts, as well as for periodontal considerations such as bone loss. Plus, x-rays allow us to see the position of your teeth and subsequent roots.
Teeth Are Cleaned & Polished
After x-rays, one of our friendly, registered dental hygienists will perform a thorough examination of your gums and teeth. Their goal is to assess the current health of your mouth and look for signs of gum disease.
From there, it’s time to clean your teeth to perfection! A dental cleaning includes the removal of calculus (hardened plaque) which forms above and below the gum line. This plaque cannot be removed by simply brushing–no matter how hard you brush! Additionally, we remove the sticky, invisible film of plaque that forms over your teeth and can lead to peridontal disease.
In the last stage of cleaning, your teeth are polished and all the stains and remaining plaque are removed. The end result? A brighter, whiter and healthier smile!
At this point, our dental team can advise you on the best brushing and flossing techniques to maintain your oral health.
The first thing you can expect after your deep teeth cleaning, is a detailed report of your overall dental health. One of our highly trained dentists will complete a thorough dental examination, including a physical exam with oral cancer screening, and a review of your x-rays. After your check up, we take the time to discuss all findings with you. If there are any issues to address, we discuss different treatment options so you can make the best comprehensive decisions about your dental health.
Billing & Insurance
We are all about making your dental experience as positive as possible. Therefore, we promise not to spring any surprises on you. After your first visit, we offer a clear and detailed estimate outlining the cost of treatment (if necessary). This includes a price quote for recommended treatments, along with the date for your follow-up appointment.
After your appointment, our friendly staff takes care of billing. If you have insurance coverage, we electronically submit the cost to your insurance company so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
