We will conduct a thorough examination on your first visit to determine the best course of action to achieve dental health and your goals. We will:
- Take full mouth x-rays to identify any current problems and to use as a baseline on future visits.
- Assess gum condition and health.
- Examine teeth for cavities and condition of old dental restorations.
- Perform a head and neck exam, including salivary glands and lymph nodes, for swelling or other abnormalities.
- Screen for oral cancer and TMJ (jaw joint).
- Determine what type of cleaning you require and complete if time permits.
Many health conditions can affect oral health as well as our ability to treat you safely. Your dentist must understand your complete medical history to treat you effectively.
Fillings can last for many years, but over time they wear down, discolor, crack and sometimes fall out. Early detection of problems with fillings can help you avoid getting cavities under the filling and causing more serious decay. Let us know if you’re experiencing any pain. We’ll check your fillings at every visit to determine if any need to be replaced.
Composite fillings are widely preferred to amalgam today to fill new cavities and replace old fillings needing repair. However, there are some instances when amalgam is still recommended, based on your individual health profile.
Absolutely. Dental xrays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools. Many oral conditions occur between teeth or under the gums or bones, undetectable by the human eye, and may have no early signs or symptoms. Left untreated, these conditions can create serious dental and general health problems, including loss of teeth and heart problems. Early detection with xrays can make treatment much less painful, faster, and less expensive. The American Dental Association recommends getting bitewing radiographs every year and full mouth or panoramic x-rays every 3-5 years.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, you should begin cleaning your child’s gums with a soft wet cloth soon after birth. As soon as the first tooth appears, start brushing twice daily with a soft infant toothbrush and just a smear of toothpaste. When you come in for your child’s first visit, we’ll show you how to brush properly.
We recommend children have their first dental visit by age 3. We welcome children as soon as their first tooth erupts or if a parent has any concerns. Starting your child’s dental visits at a young age makes the dental office a familiar place and can prevent anxiety at the dental office when they are older.
Please note that patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all visits. We encourage parents and guardians to be engaged in their children’s dental care.
