New Patients Will Experience a Thorough First Visit

At your first visit, you will experience our comprehensive approach. We include a complete set of dental X-rays, an exam of your teeth, an exam and measurements of your gums, oral cancer screening, and a head and neck exam to establish a baseline of your current oral health. Our hygienist will also provide a dental cleaning at this appointment.

After we gather this information and consider your smile goals, we will tailor a treatment plan to meet your dental needs. For example, based on your oral hygiene habits and gum health status, we will provide input on the type of dental cleaning and the frequency appropriate for you.

You Can Lower Your Risk of Cavities and Gum Disease

On your end, it's imperative that you focus on two things: an excellent at-home routine where you brush at least twice a day, floss daily and faithfully keep your twice-yearly dental appointments for cleanings and exams.

For our patients who unconsciously clench their jaws or grind their teeth, we recommend that you consider a custom-made nightguard to protect your enamel from unnecessary wear. Enamel broken down by continuous grinding are at an increased risk for fractures, tooth decay, and eventual tooth loss. Our team can provide options for reversing these avoidable conditions.

Also, if you're suffering from a toothache or persistent sensitivity, waiting to treat it is never a good idea. Instead, we suggest that you reach out and contact a member of our team to address your discomfort and solve its underlying causes.
