Before any dental appointment, it’s important that your dentist knows your entire medical history. This way, they can determine if there are any conditions or medications that may be problematic during your treatment.
During your comprehensive exam, we will check the health of your teeth and gums. We will take dental X-rays if needed and also look for any signs of decay, infection, misalignment, and more. We will also check for signs of oral cancer. If we find any problems, we will talk to you about your treatment options. We will also talk about your at-home care. We will show you how to brush and floss effectively and when you should come in for your next visit.
Your general dentistry appointment also includes a thorough cleaning and polishing. This removes all plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, helping to prevent cavities and gum disease. Next, we will also provide additional preventive care treatments, such as fluoride treatments or dental sealants if needed.
