Secret to a SmileRoutine checkup
Brush, Floss, and Visit the Dentist at least twice a year. As Benjamin Franklin says, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” The care that you put into your teeth will protect you from future harm and expense.
Your First Appointment
Get the Star Treatment
A new patient appointment generally lasts for about an hour and a half. We take an exam, X-rays, intraoral pictures, an oral cancer screening, and give consultation.
Before you leave, you should go ahead and make your next appointment so that it is already on the calendar! For most patients, six months between appointments is ideal. In rare instances, we might ask that you come in more often so that we can keep an eye on a particularly troublesome aspect of your oral health.
The Importance of a Routine
Dont Skip it
It’s tempting to tell yourself that you’ll see the dentist when you need to, but the truth isn’t quite as attractive. You don’t realize that if you wait for your mouth to be in pain, your appointment is going to be unpleasant, than if you came for routine visits.
While at your next cleaning, be sure to ask us about other steps you can take to prevent decay from ever beginning. With dental sealants, fluoride varnish, and other tips, we can help you achieve healthier teeth with minimal effort or cost!
