First Visit to Dentist
But it’s time to get those teeth looking their best! We know you want your smile to be as healthy and bright as possible, so we have some information on what you can expect at your first appointment.
Here are a few things that may happen during your first visit to your dentist. Remember, this is just a general overview of what might happen in our clinic.
- A dental x-ray of your mouth
- Examination of all surfaces of your teeth and gums
- review of any dental records from previous visits or other dentists (if applicable)
- Teeth cleaning if needed, which includes polishing the surface of teeth using special tools or toothpaste designed for this purpose; removing tartar below the gum line; scaling away plaque on tooth surfaces; applying fluoride varnish or sealant to protect against tooth decay
- Checking for cavities by examining hard-to-reach areas in between teeth and under fillings
- Inspecting wisdom teeth (if applicable).
- Taking impressions (moulds) of upper and lower jaws so we can make custom night guards or retainers if necessary
*Note that not all patients require these services. The checkup routine is done on a case-to-case basis
Benefits of visiting your dentist
Keep Your Smile Looking Beautiful: Clean teeth make you feel confident and will help to maintain your healthy smile in the long run.
Teeth cleaning, an integral part of a regular dental checkup, will eliminate any stains on your teeth and help keep them super clean and healthy teeth – hopefully so much that they’ll sparkle!
Saves Money In The Long Run: Regular dental checkups are relatively more affordable than the expense of not only treating and paying for expensive procedures but also your wallet.
Missing a dental appointment can also cause significant damage since it’s an indicator of poor oral hygiene habits that could cost much higher down the road when major issues arise that require costly procedures.
Prevent dental problems and save your teeth: Gum disease and tooth decay are some of the most common reasons why people lose their teeth. Gum diseases often occur due to inflammation in your gums that might damage the jawbone, leading you to have a higher risk of losing your teeth altogether.
At regular dentist visits, one can keep periodontal diseases at bay by maintaining oral hygiene by brushing your tongue along with flossing regularly after meals.
