Your first dental visit is an essential step in maintaining good oral health. At Southeastern Dental Center, we take a comprehensive approach to oral health care, starting with a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth. We will create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health. In addition to routine cleanings and exams, we may recommend X-rays, fluoride treatments, or sealants.
We hope that you will feel confident and reassured knowing that you are receiving the best possible care at Southeastern Dental.
First, we will take a complete medical history. This is to ensure that no current health issues may conflict with receiving dental treatment. If you have any medical records you would like included, please bring those to your first appointment.
Next, we will do an exam. This will consist of visually examining your teeth and gums to look for any signs of tooth decay or gum disease. Then, we may need to take an x-ray of your teeth to get a complete picture of your dental health. This helps us to identify any cavities that may be present. Finally, we will create a treatment plan if needed based on your individualized needs.
Finally, we will clean and polish your teeth. We may also apply fluoride to help protect your teeth from decay.
After your first visit, you should expect to return for regular checkups and cleanings every six months. These regular visits will help keep your teeth and gums healthy and prevent problems from developing.
