What to Expect on the First Dental Visit?
The first consultation is expected to be short and light. This is the time in which you need to make yourself feel comfortable in our office. Making yourself comfortable on their first visit will play an important role in your future appointments. You can expect us to go into detail about the essential steps of oral health care, good dental habits, and your medical history. We will do a basic oral examination, checking for tooth decay, reviewing all of your teeth and existing restorations and searching for any gum problems.
Going to the dentist is not something that people necessarily like to do, but once tooth problems arise, everyone regrets putting off coming to see us. According to studies, about 40 million Americans avoid going to see the dentist due to nervousness and the feeling of being edgy. Also, research also finds that in the last four decades, dental anxiety is affecting 29.2 percent of adults and 43 percent of the children.
What You Can Expect From Us
While most oral healthcare professionals can make a broad guess on potential causes of your oral problems without an examination, we feel that it is always better to see what is going on before we hazard a guess. We will always answer any questions that you have and explain, in detail, what you can expect from treatment because any type of work is done.
Just like with any skilled profession, from mechanics to surgeons, the equipment being used is an essential part of the equation.
