What to Expect at Your Hygiene Visit
At Oak Lane Dental, we take your oral health seriously. We encourage our patients to return every six months for hour long appointments to prevent most avoidable oral health issues. We recognize that 1 in 2 Americans deal with some level of dental anxiety, so we go out of our way to provide a wide array of soothing options, including sedation. One in three Americans also deal with more serious levels of gum disease. For those patients, we encourage deeper cleanings in the office every 3-4 months. During your visit, you can expect:
Your hygienist will begin by covering any dental concerns or tooth pain you may be experiencing and any personal interest or goals in enhancing the cosmetic appearance of your teeth. Your hygienist or dentist will address these issues during your appointment or schedule a future visit to help you achieve your goals.
During your dental visit, your hygienist will use specialized tools designed to eliminate plaque and tartar from your teeth and gumline. Even with regular brushing and flossing, tartar can build up, requiring a professional help for a complete cleaning.
Your hygienist will use a handheld electric toothbrush to gently scrub away stains and residual tartar, leaving your teeth sparkling clean. After polishing your teeth, your hygienist will gently floss them, ensuring a thorough and fresh result.
During your visit, your dentist will perform a comprehensive oral exam including reviewing current x-rays. Your dentist will be looking for early signs of gum disease and tooth decay to help prevent future, more expensive issues. This exam includes assessing gum health and detecting dark spots or tartar buildup on teeth. Your oral health is our priority, and we aim to provide a thorough examination for your well-being.
