Your First Visits
You’ll feel comfortable and at ease from the moment you step inside the office of Sanding Dental. We strive to ensure both fearless and fearful patients receive pain free, caring attention. With most patients, we start with:
During your first visit, you can expect to fill out a simple new patient form where you will provide your medical history, including the prescription and over the counter medications you take.
Next, we’ll take x-rays of your teeth, including a panoramic x-ray, so we can diagnose any problems undetected by a visual exam, such as decay, abscesses, tumors, cysts, impacted teeth, jaw problems, and more. One of the registered dental hygienists at our Sanding Dental office will place a lead apron over you during the x-ray. Sanding Dental doesn’t advise having x-rays while pregnant, so if you’re pregnant or suspect you might be pregnant please let us know.
After x-rays, your Sanding Dental hygienist will give your teeth a complete cleaning. This involves gently scraping below the gum line to remove any tartar and plaque buildup that might cause cavities, gum disease, or other problems and then flossing and polishing your teeth. We can offer numbing agents if the scraping is uncomfortable and earphones to listen to music if the scraping sound bothers you.
Once your teeth are clean and buildup free, Sanding Dental will examine your entire mouth to look for signs of problems. If we do not see any signs of damage, you’re finished with your exam and will simply make another cleaning appointment in about six months. If we find that you do have a problem, we will discuss a treatment plan that will help you get back in good oral health.
That’s it for your first visit or two to Sanding Dental. Simply put, we work diligently to ensure a comfortable experience from the very first time you enter our office.
