Routine dental appointments should occur on a semiannual basis. Along with brushing and flossing, visits are important to your overall efforts to protect your smile. We are always happy to answer questions regarding the preventive care we offer, including questions about what to expect during your first visit to our location.
What Happens During A Dental Checkup?
Your Dental Cleaning
Your hygienist will closely evaluate your teeth and remove plaque, tartar, and any other debris present. This session also treats enamel surfaces to protect against new bacteria formations. When appropriate, we can provide feedback about your current hygiene routine or arrange a more involved cleaning to address periodontal concerns.
Your Dental Review
Dental reviews with Dr. Greenfield will include visual evaluations and examinations with dental technology as needed. There are many threats beyond tooth decay that can affect you. Based on what is found during your exam, we can discuss your health and any necessary procedures to restore it.
A dental visit is your opportunity to ask questions! You can bring up oral health concerns as well as your worries over problems that are cosmetic.
Is Routine Care Right For You?
A typical patient will see us every six months, but you may have different needs. If so, we can build a schedule and treatment plan that fits your history and active concerns. We can also assist with arranging specialized care when needed.
