Here is a brief summary about everything you need to know to be ready for your first visit to a new dentist in Tallahassee, Florida.
Your first step is to call our office and set up an appointment. Consultations are a great opportunity for you to meet our dentist. Our dentist can explain the different procedures that are offered and how you can benefit from them.
After studying your dental health history, our dentist will examine your gums, teeth, and mouth. This procedure is known as a comprehensive exam and is performed to study the state of your dental health and hygiene. An important part of the comprehensive exam is the cleaning. The teeth and mouth are thoroughly cleaned before moving onto the x-rays so that there are no extra particles in your mouth at that time.
Our dentist will generally look for any sensitivity, decay, and redness around the gums and teeth during the examination, and explain the procedure to you, accordingly. Even though our dentist will have already studied your medical and dental history from the forms you filled, you may still be asked questions about your teeth while examining them. This is common if our dentist sees anything unusual or something which was not mentioned in the forms.
