What happens at my new patient appointment?
Upon arrival, you will complete new patient forms and be assessed by one of our dentists. All forms are available here and we encourage you to complete them online prior to your arrival for faster check in. An assistant or hygienist will take photos of your smile, teeth, and full mouth x-rays (18 images).
Once we complete the x-rays, we will perform a comprehensive exam. This involves charting your existing restoration and missing teeth, performing a periodontal evaluation, and completing a traditional cleaning if needed.
If a more involved cleaning is needed due to gum disease, your provider will discuss the available treatment options.
How long does a new patient appointment last?
This appointment takes approximately two hours.
What kind of x-rays do I need to take?
If it is your first visit to our practice, we will need to complete a full intraoral series (18 films). These capture imagery of your teeth’ roots and allow us to establish a baseline of your overall dental health.
For established patients, routine x-rays (4-6 films) are taken every six months to a year, based on your risk of developing cavities. Typically, a full intraoral series is completed every five years unless directed by your provider.
How often should I visit the dentist?
Traditional cleanings are completed every six months. If you have periodontal (gum) disease and have received non-surgical periodontal therapy, cleanings may be needed more frequently (every three to four months) to ensure your mouth stays healthy.
What happens during my crown appointment?
Our office utilizes the latest technology and can fabricate crowns in a single visit. During a crown appointment, your dentist will free your tooth of cracks and decay. Once that is complete, our expanded functions dental assistant (EFDA) will use a computer and wand to take a scan of your tooth and bite.
While waiting for your crown to be designed and milled, you will be able to watch TV, Netflix, Hulu, or just relax and listen to music of your choice. The process for milling your crown is much like using a 3D printer. Once the crown is fabricated, we verify the fit by taking an x-ray. From there, the doctor will cement the finished crown in place.
With same-day crown technology, it eliminates the need for temporary crowns and saves you time in the dental chair! For existing patients, expect your visit to take around 90 minutes. For new patients, your visit will take about two hours.
