At Thomas Family Dentistry, we believe that visiting the dentist should be a pleasant and stress-free experience. Our team is friendly and welcoming, and it is our goal to exceed your expectations every time you visit us. Here’s what you can expect at your first visit to Thomas Family Dentistry.
A Thorough Examination
You will meet one of our highly skilled and caring dentists on your first visit to our practice. They perform a thorough examination, complete with x-rays, to determine if there are concerns that would require dental treatment.
If you have treatment needs, we will always take the time to explain this to you and offer you all the options you have for restoring your teeth and your oral health. You are always empowered to make the right decisions for your own needs, and we will answer any questions you may have about recommended treatment procedures.
A Gentle Cleaning
Our hygienist will also perform a gentle, yet thorough, cleaning to remove the excess plaque buildup that causes gum disease and tooth decay. This is an excellent time to ask your hygienist any questions you may have about your oral health or proper brushing and flossing techniques.
The Importance of Six Month Visits
For most patients, we recommend that you visit us for cleaning and checkup appointments every six months, or twice per year. Those who struggle with gum disease may require additional cleanings throughout the year to help them successfully manage their condition.
These preventative appointments are essential for maintaining your oral health and detecting any concerns in their earliest stages so you can be proactive about treating them with less invasive procedures.
