YOUR FIRST Dentist APPOINTMENT
Getting to Know You at the Marconi Dental Group
Your first dentist appointment at Marconi Dental Group establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important background information, like your medical history, and give you time to get to know your doctor. To understand what to expect for your first visit to our practice, please read through this page.
First Dentist Appointment For Acute Dental Care
If you need to see us for a specific acute need, please do not hesitate to visit our office at your earliest convenience. Whether it is a broken tooth, gum problems, swelling, or tooth pain, our staff is ready to see you to solve your immediate concerns. Our focus on that first visit will be to examine and identify your needs, discuss a plan of action, and get you back to your regular routine as soon as possible.
First Dentist Appointment For Regular Dental Care
Helping patients avoid acute dental problems is our goal and likely yours too. Here is where a comprehensive first dental visit is essential. Your first visit requires about sixty minutes to gather records and develop your treatment plan with our Carmichael dentists. We take a set of full mouth and panoramic x-rays to completely visualize your upper and lower jaw. Along with a full set of intraoral pictures, these images are very helpful to diagnose any problems not readily visible to the eye and to have a baseline set of images for comparison during future examinations. Our dentists also complete the following procedures:
- an oral cancer screening,
- an exam of your temporomandibular joints (TMJ),
- we look for signs of teeth grinding or excessive wear,
- we determine the overall health of your gums.
After the first exam is complete, if your condition is normal we recommend a follow-up cleaning appointment with our hygienist. If there are complications with your oral health, we will discuss an appropriate treatment plan. The important point is that we do more than check you in and check you out. The Marconi Dental Group takes the time to customize your care and offer the best possible procedures to achieve your optimal oral health.
