What to expect at your first visit
Your first visit at Avery Ranch Dental consists of three important parts:
Comprehensive Oral Evaluation
In order to give you the best dental care possible, we need to understand your current state of oral health. We will gather comprehensive information about your mouth, gums, teeth, and jaws through an oral evaluation by one of our dentists, digital images, and measurements of your gums. Our thorough evaluation includes assessing the health of the teeth and gums, as well as an oral cancer screening and a TMJ examination.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
You will also see one of our skilled dental hygienists for a gentle, yet thorough, professional teeth cleaning. This cleaning will remove all of the bacterial buildup from the teeth, thus giving you a “clean slate” for your home care. Professional teeth cleanings give you fresh breath, healthier gums, and a lower risk for cavities.
If the information we gather shows any dental concerns (both those you are aware of and those you may not know), we will put together a plan with multiple treatment options. The goal of dental treatment is to stop the progression of dental diseases and prevent future disease from developing. Our treatment recommendations always include patient education. When you understand your dental problems, you can make good, educated decisions on which treatment option is best for you.
