Your First Dental Appointment

Before your first appointment in our office, make sure that you bring the following:

  • Patient Forms
  • Valid Payment Method
  • Insurance Cards
  • Photo ID

We will provide a cleaning and dental x-rays at routine appointments every six months. You may also ask us any questions about your treatment options. In addition, we’re here to help you learn about your oral health and make recommendations as needed. 

Dental Cleaning

We will perform a complete dental examination of the teeth and gums before the cleaning. During this examination, we look for any signs of gum disease, tooth decay, or other common dental problems. We will inform you if we see areas of concern or developing dental issues. 

During a dental cleaning, we remove plaque and tartar buildup using specialized dental tools. As a result, our hygienists can reach areas of the smile that are often difficult to clean at home.

We also use gritty toothpaste to clean the teeth and floss between each tooth. Finally, we rinse, polish the teeth, and use a fluoride mouthwash. Dr. Shayota will then thoroughly examine the teeth and gums, looking for any emerging dental problems. 

Dental X-rays

While we won’t take dental x-rays at every appointment, we will recommend they to keep track of your oral health and any emerging dental problems. In addition, modern digital x-rays are valuable diagnostic tools because they can see what we can’t with a visual exam.

Using dental x-rays, we can prepare patients for orthodontic treatment, find where to place dental implants, and even find wear in the jaw due to TMD.

New Patient FAQs

Read answers to common questions that patients have about their dental care: 

What are the most common dental problems?

Some of the most common dental problems that patients can experience include: 

  • Tooth Sensitivity
  • Gum Bleeding and Recession
  • Toothaches
  • Cavities
  • Worn Tooth Enamel

While these problems are common, they affect the health and function of the smile. So don’t hesitate to contact our office if you notice changes in your smile; we’re here to help.

How can I improve my oral hygiene?

Before you brush your teeth, floss to remove food debris and plaque between the teeth. Brush your tongue to combat bad breath. Harmful bacteria can collect on the tongue. If you have a dental restoration like a dental crown, dental bridge, or dentures, you can use an interdental brush to get a better clean.   

Why are regular dental appointments necessary?

We recommend biannual dental visits for our patients so we can keep track of their dental problems and provide thorough dental cleanings. Sometimes, you can’t reach bacterial buildup in certain parts of the smile, especially if you have crooked or overcrowded teeth.

Regular dental cleanings every six months provide a deep clean. Additionally, some oral health problems are hard to see without technology, like dental x-rays that show issues we cannot see with a visual examination.
