Has it been a while since you’ve last seen a dentist? Are you looking for a new dentist? First dental exam ever? No worries, we’ve got you covered.
As a new patient at North Seattle Dental, you might be wondering what to expect from your new patient dental exam.
Besides a friendly staff, comfortable surroundings and skilled dentists, you can expect a comprehensive dental exam that’s thorough and painless.
Your one hour exam will include both an evaluation and a consultation. Your dentist will look over the health of your teeth and gums, as well as check your bite jaw, screen for oral cancer and examine for any signs of gum disease or tooth decay, including look over any previous restorative dental work you may have. Your exam will also include digital x-rays, as well as photos of your teeth and your smile.
Your overall health and oral hygiene will be evaluated, including your health history, your diet and medications. During this time, you will also have an opportunity to discuss your dental concerns and long-term dental goals.
By fully evaluating your existing oral health and consulting with you, we’ll be able to determine what type of teeth cleaning treatment you might need, as well as help you develop and maintain an appropriate treatment plan that best suits your needs and expectations.
Keeping your teeth healthy and helping you make your smile stand out is our goal. We look forward to meeting you!
