What can I expect as a new patient?


New patient exams take about an hour. We will take panoramic and bite wing digital x-rays. We will go over your medical and dental history and listen to what your concerns are. We do a head and neck exam, screen for oral cancer, and check your TMJ, teeth, fillings, gums. We will tell you what we have found and discuss possible options.

What to expect during an initial cleaning:


Our dental hygienists will clean your teeth using a variety of instruments, including an ultra-sonic scaler, hand scalers, and polish.

They will assess your home cleaning technique and offer suggestions, and techniques to help you get to where you would like to be. If you have any sensitive areas, or areas of decalcification or early decay, they may suggest a prescription fluoride, or other prescription.

After a cleaning, you may experience some gum tenderness, particularly if you have any gingivitis or periodontal disease. You can take a mild analgesic, such as Tylenol or Motrin, rinse with warm salt water, and use a soft brush to brush your gums for the first 24 hours. The discomfort should subside in 48 hours. If not, please call our office at
205-620-4300.
