Your First Visit To Main Street Dental Smiles
We will conduct a thorough examination during your first visit to determine the best course of action to achieve dental health and your goals. We will:
- Take full mouth x-rays to identify any current problems and to use it as a baseline on future visits to detect early signs of problems.
- Assess gum condition and health.
- Examine teeth for cavities and condition of old dental restorations.
- Perform a head and neck exam, including salivary glands and lymph nodes, for swelling or other abnormalities.
- Screen for oral cancer and TMJ (jaw joint).
- Clean and polish your teeth.
Your first visit includes a comprehensive exam in which our doctor will talk to you about your dental and medical history and note any questions or concerns you may have. Many health conditions are indicated in the mouth and can affect oral health, so your medical information is very important in diagnosing issues with your teeth, gums and mouth.
Diagnosis and Treatment Plan
After completing the checkup and cleaning, Dr. Schilling will talk to you about the findings, discuss a regular checkup schedule and dental treatment plan (if needed), and answer any questions or concerns you may have. If treatments require a specialist, we’ll give you a referral.
