During Your Appointment
First visits at Rock Point Family Dentistry begin with a comprehensive dental exam and x-rays. We use digital x-rays for your safety and convenience. After you have been comfortably seated in the dental chair and introduced to those who will be providing your oral care, you will meet the hygienist who will check your teeth and gums for issues. Your teeth will also be cleaned at this time. A thorough, professional cleaning is a deterrent against gingivitis or gum disease.
If the hygienist finds that gum disease has already started, you will be so advised, and next steps will be suggested. In its earliest stages, gingivitis is easily treatable. Treatment begins with a deep cleaning of the teeth and gums.
After your teeth are cleaned, your dentist will review the results of your preliminary exam and perform a more in-depth exam of your entire mouth. The final results will determine the next steps in your oral care. Your dentist will share the results and recommendations with you. If there are any concerns that need to be addressed, those will be shared at this time.
We welcome any questions you may have regarding your dental health and/or recommended procedures for you or your children. If you have dental concerns that have not been mentioned, please be sure to bring them to our attention. We want to help you meet your dental health goals.
