Regular trips to the dentist are important. During each visit, we carefully clean and examine your teeth, gums, and mouth to ensure you are in good health. Because education is so important to us, we are committed to explaining our findings and treatment options, so you can confidently care for your oral health. By visiting New Roc Dental regularly, we can ensure your smile is happy and disease-free!
What Will My Visit Be Like?
Your visit will begin with a professional cleaning by one of our skilled dental hygienists. First, we will clean any plaque and tartar from your teeth. This will help prevent cavities and gum disease. We will also floss and polish your teeth, so you can go home with a bright, gorgeous smile!
During your cleaning, your hygienist will look for signs of dental disease or infection. Once they have finished, they will discuss any findings or concerns with your dentist.
Dr. Wynter will begin her exam with a consultation. Feel free to tell her about any of your concerns, or about any pain and discomfort you are experiencing. During her exam, she will check for signs of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, swelling, discoloration, etc. She will also check your facial muscles and the lymph nodes beneath your jawline. If necessary, she may recommend a digital X-ray or intraoral screening to check in hard-to-see areas of the mouth.
What Should I Do If You Find a Problem?
If we happen to find an oral health issue during your exam, don’t worry! We will explain our findings and walk you through all of your options. Our team will also review your financing and insurance information to help you find the best treatment for your budget. You can rest assured that we will do everything possible to help you find an appropriate treatment to fit your health, budget, and preferences.
How Often Should I Come to the Dentist?
At New Roc Dental, we recommend coming in for a routine visit at least twice per year. This will help us keep your mouth clean and free of plaque, tartar, and infection. It will also allow us to check for signs of other problems like oral cancer. With dental health problems, the earlier we begin treatment the better.
Depending on your oral health, Dr. Wynter may recommend more frequent visits. Of course, if you are experiencing any unusual pain or discomfort, or have suffered from a serious injury, call our office right away. Do not wait for your next routine visit in the case of a dental emergency.
How Do I Care for My Teeth at Home?
Taking care of your teeth at home is a very important part of maintaining a healthy smile. We recommend brushing and flossing at least twice each day. Use toothpaste and mouthwash that include fluoride and always avoid chewing on hard foods and objects like ice.
