If you’re one who likes to plan for your dental appointments, our Smiles Dental team is happy to help you! The more you know about your dental cleaning, the more comfortable you will feel when you come in to visit your dentist. So, when you come in for your appointment, you can expect:
1. A warm welcome: To help you feel comfortable at our office, we will welcome you with a warm and friendly smile when you come through our doors. We will then guide you through our office and take you to your comfortable dental chair. When you sit down, we will review your medical history and ask you any necessary questions pertaining to your oral health and cleaning. If you have any questions for our team, this is a good time to ask us.
2. A dental cleaning: When you are ready, we will deeply clean your smile by scraping the surfaces of your teeth with a special tool. This will help remove the plaque and tartar that threatens to destroy your oral health with tooth decay and gum disease each day. Then, we will clean the hard-to-reach areas of your smile by flossing each crevice. This will also help remove plaque. Finally, we will put the finishing touches on your smile by polishing your pearly whites.
3. A fluoride treatment: If you want a strong and healthy smile, fluoride is the key. This mineral strengthens and nourishes your chompers and helps them survive on a regular basis. This is why we provide a fluoride treatment at our office. The treatment will come in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish and it will most likely be flavored. We will put the fluoride over your smile and will wait for the minerals to soak into your teeth. When the time is up, you will rinse and wash your mouth.
Please call 360-589-5054 if you have any questions or if you would like to know more about the exam section of your checkup. Our team will be more than happy to help you understand more about dental care and maintenance. We look forward to helping you!
