What should I expect at my dentist appointment?

During your appointment, your teeth will be cleaned and evaluated. We will ask you about your dental history.

My teeth feel fine. Do I still need to go to the dentist?
You should visit a dentist’s office at least once every six months. Unfortunately, dental concerns often have minor symptoms until they result in major damage to your teeth, gums, and jaw. It’s often hard for patients to tell on their own if something is wrong with their teeth until they experience unexpected tooth pain. When you regularly visit a dentist for cleanings and exams, you get the preventative care that your teeth need to maintain beautiful aesthetics and lifelong health.
