Your First Appointment With A New Dentist

Starting dental care in a new area, or restarting preventive services after a longer break, will be important. If you want to take proper care of your smile and preserve your overall health, dental checkups and cleanings will remain important. Returning after a prolonged absence, or taking the steps to keep up with care, will help you lower your risk for cavities and gum disease. It will also ensure that if you do have problems, they are identified and treated as soon as possible. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office is here to help people stay on top of their smile care needs. Because we provide pediatric dental care as well as services for adults, we can actually serve as the only practice you need to make sure everyone in your family is supported!

How Long Have You Gone Between Dental Visits?

Unless your dentist identifies a reason why you should follow something different, you should schedule routine dental exams every six months. Sticking with this routine will help you in many important ways. It keeps you protected against plaque and tartar buildup, which lowers your risk of experiencing problems that will demand professional dental treatment. It also provides early detection and treatment when a new problem has formed. You may not realize when a cavity has formed, and you can overlook the early warning signs of gum disease. As these problems worsen, they can cause more severe issues that will require more involved treatment.

Receiving A Thorough Oral Health Review

Whether you have gone longer than recommended without treatment, or you are coming to a new location in order to stay current with your checkups, we can help. During your evaluation, we will look for any problems that may have developed – any issues that we find can be treated before they worsen. By providing a thorough teeth cleaning, we can lower your risk for experiencing any more trouble, and we can address tartar accumulation. If necessary, we can take the important step of providing a periodontal cleaning to deal with gingivitis and stop an infection from worsening.

Our Practice Is Here To Help Patients Of All Ages

We can serve more than just adults at our practice, as we do offer pediatric dental appointments. We can make sure your child feels welcomed, safe, and comfortable when they see us for the first time. In addition to establishing positive relationships with our young patients, we can provide early guidance on smile care that helps them do a better job caring for their teeth on their own!
