We carefully schedule our dental checkups so our patients have plenty of time to discuss concerns with our caring staff. During your appointment, Dr. Bill Hall or the hygienist will clean your teeth and identify gum inflammation or bone loss. We will evaluate your risk of developing tooth decay and other oral health problems, as well as check your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities. Because we take our time with our patients, there’s no reason to feel anxious about your appointment. We will discuss all of our findings and recommendations, explaining all of your options so we can make the right decision together. This might include suggesting dental X-rays or other diagnostic procedures if necessary.
Throughout our conversation, we’ll discuss your diet and oral hygiene habits and demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques. Other topics that may come up during your dental checkup might include:
- Any medications you’re taking
- Use of tobacco products
- Consequences of tooth loss
- Benefits of crowns, fixed bridges or dental implants
- Use of dentures
- Cosmetic procedures such as whitening and bonding
At our office, we operate with the latest technology but we don’t forget to offer our patients old-fashioned TLC. If you’re looking for a friendly dentist in Frederick, MD, then come on in. You can trust that you’ll receive the finest dental treatment available – with a smile.
