The American Dental Association recommends a routine dental visit every six months. With each visit to Alcovy Dental, you can rest assured that you’re taking your oral health seriously. Regular professional cleanings, screenings and evaluations help ensure your dental health is on the right track. Attending your dentist appointments also helps you stay on schedule with cleanings, as you’ll likely book your next visit in our office.
Even if you aren’t having any serious issues with your gums, teeth or mouth, we recommend never skipping dental appointments. Routine dental visits mean a lifetime of dental health, and are a great form of preventive care.
What to Expect From Your Visit
When you arrive at our office, you can expect to be greeted by friendly staff who will sign you in. If it’s your first visit with us, there will be some paperwork and discussion about dental insurance if applicable. You may spend a few minutes in our comfortable waiting area while our hygienists and dentists prepare for your visit. Unless you’re coming to us for a specialty appointment, most of your appointments with Alcovy Dental will include:
During your routine cleaning with Alcovy Dental, your experienced dental hygienist will perform the following:
- Checking overall health of your teeth and gums
- Removing any plaque and tartar
- Polishing your teeth
- Flossing the hard-to-reach areas between your teeth
The average person cannot clean their teeth as thoroughly as the dental hygienists at Alcovy Dental. After your biannual deep cleaning, you’ll be able to keep your dental hygiene on track at home much easier and with more confidence.
One of the most important parts of your routine visits to Alcovy Dental is the overall oral evaluation. We’ll screen your mouth for cavities, gum disease, oral cancer and more. You’ll be able to receive all necessary X-rays in our office and also receive an evaluation of any dental appliances you use. Our competent team will check for damaged fillings, crowns, bridges and more, while also ensuring you don’t have any loose, broken or decaying teeth. Lastly, we’ll evaluate your face, neck, lymph nodes and lower jaw joints for any discomfort or abnormalities.
During your appointment, you’ll also have the chance to talk with our team about any concerns you may have about your oral health. We’re here to talk you through any reasons for concern or potential issues found in your mouth. We also always talk you through our treatment processes before any procedures are performed. The experts at Alcovy Dental are dedicated to meeting you wherever you are in your dental health journey, so don’t hesitate to be honest. We want to help you start and maintain a lifetime of good oral health habits.
