If you are dreading your next dental appointment, then take comfort in the fact that most dental visits are fairly straightforward and won't require much of your time or energy. Spending an hour or so at Genesis Dental can go a long way towards preserving and improving your oral and overall health.
Exam and Cleaning
Most appointments will begin with a routine examination and teeth cleaning. During this examination, your dentist will assess the overall health and appearance of your teeth, mouth, and gums. They will provide you with information on the dental options available to you and what you need to maintain or improve your smile.
These standard appointments are virtually painless and can typically be completed in under an hour. If you feel particularly nervous or anxious about your upcoming dental appointment, then you may consider sedation dentistry. This will allow you to enjoy a state of deep relaxation while the dentist completes any necessary dental work.
Your Child’s First Appointment
Your child's first appointment will be much different than your first appointment with a new dentist. It is important to find a pediatric dentist who specializes in family dentistry and can meet your child's unique dental needs. They tend to have a gentle touch and a friendly demeanor that can help to instantly put your child at ease. They also tend to have a more child-friendly office and can even assist with certain bad habits, such as thumb sucking.
Schedule an Appointment Today
Your first appointment is basically a consultation and will provide you with time to speak with the dentist about which options are available to you. If you don’t feel comfortable with your dentist of choice, then you don’t need to continue visiting them after the first appointment.
Call Genesis Dental or your local dentist to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Small dental problems, such as tartar build up, can quickly become a serious problem that requires extensive dental work, if you don't visit the dentist as often as you should. To save yourself time, money, and frustration on future dental visits, make sure to visit your local dentist at least once every six months, or as often as recommended.
