Hearing strange noises and having someone work inside your mouth can understandably cause a lot of stress and anxiety. But not to worry, we’re here to tell you exactly what will be going on from start to finish the next time you visit your dentist for a routine checkup. After all, the more you know about something, the less scary it seems!
The first person you’ll meet during your dental appointment is the receptionist. They make things flow smoothly around the office, coordinate payments and appointments, and give you your notifications for when you’re supposed to come in next. We have a lot of love for the dental receptionists of the world.
The next person you’ll meet after checking in for your dental appointment is your dental nurse. They provide excellent help with the preparation work, with assisting dentists during procedures, and the sterilization of dental instruments.You can think that dental nurses as the truly unsung heroes of a dental practice!
Before anything is done inside your mouth your dentist needs to know about your medical history if this is your first appointment at the dental practice or, if you have been to the practice before, any changes in your healthsuch as new medications, diabetes, arthritis, pregnancy, etc. It is important that your dental care team knows about any health concerns, anxieties, or allergies you may have in order to avoid incident and to make sure you get the kind of care you need.
To help your dentist see behind and between teeth and gums, your dentist will use a metal probe with small angles mirror. He will also use this to check for the softening of tooth enamel and dentin.They will also be on the lookout for the swelling of gums in any areas, mouth sores, and redness.
The last thing to do is take x-ray pictures of your mouth so the dentist can see if there are any issues below the mouth’s surface. This involves biting down on a piece of specially designed plastic while an x-ray imaging machine is placed against your cheek. The resulting image will show the visible parts of your teeth as well as the roots below the gum line and your jaw bones, allowing your dentist to see exactly what is happening in your mouth and assign your oral care as needed.
Your dentist will let you know exactly what is going on in your mouth and will advise you about next best procedures best for you. Sometimes this involves scheduling another dental appointment for a procedure while other times your dentist will give you advice about what you can do at home to better your oral health. Listening to this advice is very imporant and putting it into action as best you can to ensure that your next checkup is the best it can be.
The final step of the routine dental checkup is scheduling your next one for a date six months in the future. Scheduling your next appointment right away is the easiest and most effective way to ensure that you don’t forget to have your dental checkup regularly. Even if you are diligent in your personal dental care, there is no better protection against oral issues than having your mouth professionally cleaned and monitored by a dentist.
Take a trip to the front desk and once again you’ll be helped out by a smiling and attentive receptionist. And, as always, if you have any questions or concerns about any part of your visit or your upcoming scheduled visits, make sure to let them know. Trust us, they don’t bite. We’re very strict about that sort of thing.

What Is It? Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. What It's Used For
A filling is a proedure to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.
Dental cleanings involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. Your teeth are continually soaked in saliva which contains calcium and other substances which help strengthen and protect the teeth.
