Regular Dental Checkup
Regular dental checkups are an essential part of maintaining a healthy smile. It’s a critical part of your oral health and something we recommend to all of our patrons. Dental checkups should be completed every six months to maintain proper, optimal health.
Regular Dental Checkups
As leading dental hygienists in Sarasota, FL, we believe in the power of teeth cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride to prevent dental disease. Our focus is on thorough dental care exams to check your teeth, gums, and overall health. At Sarasota Dental Arts, we are equally concerned about your smile as we are about your well-being.
You can expect a typical new patient hygiene and cleaning appointment to go as follows:
- Your dental hygienist will take you back to the exam room and will take any dental x-rays or photos that are necessary.
- Then your dental hygienist will perform a teeth cleaning, polish, floss, and fluoride. Your hygienist will also record overall oral conditions relating to oral and periodontal (gum) health.
- The doctor will meet with you and discuss any areas of concern you may have or we may want to address.
- Schedule any needed treatment or simply your next 6-month cleaning appointment.
Expect this first appointment to take between 1 hour and 1.5 hours, so that we don’t rush you through or provide too much information too quickly for you.
If you have any questions or would like to schedule your dental checkup, contact our office and we'll be happy to help.
