How long will my appointment take?
Each appointment time varies depending on the procedure we are providing. For a new patient exam, x-rays, and professional dental cleaning, you can plan on approximately one hour.
At your new patient exam, we will make sure we have an up-to-date medical history and perform a full examination of your teeth, gums, and the inside of your mouth to look for any potential dental conditions that require our attention. We will also take x-rays to help us diagnose conditions we cannot see such as fractures, bone loss, decay, abscesses, cysts, and tumors.
Next, our gentle dental hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth, removing the calculus that collects on your teeth between cleanings. She will also alert you if she finds evidence of conditions such as gum disease and will help you take the next step to restoring your health.
We believe in a comprehensive approach to dental care, and we make sure that our first appointment with you creates a good foundation for a long-term professional relationship. You will also have time to bring your questions to our hygienist or Dr. Canepa and share any goals you might have regarding the health or beauty of your smile.
Give us a call to schedule your next preventive appointment at our Rocky River, OH dental office. We look forward to meeting you.
