A general dental examination and tooth cleaning can help you achieve and maintain excellent oral health. It is important to receive preventative care and have your dentist treat any problems as soon as they arise. Modern dentistry has made dental procedures comfortable and pain free. Your first dental visit will include a thorough history of your teeth and examination.
Your dentist will spend some time getting to know you and your mouth and will ask you about your general health because it can affect oral health. Your dentist will ask you about your medical and dental history. It is important to tell your dentist about any medical problems that you are having or have had as well as any dental health issues you have had.
