Meeting with Dentist
You will meet either with Dr Payal Kshatriya DDS or other qualified experienced dentists and they will go over with your medical history, oral health worries or concerns. We will make sure your are comfortable sharing all details. We encourage you to ask questions and this open communication will help you relieve any anxiety or nervousness feeling. Our rooms are equipped with TV with FireTV with Bluetooth headsets and ask any of our staff members for assistance.
The typical first-time dental visit includes bitewing x-rays, a comprehensive oral exam and a dental cleaning.
You will probably need dental x-rays … unless you have had them recently and have brought them with you or asked your previous dentist to send them. No dentist can or will start working on you without getting a good perspective on what’s going on in your mouth. We use modern dental x-ray equipment that emits virtually no radiation, so you have no reason to be concerned about that, and most of the newer equipment isn’t as uncomfortable because the material you hold in your mouth is smaller and smoother. we may suggest a new panoramic type of x-ray, often called Panorex or Pano, which can show both your upper and lower jaw in one picture. This can be helpful in diagnosing bite and alignment issues. If you are visiting for Dental Implants or Impacted Wisdom Tooth Extraction, CT Scan may be recommended.
Know each other
You should be prepared to tell our dentist what previous treatment you have had. Although much will be evident when our dentist will look in your mouth and at your x-rays, it is a good idea to share some details about what’s been done already.
Be ready to talk about any current dental problems you may be having. If this is a get-acquainted visit or you just need to get your teeth cleaned, more power to you. However, many adults wait till something is up, and any treatment plan should start with everything that is bothering you.
If you have any health issues or are currently taking medication for a condition like diabetes, heart disease or hypertension, be sure to let your dentist know about it. Many tooth and gum problems are related to medical issues and their treatment. Our dentist will also examine your teeth and gums, looking for cavities or other problems.
Oral Cancer Screening
Our dentist recommends having an oral cancer screening at least once each year. Regular screenings can help ensure early detection of any potential cancers. During your oral cancer screening, our dentist will check for any abnormalities. We will closely examine your mouth, throat, lips, gums, and tongue. Read More.
Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that helps rebuild tooth enamel and reverse early signs of tooth decay. Your body takes in fluoride in two ways: systemically and topically. Systemic fluorides are swallowed, including fluoridated water (most tap water) and dietary fluoride supplements. Topical fluoride is applied directly to the teeth via toothpaste, mouth rinses and treatments at the our dental office. Fluoride helps repair weakened tooth enamel by replenishing lost calcium and phosphate — minerals naturally present in saliva. These minerals also make your teeth more resistant to future decay.
Fluoride treatments applied by a dentist are especially good for people with a higher risk for tooth decay or erosion. If you have dry mouth, weak enamel, poor oral health or if you have crowns, ask your dentist if applying a fluoride varnish would help protect your teeth.
Often, your first visit will include teeth cleaning, though if it’s been a while since you last had your teeth cleaned, you may need to be scheduled for a longer visit at a later time. If you have a perio condition, your will be recommended deep cleaning (gum therapy) and not regular cleaning.
An added advantage of modern equipment is your dentist’s ability to see your x-ray results on the computer, immediately. That will speed up the diagnosis process. Our dentist will discuss the comprehensive dental treatment plan she developed that is specifically for you and is designed to prevent smaller issues from getting bigger and more expensive in future.
Treatment plan and payment options
After our dentist talked you about possible treatment plan, our front desk will answer any questions you may have and will go over the treatment plan, pricing and payment options available. If you are using your dental insurance, they will go over in details with coverage and predetermination. You will provided a clear, detailed estimate on the cost of your treatment plan. You may request digital copy of your dental treatment plan that includes the price quote for your recommended treatments. We recommend you to schedule future appointments before you leave our office.
