Healthy smiles begin with good oral hygiene and regular dental appointments. At Capital Dental Center, we understand that a first visit, whether you are a child or adult, should be a positive and even enjoyable experience. In many cases, your first visit can set the tone for future appointments. From your first visit to the last, we strive to ensure you receive the best possible care!
The Importance of Routine Appointments
Unfortunately, daily brushing and flossing aren't enough to prevent certain dental problems. Routine appointments with us can help you avoid the two most common oral health issues: tooth decay and gum disease. Both of these problems are caused by the bacteria in your mouth, which we keep at bay during each visit.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends scheduling a dental appointment about every six months. However, some people have fears or anxiety that prevents them from scheduling routine visits. Our comfortable atmosphere, painless treatment techniques, and treatment with sedation can help alleviate your anxiety.
Your Initial Exam
Your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive examination, dental cleaning, and obtaining x-rays in order to assess your oral health and present a sound treatment plan if necessary.
To ensure the highest quality of care, please provide us with the following information prior to the time of your consultation:
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
If we diagnose any dental problems during your initial exam, we will recommend additional treatments. Depending on the severity of your issue, you may need to schedule a follow-up appointment. Kiarash Saba DMD will develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses your oral health issues in a safe, comfortable, and effective manner.
Be sure to ask questions and voice concerns during your appointment. Patient education is the cornerstone of excellent oral health and can help you prevent any issues from developing into major complications. In the meantime, restorative treatments like dental fillings and crowns can get your smile back on track.
