Oftentimes, patients are intimidated and frightened by their dental cleaning appointments. If you could be considered as one of these people, our Sami Y. Nouhad, DDS team is here to tell you that you should not be afraid. In fact, we would like to help you look forward to your appointment by telling you what to expect. When you come into our office, you will experience:
1. A warm welcome: We want you to feel at home at our office, which is why we’ll greet you with a warm smile as you walk through our doors. When it’s your turn, our team will guide you through the office back to your comfortable dental chair. At this time, we will review your medical history and ask you any necessary questions. This is a good time for you to ask us questions as well.
2. A dental cleaning: First, we will deeply clean your teeth with a special tool that removes the plaque and tartar from the surface of your smile. This is a beneficial technique that lowers your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Next, we will check and measure your gum pockets for any signs of trouble. Third, we will floss between each crevice of your smile and will remove any plaque and food particles that reside there. Finally, we will polish your chompers with a polishing treatment.
3. A fluoride treatment: Fluoride is a beneficial mineral that gives your teeth the strength they need to survive, which is why we provide a fluoride treatment at our office. This treatment will come in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish and it will most likely be flavored. We will place the fluoride over your smile and will wait for the minerals to soak into your chompers. When the treatment has done its job, you will rinse your mouth with cool, refreshing water.
