It’s about time for your routine dental appointment with our dentists and team. You may be wondering what to expect at your six-month appointments. We are more than happy to give you a rundown of your upcoming appointment.
Professional Dental Cleaning
When you come in to New Hampshire Center for Comprehensive Dentistry, your teeth will be professionally cleaned of plaque and tartar. These cleanings help keep your gum tissues healthy. Your teeth will then be flossed and polished.
Our dentists will then examine each of your teeth and your gums for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues. During cavity detection, our dentists will look for visible signs of decay as well as any indication that the tooth enamel has softened. To determine the health of your gums, our dentists will measure the pockets between your teeth and gums.
Depending on your age, dental health, and other factors, our dentists may decide to take dental X-rays during your appointment. Dental X-rays help us to see anything that is not apparent to the naked eye, like the tooth roots.
Dental Hygiene Instruction
Our hygienist and dentists may go over some of your specific home care needs. They may give tips on proper brushing or flossing, advise you on foods to avoid, or tell you about some good snacking choices.
We encourage you to contact our office at 603-672-6546 today to learn more about your upcoming dental cleaning in Amherst, New Hampshire, and to schedule your next visit.
