WHAT TO EXPECT

How to prepare for your first visit

Your first visit to our office typically includes an X-ray that allows us to view the structure of your jaw, the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted, malformed roots, and tooth decay.

It will also involve getting your medical history. While giving this, please be sure to:

  • Provide complete up-to-date information on your health
  • Inform us if you’ve experienced recent hospitalization or surgery
  • Let us know if you’ve been recently ill
  • Tell us the name, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking
  • Provide the name of your physician
  • Inform us of any changes in your health or medications

Also, please prepare for your first appointment by completing our New Patient Information Form and by taking a look at our Privacy Policy.

 

The importance of regular checkups

We encourage regular checkups for individuals age four and up. Most people find that it is valuable to have a checkup at least every six months so Dr. Wright can:

  • Check for problems that you might not see or feel
  • Find early signs of decay
  • Treat oral health problems early, while they are still manageable

Regular checkups include a thorough cleaning, polishing, and an oral exam by the doctor. During the oral exam, Dr. Wright checks the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. At each visit, Dr. Wright also checks old fillings and restorations because constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack.

Regular checkup appointments typically take 30 to 60 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
