Check-ups

Great oral health starts here, with a complete dental exam for patients. Based on this initial exam, your dentist will create your customized dental treatment plan, which will be a guide for you and your dental team going forward in order to give you a healthy mouth.

While the services you’ll receive may vary, here’s what you can expect at your first dental checkup:

  • A conversion with your dentist

  • Oral Exam with intraoral scanner

  • X-rays (if required)

  • Review of your medical history

  • A comprehensive treatment plan

Your dentist will tailor your comprehensive treatment plan, including your hygiene appointments, based on your initial exam. Treatment could begin as soon as the day following your initial exam.

Emergencies

Here are guidelines on how to handle common oral discomforts and injuries, and when these require emergency dental care or services:

  • Toothache: See your emergency dentist as soon as you feel discomfort or pain.
  • Broken, chipped or cracked tooth: Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to your face. Go to the dentist right away. If the tooth was broken or chipped, bring the tooth fragment wrapped in wet gauze or a wet towel.
  • Loosened or knocked-out tooth: If your tooth becomes loose due to trauma, call your dentist. 
  • Broken Jaw: Apply ice or a cold compress to the face. Go to your dentist or an emergency center immediately.
  • Bitten Tongue or Lip: Clean the area with a wet cloth and place a cold compress on the area to reduce swelling. If the bleeding persists or if it is excessive, go to your dentist or an emergency center.
