Preparing For Your Dental Check Up with Family & Implant Dental Care

We hope you choose Family & Implant Dental Care when you schedule your dental exam. It is an easy process. First, call to make an appointment to visit our office and talk to our friendly staff. Second, we highly recommend you interview us to be your new dental care family. During the interview process, you want to determine if your health plans lists us as a provider. Third, you want to make sure you understand our fees and payment options and discuss any billing questions or concerns you might have.

In addition to providing optimum dental care to you, Family & Implant Dental Care wants to make you as relaxed as possible during your dental exam. You should not feel anxious about having your dental exam. By sharing your concerns with Dr. Koch or your hygienist, they can determine what adjustments to your treatment may help you feel less anxious. Family & Implant Dental Care main concern is to provide compassionate yet comprehensive dental care. Our dental team is highly trained in sedation dentistry. They know how to make your dental check up a comfortable and anxiety-free experience.

During Your Dental Check Up

During your dental check up, Family & Implant Dental Care uses a dental exam checklist. Their goal is to determine your overall oral health; therefore, they

  • Evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene
  • Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, root decay, and gum or bone disease
  • Evaluate your need for tooth restoration using fillings or crowns, or tooth replacement using dentures or dental implants, if needed.
  • Check your bite and jaw alignment for problems
  • Demonstrate proper cleaning techniques for your teeth or dentures
  • Assess how much fluoride you are getting through your diet and use of oral hygiene products
  • Take oral X-rays or performs other diagnostic procedures

During your dental exam, Dr. Koch or his hygienist may discuss with you any medical health issues you have. They may also inquire about the medications you take, if any, and discuss how those medications may affect your oral health and ongoing dental care. For instance, if you are a diabetic, you are at increased risk for gum disease. Certain medications you may take, including antihistamines, antidepressants and high blood pressure drugs, might cause you to have dry mouth, which creates a high risk for tooth decay. If you suffer from arthritis and have limited mobility, the staff at Family & Implant Dental Care can show you how to make brushing and flossing easier. One easier technique for brushing is to insert the handle of your toothbrush into a rubber ball, or our dental team may suggest the use of an electric toothbrush when your mobility extremely limited.

If you have dentures, we will determine if your dentures still fit adequately. If not, we will make the necessary adjustments, providing a secure and comfortable fit.

Because we at Family & Implant Dental Care want to provide you with optimum overall dental care, we may also advise you on oral health risks associated with smoking, chewing tobacco, alcohol abuse, dietary choices, eating disorders, oral piercings, and not wearing a mouth guard during contact sports. As part of our dental family, we want to help you know the preventive measures you can take to avoid serious dental problems.
