Your First Visit:
During your first appointment, we will review you health history, perform a thorough dental examination, take the appropriate dental x-rays, and discuss our findings with you. We will also clean your teeth and gums and review any possible needed treatment as well.  Please bring a list of any medications you are taking as well as any questions or desires you have regarding your teeth and their treatment.  Also, feel free to discuss any concerns or desires you may have regarding your dental care.

After a cleaning appointment:
Your teeth will feel smooth and clean!  If your hygienist performed a deep cleaning with numbing, your gums may be tender or slightly sore when the numbing wears off.  Warm salt-water rinses and analgesics (Tylenol or Advil) will be very helpful.  Of course, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

After a filling or a crown:
While your mouth is still numb, take care not to bite your cheek or tongue.  Its best not to eat until the numbing sensation is gone to prevent this.  Stick to a soft diet for 24 hours after a filling to allow the filling to completely “harden.”  Be careful with a temporary crown and avoid overly hard or sticky foods.  If the temporary crown comes off, call us and we will replace it.  If your new filling or crown feels “high” when you bite, let us know right away.  Advil or Tylenol can help to ease any post operative discomfort.  Always call us if you have any questions or concerns.
