Your First Visit
Many of our new patients have not been to the dentist for a while. But even if you’re up to date on your routine checkups and cleanings, are you sure your dentist is doing all he or she can to keep your whole body healthy?
The first time you visit us at Innovative Dental Care, Dr. Morris will discuss your health history, past dental experiences, and any related anxieties you may have about dental care. To help us serve you best, we need to know what your expectations and needs are for treatment. Urgent concerns, like pain or a broken tooth, will be addressed immediately!
We Don’t Rush Your Care
Please reserve approximately 90 minutes of your time for your first visit with us. First, we will take a set of x-rays to provide a comprehensive view of your entire mouth, including the roots of your teeth and your jawbones. A periodontal exam will follow to evaluate your gum health and to screen for gum recession. If your gums have no swelling or deep pockets, we will continue with a preventive cleaning. Finally, Dr. Morris will determine whether you need any type of restorative treatment and discuss your options for future dental treatment with you.
