Guilt can be a powerful emotion, and it might be a reason for delaying a visit to the dentist. At Sindledecker Dentistry, we want you to feel comfortable and assure you that our environment is judgment-free. Returning to the dentist, even after an extended absence, can be more manageable than you might think. Here’s an overview of what you can expect during your first appointment back with us:
- Dental X-Rays: We’ll start with a series of dental X-rays, typically taken every three to five years based on your individual needs. These X-rays provide a detailed look at your dental structure, helping us identify any significant dental issues.
- Hygiene Appointment: The next step is your hygiene appointment, which includes a review of your medical history and a thorough teeth cleaning. This is an ideal time to discuss any concerns you may have about your oral health and ask questions.
- Comprehensive Exam: Following the hygiene appointment, you’ll undergo a comprehensive exam. Dr. Sindledecker and Dr. Saltz will review your medical history and address any remaining dental concerns. If specific treatments, such as addressing cavities or broken fillings, are necessary, we’ll discuss them with you.
- Payment and Scheduling: After the examinations and discussions, you’ll head to the front desk to talk about payment and schedule your next appointment. It’s a straightforward process that marks an important step in continuing to prioritize your dental health.
No matter the reasons for any lapses in dental care, we are here to assist you in getting back on track. Don’t let a brief hiatus define your oral health journey. Schedule an appointment at our Boca Raton office today, and let us help you maintain a healthy smile.
