What Can I Expect During a Dental Appointment?

If you have not been to the dentist in a while, you may feel unsure about what to expect during your visit with us. However, most dental check-ups are pretty similar to each other, with recommendations and next steps discussed based on a patient’s individual needs. Generally, additional care will not start immediately during your first check-up, but a timeline may be established.

During a typical dental check-up, you can expect the following:

  • Teeth cleaning and flossing performed by a hygienist
  • An oral examination, including a gum exam, oral cancer screening, and checking for loose or broken teeth
  • Tips for hygiene, if necessary
  • Recommendations for treatment of any dental issues
  • Discussion between patient and provider to determine a plan of action

If you have not had a check-up in some time or if some of your records are out of date, your dentist may also get an X-ray of your teeth.

Additionally, if there are any dental issues to note, your dentist will let you know about any diagnoses and steps for care moving forward. At this point, you can ask questions about changes you should make at home, discuss different treatment options, and rule out choices that do not work for your medical health or lifestyle.

How Often Should You Visit a General Dentist?

Generally, dentists recommend patients come in for a check-up at least twice per year or once every six months. Some individuals may benefit from coming in more frequently than twice a year, so your dentist may recommend coming in three, four, or more times annually.

Patients who are initially asked to come in more frequently throughout the year may eventually reduce their number of visits by improving their dental hygiene practices. We recommend brushing for at least two minutes twice a day, using a soft or medium bristle toothbrush, flossing at least once a day, and following other instructions provided by your dental provider.
