At San Angel Dental in Anaheim, we provide high-quality dentistry and compassionate service to all of our customers. We want to grow your confidence in us by explaining what you can typically expect during a dental visit, so read on to learn some of the basics.
What is the process of a normal dental exam?
What can you expect if you’re coming to San Angel Dental for the first time? We strive to provide the highest-quality service for all our customers, and we want to make your visit as easy as possible! We offer many different treatments, and while everyone’s dental visit may vary, here are some basics you can expect to encounter during a routine dental exam.
An evaluation of your overall health and dental hygiene
- Dental health is also extremely important for your overall health and well-being! Poor dental hygiene can lead to poor health in other areas of your body, including cardiovascular disease, pneumonia, and other complications. This is why it’s so important to maintain your dental health and visit the dentist regularly. At San Angel Dental, we are here to help you keep your health in tip-top shape.
An evaluation of your risk of dental disease or tooth decay
- There are a lot of different considerations when it comes to your oral health! Without proper oral maintenance and care, you could be at risk of complications with your teeth, roots, gums, and bones. In a routine dental exam, all these areas are examined to ensure nothing is wrong.
- You can also expect to leave the dentist office with the confidence that comes with a tooth cleaning! A common part of a dental exam is cleaning your teeth and/or removing stains.
We tailor services to our individual customers, and will recommend follow-up appointments or other dental procedures as necessary. You can rest easy knowing we will take care of all your dental health needs.
Preparing for Your Appointment
If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, or you are coming in for a procedure you’ve never had before, it’s common to be dealing with some nervousness. This is absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about! At San Angel Dental, we are more than happy to help at every step of the process and explain how everything works.
Of course, there are many different procedures you could be visiting the dentist to address. To learn more about the services we can provide, and how your dental experience may vary between them, visit the Our Services tab on our website.
To make your next dentist appointment go as smoothly as possible, here are some actions you can take before stepping foot in the office.
Brush and Floss!
- This may seem obvious, but it’s always a nice courtesy and a time-saver to ensure you have properly brushed and flossed your teeth shortly before arriving at your appointment. Your dentist will also appreciate it if you refrain from eating anything especially pungent right before the appointment!
Be honest about any fears
- A trustworthy dentist like those at San Angel Dental can assure your comfort during your visit at every step of the process. Mention any anxieties you may be having, and your dentist will work with you to find a solution to ensure you have a great experience.
Have necessary paperwork and information ready beforehand
- In order to avoid any unnecessary delays and ensure your peace of mind, it’s a great idea to make sure you know all your patient information before arriving. After you schedule your appointment, gather this information in one place. If you’re a new patient, make sure you transfer your dental records to your new dentist by contacting your old dentist office, and inform your dentist of any relevant medical history.
- You should also consider what your method of payment will be. At San Angel Dental, we will work with you and your dental insurance to make sure everyone has access to dental treatment that works for them. We will submit all insurance forms for you, and work with you on a payment plan if necessary. Dental health is extremely important, and everyone deserves quality, affordable treatment.
Now that you know a little more about what to expect during your dental visit, we hope you choose San Angel Dental in Anaheim for your dental needs. Our knowledge of dental hygiene, full-service dentistry, and pediatric dentistry makes us an ideal choice the next time you need to schedule an appointment.
