So, are you getting ready to go to your dental
appointment, and you’re just curious on what to expect. Well, my name is Michelle, and
I’m a dental assistant with Solutionz, and I’m going to explain to you on what you should
expect when you go see your dentist. Pretty much it always depends on the office policy,
but nine times out of ten for your first visit you should at least expect them to take x-rays.
Also, you would need to; there’s a couple different types of x-rays that they might
want to take. They might want to take is what we call is four bite wing x-rays, and these
x-rays are great because it determines and it shows you if you have any cavities in between
your teeth. Then, the doctor will definitely do his thorough exam with his mirror and explorer.
The explorer will will kind of dig around on in your teeth, kind of catch and determine
if you have any cavities. If the little explorer, if it gets stuck in the pits and fissures
of your teeth that’s usually a good sign that you have a cavity, so therefore… And then
also too, depending on your office policy they might want to give you a good thorough
cleaning, and then address the cavities that you might have. So, the main things really
to expect are x-rays, a doctor’s exam, and a cleaning for your first initial visit. Once
again, My name’s Michelle. I’m a dental assistant with Solutionz, and I just explained to you
on what you should expect at your dental visit.
