The RCDG Difference…
New Patient Visit – How it Works
During your first visit we will take some digital X-Rays and see what’s going on inside of your mouth. Then, we’ll learn about your oral health goals and come up with a treatment plan.
Your Mouth, Your Decisions
Once we have shared our recommendations, we want you make the best decisions for yourself. We will never be pushy or recommend treatments that you do not need.
Typically a general cleaning will last around 60 minutes while one of our qualified hygienists gently cleans the surfaces of your teeth. The process rids your teeth of any built up tartar, plaque, and stains by using an ultrasonic water scaler and various manual scalers. The hygienist will then carefully examine your mouth for any existing or potential problems such as decay or periodontal disease.
HOW LONG WILL MY APPOINTMENT TAKE?
If you come in for regular cleanings, your appointment should last approximately 60 minutes. However, time may vary depending on your oral hygiene.
WILL IT HURT TO GET MY TEETH CLEANED?
New advances in the dental industry have allowed for a very comfortable experience during regular cleanings. However, some discomfort may be felt during cleaning near the gum line.
WHY DO I NEED TO GET MY TEETH CLEANED OFTEN?
A professional cleaning can get to places in your mouth that you can’t with a toothbrush of floss. It is important to rid your mouth of the harmful bacteria hiding below your gums.
WILL MY CLEANING BE COVERED BY MY INSURANCE?
Most of our treatments are covered by a majority of insurance companies. For a more detailed explanation of your coverage please call your service provider.
