Why Should I Make an Appointment?

This will vary from person to person, depending on what unique services you need to make your oral health 100 percent. Talk with your dentist to determine what services you need to stay healthy. More than likely, a routine dental exam and cleaning is an appointment almost everyone can make before the end of the year – this is a preventive care appointment.

Check over your insurance plan to learn if your insurance covers multiple cleanings every year. If so, make the most of your dental benefits by getting your cleaning in before the holiday-craziness begins and schedules tighten. Also, if you have questions for your dentist or you are curious about the status of your oral health, a routine check-up is the perfect way to learn about your teeth’s health and ask questions.

Appointment Types – Preventative and Elective Services

Appointments can often be categorized into two groupings – preventative and elective services.

Preventative Dentistry Services

Preventative dentistry is all about maintaining oral care and preventing oral health problems down the line. This often includes regular cleanings, regular oral exams, routine x-rays, and a oral cancer screening. Dental insurance plans often fully cover preventative care services and appointments. You can also help maintain your oral health at home by brushing twice a day and flossing once a day.

  • Preventive Dentistry Treatments often include dental cleanings twice a year and the main goal is to prevent any oral health issues from happening. It’s so important to see your dentist twice a year so they can assess your oral health and provide you with a professional cleaning.
  • Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments are all about enhancing the look and feel of your smile. These treatments are great confidence boosters, and often include our ClearCorrect braces, veneers, etc.
  • Restorative Dentistry Treatments often happen with your oral health needs restored or corrected. Maybe you chipped your tooth, lost a tooth, etc. and may require surgery. Dental crowns, root canals, and dentures are restorative treatments.
