During your initial meeting at our dental office, our dentist will thoroughly discuss with you the various treatments that we offer, including those that specifically suit your needs. They will guide you through the process and answer any questions that you may have about your oral health.
If you are pleased with the initial meeting, our team at Neibauer Dental Care will further assist you in scheduling an appointment for a formal checkup. Before the appointment, you will be required to fill out new patient forms along with providing any prior dental history records. We suggest that you arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to ensure that you have plenty of time to complete these forms.
Our office also provides the choice of filling out the forms before arriving at the clinic. This means that you may visit our website and fill out the enrollment forms online. This saves you time and ensures an efficient and effective visit. Patients can download the health history forms from our website and fill in all the required details.
This information will be stored in our database and evaluated prior to your session. Once our dentist reviews your health history forms and your appointment is set, you will be ready to meet our dentist again and begin your formal dental examination.
Our dentist will look for any sensitivity, decay and redness around the gums and teeth during the examination. Even though they will review your medical and dental history ahead of time, they may still ask you questions about your teeth while examining them. This is a common practice and can help our dentist identify anything unusual or any information not mentioned in the new patient forms.
After conducting the comprehensive exam, our dentist will take x-rays of your mouth to gain a clear picture of the status of your teeth and jaw. These scans are taken to better analyze oral disruptions, diseases and cavities. The x-rays are suggested to be performed either when there is a severe problem or as part of your routine visits. After the procedure, the x-rays will be stored in your file for future reference.
Once the initial dental checkup is completed, our dentist will discuss the results with you. They will explain any findings, such as irregularities or decay in your mouth, along with your overall oral health. From here, our dentist will recommend the most appropriate and detailed treatment plan for your specific needs, which is customized to your requirements and your dental issues. You will also have the opportunity to clarify any doubts or questions that you may have regarding your oral health.
After meeting our dentist at Neibauer Dental Care in Brandywine,Maryland, and discussing possible dental treatments in detail, we will schedule a follow-up session at your convenience. We suggest visiting our office twice a year to prevent any cavities, tooth decay or any other oral health issue. During these routine checkups, the teeth are usually cleaned and treated to ensure that they remain in good shape. In addition, during these routine check-ups, our dentist can track your oral health condition and work on any preventive procedure to keep your teeth in good shape.
