One of Downtown Concord Dental staff members will review your medical and dental history. We will then examine your teeth and gums, screen you for oral cancer, take x-rays of your teeth, as needed, and complete a TMJ (temporomandibular or jaw joint) exam.
For new patients, your dental care begins with what we call the “PERFECT BEGINNING”
This is a complete dental examination which includes a thorough visual examination, all necessary x-rays, and diagnostic impressions if they are indicated. The greatest service to your dental well-being that we could possibly render begins with a complete dental examination. We then proceed to the “treatment conference”, where we discuss our findings and plan of action.
Do you want to know more about your options to pay for your dentistry procedures? We take the time to listen to your concerns about your dental issues, answer your questions, respect your needs and most importantly, concerns about your budget. We will also answer any questions you may have, and address all of your concerns. These facts help you make intelligent choices.
X-RAY EXAMINATIONS There is no reason for any patient to be concerned when dental x-ray examinations are made with the modern methods and safeguards that we use. This is the opinion of such authorities as the Council on Dental Research of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Oral Roentgenology, the Division of Radiological Health, and the U. S. Public Health Service. How do you benefit from an x-ray examination? It is one of the important tools used to preserve your natural teeth. With the aid of x-ray pictures, we can detect conditions that, left untreated, would eventually affect the function and appearance of your teeth.
PLAQUE CONTROL The area of major interest to us is the gingival crevice where the gingival (gum) tissue meets the tooth. In this crevice the body sets up its first line of defense against periodontal disease. This tissue fits around the tooth just as a turtleneck sweater fits the neck. It has an outer lining similar to the skin on the rest of the body. Glands form gushing fountains that wash debris out of the crevice. These washing glands must be kept free-flowing at all times. When food combines with saliva and bacteria they form a mass that collects in the crevice around the necks of the teeth. The bacterial-food-saliva is referred to as “bacterial plaque.” The mass of plaque, among other things, prevents the normal function of the washing glands in the area of the crevice. If the plaque is not removed, the bacterial digestion of food continues, and the end products of the digestion attack and etch the smooth surface of the tooth and may eventually cause damage to the bony housing of the tooth. At this point the patient suffers from periodontal disease. Plaque control is the answer.
RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY A sensible approach is to set goals for our mouths, learn what the problems and potentials are for reaching these goals, plan the dentistry needed to get to the objectives, and then work the plan according to the rate which is right for your dental health. We work with you to give you the best smile you can have!
