We ask that you understand that our provider's time is more crucial than ever and request that you be prompt to your appointment, arriving no sooner or later than your appointment time.

Things to Expect if Visiting Us Has Been Delayed for a Long Time

Posted on 6/25/2019 by Dr. James A. Krippaehne
Things to Expect if Visiting Us Has Been Delayed for a Long TimeIf it has been a while since you've seen our dentist, then you need to consider what might happen when you come in to see us after this time has passed. We recommend everyone gets a dental cleaning from our office every 6 months.

An exam is also provided during this time. This is important because everyone needs to have cleaner, better feeling teeth and the more time that passes between visits, the higher the chances are of getting gum disease.

What to Expect
During the visit, we may not do anything at all. We may just examine your mouth to determine if you need a deep cleaning. This deep cleaning helps to revitalize the gums and keeps them healthy. The build-up of plaque that comes from not seeing a dentist regularly can cause the gums to become inflamed and infected. This is gum disease. Depending on how long it has been since you've seen our office, the gum disease might be early on or it might be advanced.

You can expect that you will have to come back another time or two to get the work that is needed, including a deep cleaning. We want your mouth to be as healthy as possible and with the right cleaning and fixes being done, you will be able to smile with each and know that your mouth is healthy once again.

Speak with us today to get the help that is needed. When you haven't been to our office in some time, you are going to have a hard time being able to continue without decay or other issues. We can reduce the chances of having anything bad happen if you call us sooner, rather than later. Give us a call today and we can get you scheduled for a cleaning and exam.
We believe in educating patients about their treatment options and listening to their questions and concerns.
We focus on prevention so that you keep your smile healthy. We provide excellent comfortable care for all procedures.
