Dr. Kiehl on Dental Cleanings and Exams Read Transcript
Well, first of all, if they're a new patient to the office, generally they'll meet both the hygienist and the doctor on that first visit. We try to keep those visits very efficient. The last thing a patient wants to do is come in and spend three hours here seeing everybody, going through the X-rays and whatnot. So we try to keep it very efficient, but also make sure that we're able to thoroughly diagnose what's going on for the patient. If they come in with any specific concerns, we certainly try to address those right away. Otherwise we go through a process of exam with the doctor, X-rays, and then try to develop a treatment plan both to solve any needs the patient has for dental hygiene or periodontal concerns, but also address their restorative concerns at the same time so that they can leave here with a good understanding of what the next step is. That's really the key.
- Keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy

Preventive Dental Care Can Help You Maintain a Healthy Mouth
You never want to take a “wait-and-see” attitude when it comes to dental issues. Ignoring problems like cavities, for example, can result in progressively more complicated and expensive treatments.
While we can usually fix a cavity with a simple tooth filling, a larger cavity will need a more extensive restoration like a dental crown. If the decay that created the cavity gets into the center of your tooth, it can become infected and require a root canal. With severe cases of decay, you may even lose your tooth.
You’ll Receive a Complete Checkup at Your First Visit
At your first checkup with us, you’ll see one of our hygienists for a thorough dental cleaning and a full periodontal charting. This is a great time to discuss your periodontal (gum) state and how we can treat any signs of gum disease, if necessary.
During your appointment, we also take X-rays and lots of intraoral photos. This will help us get a good idea of your situation and let us know what we can do to improve your oral health. You’ll meet with one of our dentists to discuss any concerns you may have and talk about treatment.
You’ll leave your appointment with a better understanding of your current dental health and how we can help you improve it or prevent future problems. We recommend you see Dr. Kiehl or Dr. Cohen every six months to keep your smile healthy.
