What to expect during your visit?
For a routine visit, the dentist will start by covering the chest using a paper cloth or a plastic, and the eyes may also be shielded. There will be a tray of the metal and the ultrasonic tools. A hygienist will use these while working with your tooth and the will scrape away the tartar or plaque that are on the surface of the tooth and over the gum line. The dentist can also floss between the teeth too.
When the jaw is hurting or if you have the pain in the mouth during the cleaning, then it is better to let the hygienist know about it. After the first step, the dentist will use water to rinse the dentist thoroughly. When using the tool using the spinning head and hygienist will polish the teeth. You may also decide on the right flavor you want for the buffing paste.
You have to pass through the x-ray each year so that the dentist will identify any problem which is hard to see with open eyes or which just begun.
The dentist will then use a periodontal probe that may be ultrasonic or metal. It helps a dentist to find problematic sports, and it can be used to measure the depth of the gum pockets. The hygienist will record the finding in the notes at your chart.
Whenever you visit the dentist for the first time or if you have waited for two years before the next visit, then you will need to have the x-ray done.
