What to Expect
A regular dental appointment will include a dental exam and professional cleaning. Additional treatments may be suggested if needed. Prior to any treatment, Dr. Toms will talk to you about the options and methods recommended for you or your child to correct issues, such as misaligned teeth, cavities, and more. Dr. Toms can also recommend proactive procedures, such as treatments with fluoride and sealants for children with developing teeth. The good news is that will do our best to make appointments around the same time and on the same day to work within your time frame easier.
At the end of each dental visit, Dr. Toms will help you come up with an individual plan to maintain your family's oral health. A key element is having a good home oral hygiene regimen, which means regular brushing, flossing, and mouthwash use. Dr. Toms or a member of his team can demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques or suggest products for specific concerns. Attending all routine visits will also help Dr. Toms watch your family's dental health and catch minor issues before they develop into bigger concerns.
