Questions You May Have Before Your First Visit

Dental Impressions is prepared to help you enjoy long-lasting support against different oral health threats that can develop over time. We can provide consistent preventive care that defends against dental and periodontal troubles. Remember that our practice is also here to address active concerns you might have, including active cosmetic concerns. We can help you understand what services are available to you, and we can also help you understand the coverage you have.

What Do I Gain From Regular Dental Exams?

Regular dental exams play an important role in a person’s efforts to maintain an attractive and healthy smile. There are several services that contribute to this support. Dental cleanings remove tartar and plaque buildup that can gather between appointments. While you can fight the accumulation of plaque on your teeth, tartar buildup calls for treatment from your hygienist. During your time with Dr. Foust, you will receive a careful evaluation that can call attention to any problems that might call for treatment. If you show signs of gingivitis, we can recommend that you undergo a periodontal cleaning instead of the standard care that we offer. For dental decay, we can discuss restorative dental work.

Can I Bring My Family In For Dental Care?

Your family is welcome at our practice, as we offer pediatric dental exams as well as services for adults. Access to an all-ages family dental office can make it easier for you to make sure that everyone in your household has dependable care. Both kids and adults benefit from preventive services, but kids can depend on additional forms of support. We can monitor their growth to make sure their oral structures are developing without issue. We can also offer them guidance so that they can more easily maintain their oral health at home.

What Will Happen If I Have A Cavity?

If you have a cavity, you will need to undergo restorative treatment. The size of your cavity will affect what kind of restoration you need. The good news is that you can look forward to treatment that protects your tooth without changing its appearance. That means you can continue to feel good about the way you look while trusting that your tooth will remain safe.
