Going to the dentist may not exactly be your idea of good time. However, there are few things more rewarding than the feeling you’ll get when you leave our dental office with a beautifully healthy smile. At Old Orchard Dental, we know that many people may feel anxious about coming to the dentist, so it is our goal to make your visit with us as pain and anxiety free as possible. We view it as our mission to educate our patients about all of their oral health care options, and to help guide them to choose a treatment plan that is most suitable and appropriate for their needs. For many, this preventive approach in dental care begins with a routine Skokie teeth cleaning.
Your first visit to our office establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important information like your dental and medical histories and give you time to get to know our dentists before your Skokie teeth cleaning. Our dental hygiene program is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored, and manage periodontal (gum) disease. However, at the initial visit with us, we will do much more than merely clean your teeth and gums. Your dentist will perform a complete oral examination which includes an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, and an analysis of your occlusion (bite). This ensures a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures, and of the oral anatomy. Routine teeth cleanings are an incredibly effective method in preventing future dental problems, such as gum disease. There are many different varieties of periodontal disease, and many ways in which these variations manifest themselves. Gingivitis is among the most common. However, all forms of gum disease require immediate treatment by their dentist to halt the progression and save the gum tissue and bone. Our patients are grateful to our dentists for aiding them in achieving the best tooth and gum health possible.
Taking care of your teeth is one of the easiest and best ways to present yourself to the world. At Old Orchard Dental, our practice is dedicated to creating beautiful, long-lasting smiles and maintaining healthy mouths. Whether your dental needs are a complete Skokie teeth cleaning or a full-mouth restoration, our team of experienced and qualified dentists are sure to meet your every need. So all those things you’d rather be doing than visiting the dentist — imagine how much better they’d be if you could enjoy them while confidently showing off your beautiful and healthy smile!
