I would hope that their first impression would be a good impression, that they came in and felt like they were home, is that from the time of their first phone call to the first person they meet at the front desk, to the assistants, to the doctors that they feel comfortable. They don't feel like one of many coming, but that everybody was focused on their needs.
Importance of Dental Cleanings and Exams
Dental problems can sneak up on you if you aren’t careful. In most cases, you will not be able to see the developing issues until they have reached damaging levels. By the time you notice tooth decay, it will have already eaten away at your natural tooth. By the time you notice gum disease, you may be in danger of tooth loss. Regular dental exams will give your dentist a chance to catch all of these conditions early on. The earlier they are caught, the easier it is to treat them.
The benefits of cleanings and exams do not stop with early disease and decay detection. Our dental team will professionally clean your mouth, including all the areas you aren’t able to reach. This will help keep you safe from disease and decay-causing plaque and tartar.
At one time, when we first came in two years ago, it was like, “Well, my teeth don't feel like they're really that great.” I had some old fillings from 20 years ago that were really chipping my teeth. They were breaking my teeth. I haven't had anything done. I haven't had cavities, per se, or any other kind of weird things done to my teeth drilling-wise, so all the stuff in my teeth have been there for 25 years. And it's like, some of that stuff is just starting to get old, as I am, and like I said, I've had some cracked teeth. It seems like Brar's were on top of that.
The dentists have kept me from really doing major damage. I've gotten crowns where I need them, gotten rid of a lot of the things that I wanted to get rid of in terms of the silver fillings and had them replaced. Still have a few left there but I feel like that's under control, so I don't think that I have any real major issues or anything like that, and that's great. Like I said, I think I had a lot of problems coming into this and now I feel like it's under control, where I didn't before.
