When you visit our Westchester dental practice for the first time, you will be greeted by our friendly dental team, who will guide you through your first appointment.
During your first appointment here at Chappaqua Dentistry, we will take the time to learn more about your medical history, and you will have the opportunity to discuss any dental health concerns that you may be experiencing. To provide you with the best possible dental service, and to build up a clear picture of how we can help you, your first appointment will take longer than future appointments.
Please feel free to ask our team any questions that you may have during your initial appointment. We pride ourselves on our high level of patient care and compassion, so we are always happy to answer any questions and discuss any concerns that you may have to put you at ease.
After gaining an understanding of your medical history and making a note of any dental concerns you currently have, you will then receive a visual dental examination from our dentist.
Our team is led by highly experienced dentist, Dr. Brisman, who offer some of the best dental services in Westchester. As a family-oriented dental practice, we pride ourselves on patient comfort and care, so you can be sure of receiving high-quality treatment along with an emphasis on care during both your first appointment and all subsequent appointments. The combination of discussing your medical history and dental concerns with a visual examination enables our dentist to gain a thorough understanding of both your general health and dental health. This information is essential, as it will help to inform any future treatment that you receive.
As well as receiving a visual examination from our dentist, you may also have x-rays taken at your first appointment. Dental x-rays will enable our dentist to gain a full picture of your teeth and jaw. An x-ray will be able to spot any issues or potential concerns that cannot be picked up by a visual examination alone, such as any problems below the gumline. A dental x-ray is an excellent way of picking up previously undetected issues so that they can be addressed.
During your first appointment, our dentist may examine your head and neck. The head and neck examination will help to identify any jaw or bite alignment issues that you may be experiencing.
After this initial consultation, our friendly Westchester dentist will discuss the results of your examination and take into account any dental concerns that you raised. From here, our dentist will be able to advise you on the most suitable treatment options that are available to you and discuss these with you. Based on your results and discussion, our dentist will put together a personal treatment plan to help you on your way to a healthy smile.
Here at Chappaqua Dentistry in Westchester, we offer an extensive range of services. Our services include general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and restorative dentistry. We even provide a full-mouth reconstruction service, so whatever dentistry treatment you require, to get your smile healthy and looking at its best, we can help.
Once you have scheduled your first appointment with us, you may be wondering if you need to bring anything along with you. Bringing some written information along with you, which includes your medical details, will help us to assess you more thoroughly. Having this information readily available will also help your appointment to run as smoothly as possible.
It is also useful to bring along any recent dental x-rays that you have so that our Westchester dentist can view them. Don’t worry if you don’t have any recent dental x-rays to bring along, if needed, we can take new x-rays during your initial appointment.
As we need details of your medical history to best plan your treatment options, it is useful if you can bring a list of any medical conditions that you have, as well as any allergies. Along with listing allergies and medical conditions, please also bring a list of medications that you are taking.
After your initial appointment, our dentist will make a plan for your treatment and will advise you on what happens next. It may be possible to begin your treatment immediately, but this does depend on the kind of treatment that you need and any complexities or further examinations involved.
If you will be receiving restorative dental treatment or certain types of cosmetic dental treatment, you may have casts taken after your first appointment. Casts of your jaw or teeth will be needed if you are having dental crowns, a bridge, veneers, or dental implants as part of your treatment. These casts will be used to create your crown, bridge, veneer, or implants so that they provide the most comfortable, natural look.
If, at any stage, you have questions about your treatment, then please get in touch with our friendly team at Chappaqua Dentistry, and we will discuss your questions or concerns with you.
