Ready for Your First Dental Visit

Why is dental health important?

At our clinic, we believe in the age-old saying that prevention is better than cure. Taking care of your dental health is vital because it can save you countless dollars and time wasted or pain from avoidable dental issues, and helps keep your smile beautiful and healthy.

Your first dental visit is also a great time to become more informed on oral health and how it is linked to overall wellbeing while also learning how to maintain good oral hygiene between regular checkups! We utilise several preventative measures during dental visits to make sure that our patients are protected as much as possible from tooth decay.

If you’re bringing your kid in for their first appointment at Wyndham Dental, this should ideally happen within 6 months of their first tooth appearing and no later than their first birthday! We pride ourselves on offering a welcoming space, amazing support staff and caring dental professionals who will work together to make sure this first dental visit is a great one!

What to expect from a first visit to a new dentist?

We provide a comprehensive dental assessment during your first visit to the dentist. We will take the time to get to know your smile needs and goals to provide the best possible dental care. Here’s what you can expect over the course of your appointment:

  1. A clinical examination that allows us to assess your teeth, gums, jaws & bone health.
  2. Dental Imaging (in order to detect any dental conditions that are not directly visible to the eye).
  3. Professional scale and clean to thoroughly remove any bacteria accumulated on your teeth.
  4. Fluoride treatment to strengthen your enamel (which is the outermost protective layer of your tooth).
  5. Oral hygiene guidance & education to ensure your oral health is maintained well between appointments.
  6. Oral cancer screening.
  7. Specific treatment plans for any dental conditions or concerns.

Remember, top-notch dental care takes time and that’s why your first comprehensive dental visit is so important.

How do I stop being nervous at the dentist?

We understand we understand that dental appointments can be nerve-wracking for some. If you find yourself having anxiety when it comes to scheduling your dental appointment, please know that you are not alone. Dental anxiety can make you feel a little apprehensive about visiting the dentist, but we want you to know that we’re here to make sure you are comfortable and stress-free during your experience at Wyndham Dental. In addition to having a welcoming space with caring dental professionals, we also utilise sleep dentistry techniques for painless dental care.

What not to do before a dentist appointment

While it’s important to follow a consistent oral hygiene routine, we don’t recommend excessive brushing before your appointment. While it may appear effective, excessive brushing can leave you at a higher risk of tooth or gum damage. Instead, we recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush and lightly brushing the back of your teeth and the surface of your tongue to remove any food particles. Gentle brushing beforehand will make it easier for our dentist to identify any problem spots that need attention.

We also encourage you to be as honest as possible about your dental symptoms, oral hygiene routine and diet so we can determine the best treatment needed for your case. Honest discussions with our dentist play an important part in identifying what preventative measures will work best for you in order to maintain good oral health.
