Our top priority is to protect your dental health here at Oasis Dental in Hempstead, NY. In order to do this, we like to conduct a dental check-up every 4 to 6 months depending on your oral health needs. Great oral health begins with regular preventive care. When you come into our office for your regular check up, we are better able to provide treatment for areas of concern. On the other hand, if we only see you during an emergency dental care situation, this limits our ability to get a full picture of your oral health. Furthermore, by coming to see us for a dental cleaning, we can help to keep your dental care up to date and effective. This reduces the amount of oral diseases and conditions, such as gum disease or cavities, which you might have.
As a patient at Oasis Dental, we want you to feel comfortable and at ease when you come into our office. Our goal is to provide you with high-quality oral care. We typically begin with digital X-rays to have images of the interior of your teeth to check for any decay that isn’t visible to the naked eye. The dentist will discuss any problems you are currently dealing then take a closer look at those trouble spots. An oral exam, both regarding your oral history and a visual check of your teeth and gums, will be carried out. At that point, your dentist will be able to create a customized treatment plan as needed for preventative care in the future.
The American Dental Association recommends beginning pediatric dental visits for children around the age of 6 months or when the first tooth erupts. This way the dentist can begin creating a dental record of the baby’s teeth from the very beginning. Some parents choose to bring their children into Oasis Dental when they start to get their adult teeth. At this point, your child should be coming to the dentist every six months unless Dr. Arora or Dr. Chhabra think otherwise based on the child’s dental care needs. If you are not sure of whether you should bring your child into see us at Oasis Dental, give us a call, and we will help you make the right decision regarding the timing of your child’s first dental visit.
