First Visit to your Rochester MN Dentist
When you visit our Rochester MN dental practice you will experience a positive, comfortable environment. We know that dental patients are often nervous even when there’s no reason to be, and try to make the experience more comfortable.
Our experienced and friendly staff will make you feel welcomed. During your comprehensive exam, in addition to your teeth we check your tongue, lips, and cheeks for oral cancer. If you have problems with your jaw or grinding your teeth, we are able to provide information and products that can help. We also check for gum disease. Left untreated, gum disease can cause unsightly, painful, and even irreversible damage to your teeth.
At your first visit, your doctor will meet with you to review your past medical and dental history, discuss any concerns you have, and assess your personal risk factors for dental disease. Then the doctor will conduct a thorough visual examination of your teeth and gums. X-rays and any other diagnostic procedures will then be performed.
