What do I need to bring to my first appointment?
When coming to Seycove Dental for your first appointment, we ask that you bring your current insurance plan and, if possible, your medical history for our review.
In what kind of situation would I need x-rays?
X-rays (also referred to as radiographs) help our dental professionals to detect problems we can't see by simply using a mirror to look into your mouth. They help see beneath gum tissue and between teeth.
Using X-rays, we can see the absence (or presence) of teeth in your mouth (including things like missing permanent teeth, impacted teeth, the position of your wisdom teeth and more), as well as the level of bone in your jaw, and whether it has deteriorated due to missing teeth or advanced periodontal disease.
Abscesses, cysts and calcified arteries (which can lead to a stroke) can also be seen with X-rays.
How early should I arrive for my appointment?
We ask that you arrive at least 10 minutes early for your appointment with us. This will give you the time you need to fill out any required forms or documentation - such as our New Patient Form.

How often should I get my teeth cleaned?
Depending on how diligent you are about your at-home care, the condition of your smile and your risk of cavities, the recommendations we provide for your preventive treatments may vary.
We recommend clients with existing conditions (gum disease, untreated cavities, frequent new cavities, root exposure, etc.) come in more frequently than those with healthy mouths and few restorations.
To help minimize the risk of further damage or decay, patients who are considered to be 'at-risk' of developing oral health issues may be recommended to see a dentist every three or four months.
For clients with healthy smiles, we recommend visiting the dentist every six months.
