What Should I Expect?
During your routine visit, your Union City, NJ dentist will clean your teeth. (It’s recommended to brush your teeth beforehand so they can focus on any problem areas they notice.) Next, they’ll check your mouth for any signs of a developing oral issue, like a cavity or gum disease. If they notice any problems or if this is your first visit, you may need to get an x-ray so that your dentist can see your mouth in more detail.
Your dentist may give you advice on how to better care for your teeth. You can also ask any questions you may have about oral health or future procedures such as teeth whitening that you may be interested in.
