Our polite and professional staff will make your first visit as smooth and effortless as possible. We are pleased to serve our neighbors, as well as out-of-town guests visiting the Austin area.
What to Expect at Your First Dental Visit
Your first visit will include a full dental examination, during which we will evaluate your oral health. If you do not have X-rays that are up to date, we will also take a set of X-rays so that we can properly diagnose any issues that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
X-rays are useful for noting the condition of the jaw, sinuses, and teeth and tissue below the gum line. These images are crucial for providing comprehensive dental care that effectively addresses your unique needs.
Once your exam is complete, Dr. Lance Loveless can prescribe treatment and schedule you for your first cleaning. Some patients receive a standard cleaning to thoroughly cleanse all surfaces of the teeth of plaque and other buildup. Other patients may require a more intensive treatment to address cavities, tooth pain, diseased gums, or other dental problems. With your X-rays and complete evaluation, Dr. Loveless can prescribe the treatment necessary to optimize your dental health.
