For new patients, first of all, they can expect a very warm welcome from all our people in reception, as well as from all of our assistants and doctor-wise. Once they're here, we go over their treatment. We try to make them as comfortable as possible because we know it's not something anybody looks forward to going to the dentist. We make it comfortable for them, we explain the procedures, and we tell them the importance of having cleanings and their health maintenance done. To preserve their tooth and supporting structures for the long-term. Here in the office we like keeping our patients with their teeth and not going for removing teeth and dentures and partials, so we try to make the patients conscious of what we can do for them to preserve their teeth for the long-term.
For the best results, award-winning San Antonio, TX dentist Dr. John A. Moore, Jr. recommends visiting us at least twice a year to maintain the health and beauty of your smile. Schedule your visit now by calling us at 210-951-4444.
Your Teeth Cleaning
Your teeth cleaning will be conducted in one of our comfortable dental chairs by a skilled dental hygienist. Once plaque becomes tartar, it can be removed only by a professional. After a thorough cleaning and flossing, your hygienist will polish your teeth for that squeaky-clean look and feel.
To reap the most benefits from a fluoride varnish or treatment, you can request that we apply it to your teeth immediately following your dental cleaning. Your teeth will be completely free of any plaque and will be able to better absorb the tooth-strengthening fluoride.
Your Dental Exam
Dental exams are extremely important because they give Dr. Moore and Dr. Tostado an opportunity to take a closer look at your mouth. Digital X-rays can reveal whether there are any oral health issues beyond what meets the eye. We’ll do an oral cancer screening using VELscope, a World Health Organization–recognized, award-winning technology.
Your dental exam is also when we can inspect any custom mouthguard we’ve created for you – athletic, bruxism, or sleep apnea – for wear, and it’s a great time to ask about our nutritional counseling services too!
