The Hygiene team of Diamond State Dentistry would like to familiarize you with some of the treatment possibilities you may encounter on your first and/or subsequent hygiene appointments.
For children (17 yrs and younger) Each 6 month visit includes a prophy, a fluoride treatment and an exam. Two (2) or four (4) digital images are taken on the first visit and then yearly thereafter. Minor children will not be treated without a parent or legal guardian physically present.
For adults (with good oral health) Each 6 month visit includes a prophy and an exam. Two (2) or four (4) digital images are taken on the first visit and then yearly thereafter. A fluoride treatment is recommended and will be provided per request.
For adults (with an irregular checkup history) Care may be altered from the above as determined by the hygienist/doctor. A full series of digital images may be necessary and all that time allows. If further treatment is rendered at this visit, it may be part of a treatment process. The treatment specific for you and the added expenditures will be explained to you by the hygienist.
For all adults We normally recommend a full mouth series of digital images when you begin with us and every (5) five years or so thereafter. This allows for proper monitoring of the entire mouth.
