Your office visits
For most of you, time is a precious commodity. We will do our best to be timely when you visit our office, and we ask the same of you. IMPORTANT MEDICAL NOTE: If you are aware of the need to premedicate with an antibiotic (such as for a prosthetic joint replacement or artificial heart valves), please call our office prior to your next scheduled visit to discuss this. Our phone number is 407-352-6959.
Preventive care is paramount to optimal oral health. While we feel our mission is to “Guide the Way to Better Oral Health,” ultimately good oral health begins with an earnest effort on your part by practicing effective oral hygiene at home. Do not hesitate to ask the hygienist if you have any questions regarding recommended proper oral hygiene.
In addition to practicing excellent personal oral hygiene at home, it is essential to have your teeth cleaned professionally by a certified dental hygienist. The service of a hygienist is needed to remove hard tissue deposits that cannot be removed at home.
In addition to this, your mouth is screened by the hygienist for tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. The length of time recommended between professional cleanings varies on a case-by-case basis and can range from every three months to once per year. Every six months for professional cleanings is commonly recommended.
In addition to regular cleanings by your hygienist, an examination by either Dr. Rampi or Dr. Palmer is recommended on a regular basis. The examination can include some or all the following:
- Examination for tooth decay
- Examination for failing existing restorations
- Examination for periodontal disease (gum disease)
- Examination for oral cancer
- Examination for dysfunction of the TMJs (jaw joints)
- Examination of the patient’s occlusion (“bite”)
- Diagnostic tests as needed to determine if an inflamed or abscessed tooth is present (such as examination with cold, percussion (tapping), palpation, etc…).
