The American Dental Association recommends having a dentist perform a routine dental exam and dental cleaning every six months. This is an essential aspect of maintaining good oral health. After your teeth have been cleaned and polished, Dr. David Wilhelm will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues.
This will help detect any signs of gum disease, cavities, and oral cancer. If Dr. David Wilhelm finds an area of concern, he can recommend the most effective mode of treatment. It’s important to have any oral health problems treated early before they can cause more serious complications.
If you’ve struggled with dental anxiety in the past, you should feel free to let us know when scheduling your next appointment. This will help Dr. David Wilhelm and his staff to allow a little extra time to answer your questions and address any concerns.
If your feelings of dental anxiety are related to a feeling that the mouth is an intimate part of the body, please let us know. It’s important to remember that everyone at Newport Dental Arts OC is a highly trained oral care professional. Our goal is to always provide you with the highest level of oral healthcare, while helping you feel as comfortable as possible.
If you still experience stress during a dental treatment, Dr. David Wilhelm might be able to administer some nitrous oxide. This can temporarily sooth your anxiety allowing you to remain comfortable throughout the appointment.
