Every aspect of our practice is tailor-made to offer you comprehensive, convenient service. Answering your questions and concerns about your dental care is our priority.
Before the Dental Visit
The visit to the dentist starts before the date of your appointment. While scheduling an appointment with your dentist in Melbourne, FL, for the first time, you may be asked to gather certain information regarding your medical history. This info is vital for Dr. Gollob to know of any past health issues, whether oral health or overall health.
Some examples of vital information may be any implantable medical devices, past surgical procedures, or chronic medical conditions. This information is essential to know to provide the best care for the patient.
To ensure you receive the treatment you need, one of our friendly team members will oversee the schedules for the dentist and hygienists. You can count on them to assist you with treatment plans and payment options. They will also work with you and your dental insurance providers to maximize your benefits and make the road to a new smile comfortable for you.
During the Dental Visit
While your exact schedule varies on the nature of the visit, a regular dental exam will start with you comfortably seated in a dental chair. When ready, the dental hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth.
Deep teeth cleanings help to remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth that may otherwise cause cavities and tooth decay. In addition, your hygienist will floss in between your teeth to eliminate any plaque your toothbrush could not reach. Following that, we highly recommend getting a fluoride treatment to help strengthen teeth, reduce tooth decay and fight bad breath.
Dr. Gollob Arrives
Dr. Gollob arrives and will evaluate your mouth to determine your level of oral health. He takes the time to get to know you and understand your concerns and goals.
During your dental check, Dr. Gollob will:
- Review your medical and dental history
- Discuss any concerns and your oral health goals
- Perform an oral cancer screening
- Conduct a tooth-by-tooth assessment for decay
- Assess existing dental work
- Check for signs of gum disease
- Check TMJ joints and jaw muscles
- Determine how well your bite fits together
- Take a complete set of dental X-rays, if applicable
- Create casts of your mouth, if applicable
If cavities are present, Dr. Gollob may ask if you want them filled during the visit. Suppose there are questionable areas on the surfaces of the teeth. In that case, he may offer a sealant treatment to reinforce the structure.
If there are issues with the gums, Dr. Gollob will make recommendations regarding how best to care for them to prevent periodontal disease. Of course, he will also encourage you to continue to take good care of your teeth and maybe give you a few preventive care tips.
This moment is the best time for you to ask any questions you may have. It is also a great time to talk with Dr. Gollob about anything that may be bothering you about your smile.
Many people are not content with their smiles. But you must understand that most people are not born with perfect Hollywood teeth. This is where cosmetic dentistry procedures come in.
Dr. Gollob can correct crooked teeth, close gaps, correct stained or discolored teeth, chipped teeth, broken or missing teeth with dental implants, and even “gummy” smiles. You can finally have the smile you have always wanted. Your goals, concerns, and financial comfort level are considered when we tailor a treatment plan for your smile.
