Your First Visit
Your first general family dentistry visit to our dental office will involve a thorough examination and consultation. We will take X-rays to check for any signs of problems, and we'll ask you in-depth questions about your oral and overall health history. After this examination, we'll make any treatment recommendations and provide a thorough oral hygiene cleaning.
Daily brushing and flossing are an essential part of your oral health routine. Not only can practicing good oral hygiene at home help keep you from developing cavities, but routine care can help prevent gum disease as well. However, home care isn't enough to truly stop oral health problems completely. It's difficult for you to catch every problem area and remove all of the plaque or tartar that forms on your teeth and along the gum line. During a professional hygiene visit to Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we can perform a deep cleaning as part of your general family dentistry visit. We'll remove debris and toxins that would otherwise threaten your overall oral health, and we'll provide fluoride treatments for thorough cavity protection.
Children's Dentistry at Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry
Our general family dentistry services include children's dentistry. We would love to start seeing your child around the age of three. By starting early, we get a good head start on your child's oral health. We can help your child get comfortable with trips to the dental office and help prevent future dental anxiety. Your child's first children's dentistry visit will consist of an examination of his or her teeth and gums, possible X-rays, and a very gentle cleaning. We might apply a fluoride treatment to protect your child's teeth from cavities. As your child ages, we'll spend these visits checking on the development of his or her bite. Once the adult teeth come in, we can apply dental sealants to your child's molars. Dental sealants play a major role in children's dentistry care, protecting cavity-prone kids during these very important years. If we can keep your child's smile healthy into adulthood, they stand a better chance of lifelong oral health.
Dr. Neslund will always take the time to discuss his findings and recommendations for your oral healthcare in thorough detail, giving you various options and working with you to determine the best course of treatment. The general routine dental care you receive at our office will never be one-size-fits-all. That’s why we offer services such as sleep apnea therapy – services you won’t find in every general dentist’s office.
If it’s been awhile since your last dental cleaning or routine dental exam, give our office a call. We happily provide general family dentistry care for patients from Boiling Springs, Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, and surrounding Pennsylvania communities.
