Your First Dental Visit
If you are a new patient of Morris Family Dentistry, your first visit will be similar to a routine dental appointment. However, we ask that new patients contact their previous dentist’s office to send any current x-rays. Our dental office staff will also take your insurance information and payment methods for your appointment.
Your first dental visit to our office will begin with a dental cleaning. Using specialized dental tools, our dental hygienists provide thorough cleaning to remove bacteria and plaque from the mouth. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that hardens on the teeth and gums. Removing plaque can prevent the development of tooth decay and gum disease. If patients have signs of gum inflammation, redness of the gums, or gum sensitivity, we can perform a scaling and root planing. These treatments remove plaque at and below the gum line. Used in tandem, scaling and root planing help ensure the tooth roots are secure to the gums.
Dr. Morris does not provide fluoride treatment to patients. This is because an excess of fluoride can negatively affect the teeth and body. In some cases, excessive fluoride can cause an iodine deficiency, hypertension, thyroid dysfunction, acne, bone weakness, and dental fluorosis. Routine dental care, a good oral hygiene routine, and a healthy diet are simple and natural treatments to prevent decay and cavities.
Comprehensive and Modern Dental Services
Are you looking for specialized dental care? Dr. Morris offers modern, effective dental treatments to brighten, straighten, or replace teeth:
- Tooth Whitening: Opalescence Boost is an in-office teeth whitening treatment that provides immediate results in under an hour. In-office whitening is a great option for patients who are going to special events like birthdays, weddings, and graduations. For patients who want to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own homes, we can create custom take-home whitening kits.
- Invisalign: Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional metal braces. Using discreet, clear aligners, patients can straighten their crooked teeth comfortably. Invisalign aligners are removable, so patients can easily brush, floss, and eat the foods they enjoy. When compared to metal braces, Invisalign offers more comfortable treatment without dietary restrictions.
- Dental Implants: Dental implants are high-quality, titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jaw bone. After the posts fuse to the jawbone, they are covered by an abutment and dental crown. Implants may be used to replace single teeth or support dental bridges and dentures. If you require a replacement for multiple missing teeth, Dr. Morris can create a treatment plan to strategically place supporting dental implants.
