What Happens During a Visit?
When you visit our family practice for a routine dental appointment, Dr. Schill will perform a professional cleaning called prophylaxis. He'll additionally look for signs of periodontal disease, visual evidence of tooth decay, loose or broken teeth, evaluate any oral appliances present, and take x-rays when necessary. During the cleaning, he'll remove plaque and tartar with a small instrument, and polish enamel before suggesting tips to follow at home.
