Hillstream Dental: Your Home For General Dentistry
Keeping your teeth clean is the main step to preventing tooth decay and gum disease, which can lead to larger health problems. Coming in to have your teeth cleaned and have your oral health checked is something that can help ensure good oral health. The first step to having your teeth cleaned and inspected is to make an appointment at Hubbard & Leath Dental.
Your First Dental Appointment
When you first reach out to our staff, we will answer your call with a smile! We will then ask you a few questions to get everything prepared for your first visit at Hubbard & Leath Dental. You will then be scheduled for an appointment (Tuesday or Wednesday is usually the best day to come in). We’ll make sure that you remember your appointment because Dr. Hubbard or Dr. Leath will personally call you the day before your appointment.
When you arrive for your first appointment, you will be greeted with a complimentary coffee mug and toothbrush to show you our appreciation. You will then be offered water or coffee and will be required to fill out some forms to get you into our system here at Hubbard & Leath Dental. To speed up that process, you also have the option of filling out the paperwork before your visit through our online new patient forms.
General Dentistry Procedures
Once your appointment begins, you will be called back from the waiting room by your first name and taken in to have some simple X-rays done. Our X-ray machine is a state-of-the-art digital machine that is quick and easy for you. You will then be taken to another part of the office to sit comfortably in a chair so one of our experienced hygienists can clean your teeth and fill out a “where to look” sheet to provide information to the doctor. This sheet is filled out to save time on your treatment.
The next step involves either Dr. Hubbard or Dr. Leath coming into the room to perform your examination. After your appointment has ended, the doctor will leave custom information at the front desk about the best way for you to keep your teeth clean. All of these steps that are taken during your appointment will be done in about an hour! At Hubbard & Leath Dental, we understand that you don’t want to spend all day at the dentist’s office. That is why we strive to have you in and out in an hour with a bright smile on your face!
Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment
If you have gum disease, Hubbard & Leath Dental has a quick and easy way to treat it without surgery. Our gum infection therapy includes scaling and root planing and will leave your gums looking new and improved!
Scaling and root planing are an incredibly effective way to treat gum disease before it becomes serious. This procedure gives your teeth and gums a deep cleaning that goes all the way down to the roots of the teeth. Before the treatment takes place, you may need to have some anesthesia to numb your gums to ensure that you feel no pain or discomfort. After the procedure is finished, your gums will recover in a short amount of time.
