What Happens at Your Dental Check-Up
For patients who struggle with anxiety, Bishop Family Dental has many ways to make them feel at ease. Patients are allowed to choose from hundreds of movies, TV shows and digital radio stations and then given wireless headphones to watch or listen to during their treatment.
Our team is willing to answer any questions before, during and after their treatment to alleviate any concerns. You will find a very relaxed atmosphere with a clean and sterile environment. We use a stronger topical to helps patients feel more comfortable while waiting for teeth to fall asleep. There is also nitrous to help the patient relax, prescriptions can be written to help their anxiety, and they even have a Dental Anesthesiologist that can help patients to be asleep during their procedure. In some cases we can also use our laser so they don’t have to hear the sound of the drill or feel the vibrations.
During your check-up we will do an overall examination of your teeth and gums including a general cleaning. This will include taking images of your teeth and gums to identify infections or decay below the surface. If we find any signs of infection, tooth decay, gum disease or serious condition we will discuss treatment options before starting any procedures. Your visit to our Salt Lake City office will be completed efficiently and gently.
