It’s almost time for your routine dental appointment with our dentist and team. You may be wondering what to expect at your six-month appointments. We are more than happy to give you a rundown of your routine appointment.

Professional Dental Cleaning
When you come in to Lemon Grove Dental Group, Inc, your teeth will be professionally cleaned of plaque and tartar. These cleanings help keep your gum tissues healthy. Your teeth will then be polished and flossed.

Oral Examination
Dr. Richard Cavallaro will then examine each of your teeth and your gums for indications of tooth decay, gum disease and other dental issues.

Dental X-Rays
Depending on your age, dental health, and other factors, Dr. Richard Cavallaro may decide to take dental X-rays during your visit. Dental X-rays help us to see anything that is not apparent to the naked eye, like the roots of your teeth.

Dental Hygiene Instruction
Our hygienist and dentist may go over some of your specific home care needs. They may give tips on proper brushing or flossing, advise you on foods to steer clear of, or tell you about some good snacking choices.
