 Should I See a Dentist?

In short, yes! According to the American Dental Association, most people should visit a dentist twice a year. But certain aches and pains in the mouth may signal a serious dental problem that requires a special trip to the dentist. If you encounter any of the following symptoms, consider calling Vacendak Dentistry to schedule an appointment (from mouthhealthy.org).

  • You have pain or swelling in your mouth or face
  • Your teeth are sensitive to hot or cold
  • You have bleeding or inflamed gums
  • You have bad breath that won’t go away
  • You have a family history of gum disease
  • You have bothersome dry mouth
  • You have a mouth sore that isn’t healing
  • Your jaw clicks or pops
  • Chewing is difficult
  • You’re unhappy with the way your teeth look
  • You have a serious medical condition like diabetes, heart disease, eating disorders, or are HIV positive
  • You are currently undergoing radiation treatment or hormone replacement therapy

What to Expect at Your Initial Dental Consultation

When you walk through our doors, the doctors and staff at Vacendak Dentistry make your comfort and peace of mind our first priority. Be sure to set aside at least an hour and half for your first appointment, as we take our time getting to know you and your teeth so as to provide the very best personalized dental care.

You will head into one of the spacious and well-lit exam rooms and take a seat in the heated massage chair. Doctors Sheila or Daniel Vacendak will chat with you and learn more about your dental history, your overall health and any special concerns you have. We will then take a full mouth X-Ray series and screen for signs of oral cancer using the revolutionary VELscope. When it comes time for the oral exam and teeth cleaning you can sit back, relax and even watch some TV as the doctor takes care of your teeth.
