What to Expect
It’s vital to develop a good relationship with a dentist early in life to prevent future problems. Our dentists recommends that toddlers come in for their initial exam before their first birthday. After that, most patients will schedule two meetings per year for professional cleanings and a dental exam at DentalWorks - Durham. These recurrent appointments are important to prevent tartar and plaque from building up on the teeth as well as finding signs of concern or disease promptly for more successful treatments. Other procedures and treatments, like fillings, orthodontics, and dental restorations, will be scheduled as they are needed.
Our dentists can help each person create their individual oral care strategy for their oral health, including a good home oral care routine, regular dental exams and cleanings, restorative procedures that may be necessary, and cosmetic procedures that may be requested. During their appointment, patients can talk about their oral health symptoms as well as troubles about the appearance of their smile. Our dentists will work with each patient to tailor their individual oral health treatment plan at DentalWorks - Durham.
While several preventative and general dental treatments at DentalWorks - Durham are covered at least in part by dental insurance, coverage varies for restorative procedures and special treatments.
