In our Platte City office, you’ll start your visit with a dental technician who will remove any plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. Any routine dental x-rays will be taken. The technician will use a rotary toothbrush and gritty type of toothpaste (you’ll get to pick a toothpaste flavor!) to clean and polish your teeth. After the cleaning, the technician will floss your teeth. The application of fluoride is also available for all patients, and is recommended annually for all patients under the age of 16. Dr. Mohn will then exam your teeth and gums, and discuss any additional needed procedures, such as filling a cavity. Before leaving the office, you’ll make an appointment for your next visit (usually in six months).
