Your First Visit at Aesthetic Dental Center of Bergen County in Ridgefield Park, NJ
Has it been a long time since you visited the dentist? Or have you moved and need to get started with a new dentist? At Aesthetic Dental Center, we have found that when patients know what to expect during their first visit, many of their worries can be alleviated. Let's take a look at how things should go when you visit our dental practice for your first visit.
Your First Visit
Your initial appointment will have the goal of getting to know you, your teeth and mouth, as well as your dental health needs and goals. We will ask you to fill out some informational forms so that we understand your medical and dental history, contact details, dental insurance, and emergency contact information.
Comprehensive Dental Exam
We perform this exam at your first dental visit and again during subsequent checkups. Your dental team can help determine the frequency of these exams, based upon your current dental health and treatment goals.
The comprehensive dental exam is a very important part of your initial visit with us. It gives us an accurate picture of what is going on with your current oral health. After this examination, we will be able to note any changes in your oral health based upon what we discovered during your initial visit.
The comprehensive treatment plan involves a complete look at all factors involved with your general oral health, including the following:
We have the latest in x-ray technology available to help with the detection of tooth decay, bone loss, cavities, tumors, cysts, and other types of dental conditions. X-rays also help us map the positions of your teeth and their roots.
Taking and displaying x-rays also affords better interaction between you and your dentist. Instead of being told about things going on with your oral health, we can simply show you precisely what we are talking about from multiple angles.
Oral Cancer Screening
Although any type of cancer can be frightening, oral cancer is actually extremely treatable when detected early. So your dental team will be looking in your mouth for any signs and symptoms of this serious disease so that it can be diagnosed and treated.
Gum Disease Screening
Medically called periodontal disease, gum disease is a progressive oral condition involving an infection of the gums surrounding your teeth. It can develop into something serious over time, threatening problems like tooth loss when your gums no longer fit snugly around your teeth.
The screening is performed using a periodontal probe, which is used to measure the space found between your teeth and surrounding gum tissue. If you have pockets that are beyond a certain size, this normally indicates an infection requiring treatment.

“I was seen a little earlier than my scheduled appointment so that was a plus. The dental office was immaculate! My tooth extraction was done in less than 5 minutes. I didn’t even realize it was out until he said ok all done!! Absolutely no pain, no pressure! The oral surgeon was brilliant! I’ll highly recommend this a million times!!”

“Dr. Jennie Lee was very patient and so good with my 4-yr-old son. He was at ease and sat through the whole filling treatment without any difficulty. They were very accomodating to his needs and didn't give him any unnecessary treatment just to take your money. Highly recommend!! Staff is friendly as well.”
