What Is A New Patient Appointment

Before you can receive any kind of treatment, such as a deep cleaning, fillings for cavities, or a consultation for a more advanced service such as dentures or implants, our team here at New Health Dental in Fort Smith will perform a new patient appointment - including an exam with X Rays to get the full landscape of your current oral health, consultation with one of Fort Smith’s top doctors, and a dental cleaning. 

When Should I Make a New Patient Appointment?

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that patients visit the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. However, you may require more frequent visits depending on your oral health, so don’t delay and make an appointment now.

Even if you have seen a dentist within the last six months, you may have concerns over gum health, tooth pain, or needed repairs to procedures like dentures and fillings. If so, come see us at New Health Dental in Fort Smith so we can help you restore your oral health.

It is also time to make an appointment if you are ready to learn about enhancing your smile through services such as teeth whitening, or implants.

Preparing Ahead of Time

New Patient Paperwork

To ensure our team here at New Health Dental in Fort Smith is ready for your visit, you can prepare for your new patient appointment in the following ways. Don’t have time now? No problem, just arrive 15-30 minutes before your appointment time.

Speed up your check-in process by filling out your first visit paperwork from the comfort of your home.

Locate Your Insurance Information

New Health Dental can confirm eligibility of your insurance with our Fort Smith location. While some of our services, such as a new patient appointment, have set or promotional pricing, front desk employees can not guarantee prices for services, as they will vary based on your specific treatment plan and insurance.

If you don’t have insurance, still come and see us - payment plans may be available.

X-Rays/Treatment Info from Previous Dentist

Our expert team can provide second opinions on any previous consultations, or help continue a treatment plan you may have paused. If applicable, you can call your previous dentist to have them send over your X-rays to our office before your appointment.

Medical History

Medical history is important to our office because oral health and overall health are closely connected. Please let New Health Dental know if you have any medical conditions that may impact your treatment plan such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or artificial heart valves & joints.

If you are unsure about your complete medical history or do not have access to it, rest assured that our experienced dental professionals will still provide you with the best possible treatment. Our team is trained in the proper assessments and imaging to empower our doctors to give you quality care.

Comprehensive list of medications - examples include heart medications, aspirin, antihistamines, and decongestants. This information is useful to our team because these medicines can affect your saliva, gum health, cause dry mouth or ulcers, and more. 

Prepare a list of questions - One of our top Fort Smith doctors will be happy to review and answer any concerns you might have about the state of your teeth, and if there are any current issues you’d like addressed - such as tooth or gum pain, bad breath, or stained/yellow teeth.

Braces

Metal is still the most popular material for braces. Today’s metal brackets are smaller, smoother, more efficient, and more comfortable than braces of the past. Traditional metal braces use a combination of stainless steel brackets, arch wires, and elastic ties or bands to gently move teeth as prescribed by your orthodontist. Patients have the option of adding elastics, or rubber bands, to their metal braces for a personalized, colorful smile.

It is never too late to get braces in Fort Smith, AR! People of all ages get braces. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy

Temporomandibular Disorders (Sometimes called TMJ, TMD, TMJD) Facial Pain may be the result of many different causes.

Emergency Dentistry

Teeth Cleaning

Dental Bonding

Gingivitis Treatment

Begin your journey toward a radiant smile and healthier gums with Gingivitis Treatment.

Dental Bridges

A safe, low-risk way to replace one or more missing teeth. Natural teeth or dental implants can be used as anchors to support the suspended replacement teeth.

Dental Crowns

Decay or trauma can cause loss of tooth structure and can compromise function as well as esthetics. Extensive loss of tooth structure can best be replaced with a restoration that covers your entire tooth as in a crown. This “full coverage” restoration can strengthen your tooth and in the hands of an expert can provide a long-lasting esthetic and functional result.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants are made of titanium and have special coatings that encourage the fusing of human bone. The top of each implant has an internal screw channel so that crowns, bridges, and or dentures can be screwed in place.

Dentures

If you have lost most or all of your teeth, wearing dentures can be a difficult experience. Worrying about loose or painful dentures can be a drain on your patience and your health. Dental Implant supported dentures made by a specialist in Prosthodontics can change your life?

Extractions

While many of us do our best to keep our teeth healthy, sometimes a tooth needs to be taken out to keep you healthy. In these cases, an extraction is necessary.

Fillings

Dental fillings are the most conservative way to restore smaller areas of tooth decay. In a dental expert's hands, these types of restorations can be made to conserve as much of your natural tooth as possible while providing a restoration that is almost indistinguishable from the natural tooth. Both resin and porcelain fillings can be adhesively bonded to your natural tooth to add strength.

Root Canal

A root canal is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical endodontic treatment. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves opening the crown of the tooth, exposing the roots and pulp of the tooth. When the pulp and root is exposed the infected areas of the tooth are removed.

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.

Oral Hygiene

At New Health Dental, we believe that getting your teeth cleaned every 6 months keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible.

Veneers
