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 True Care Dental in Ocala 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 Ocala’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 True Care Dental in Ocala 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.

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

Locate Your Insurance Information

True Care Dental can confirm eligibility of your insurance with our Ocala 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 True Care 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 Ocala 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.

Oral Cancer Screening

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. The most serious of these is oral cancer.

We recommend performing an oral cancer self-examination monthly and remember that your mouth is one of your body’s most important warning systems. Do not ignore suspicious lumps or sores.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease is an infection caused by the bacteria found in plaque, the thin biofilm that constantly forms around our teeth. In response to these bacteria, our immune system produces toxins. Unfortunately, these toxins also target our gums and other supportive tissues, resulting in the infection known as periodontal disease. Without treatment, periodontal disease can have serious consequences for your oral health.

Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

A drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients respond purposefully to verbal commands, either alone or accompanied by light tactile stimulation. No interventions are required to maintain a patent airway, and spontaneous ventilation is adequate. Cardiovascular function is usually maintained.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling is a [non-surgical] deep cleaning measure that includes removing plaque from above and below the gumline. The root is also smoothened through planing to allow the tissue to heal and reattach itself to the tooth. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the targeted area and make the procedure much more comfortable. Antibiotics may be recommended as a means of controlling the toxic bacteria from spreading further that cause periodontitis.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee). Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw.

TMJ Treatment

The terms TMJ and TMD are often used interchangeably, but they aren’t the same thing. The TMJ is the jaw joint, and a TMD is a problem with the joint.

Emergency Dentistry

You never know when a dental emergency will happen. Thankfully, True Care Dental is Ocala’s most trusted Dental Emergency team. We have a team of dental experts to serve you.

Teeth Cleaning

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

Root Canal

A root canal, also called endodontic treatment or therapy is a dental procedure to help save a tooth with inflamed or infected pulp tissue. If you are having pain while chewing, swollen gums, or sensitivity, you may need this procedure.

Ocala Veneers

Our veneers are designed to look and fit naturally over your teeth. Remember, veneers are a permanent dental solution.

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 aesthetics. 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 Ocala, FL expert can provide a long lasting esthetic and functional result.

Routine and Deep Cleaning

There are two parts to your True Care Dental visit – examination and cleaning. Your exam will check for cavities, plaque, and tartar on your teeth.

Dentures and Partials

We know that life with dentures and partials can be both a blessing and a curse in Ocala, FL. On one hand, it's important to remove teeth that are painful, broken down and infected, yet on the other hand, improperly made dentures used to replace those missing or extracted teeth can make eating, drinking and speaking very difficult.

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.

Tooth Colored Fillings

A toothache can disrupt your life. Tooth decay, cracked teeth, and cavities will provide a constant and painful reminder. At True Care Dental we have completed thousands of fillings.

Root Canal

A root canal is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical endodontic treatment. The procedure is preformed 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.

Teeth Whitening

Let our team help you determine what whitening process is right for you, based on the current color and condition of your teeth.

Veneers

A wafer-thin glass shells that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to mask their shape, color, or size. The highest quality veneers are made individually by hand and are hard to distinguish from natural teeth. veneers can be used to remarkably transform the smile of patients who have worn, chipped, or discolored teeth. Slightly crooked teeth can be straightened as well. Hand-made porcelain veneers are typically very translucent and when bonded to your teeth they are very lifelike.
