Dr’s James P. Hoffman and Anthony R. Hormanski are 1980 graduates of Loyola University Dental School. They have attended various continuing education classes including advanced instruction in endodontics, periodontics, dentures, cosmetic dentistry. Both doctors have lived in the local communities for over 30 years.
Although appointments may differ due to the condition of the teeth, most involve the following:
X-Rays: If this is your first visit in a year or more, the technician may take X-rays that the dentist will review. X-rays help the dentist diagnose cavities and gum disease.
General Teeth Cleaning: Your hygienist will scrape the tartar buildup from your teeth, both above and below the gum line. Let them know if you feel any pain so they can inform the dentist. They will floss and polish your teeth. In many cases, they will also give you fluoride as a way of preventing decay.
Dentist Visit: The hygienist and dentist will talk with you about your teeth. The dentist may take a “pocket reading” to determine where your teeth connect with the gums. A deep pocket allows more bacteria and has a higher probability of gum disease. Be sure to ask any questions you have while the dentist is there.
After Your Visit
The hygienist or dentist may make recommendations about brushing or flossing. If you have a cavity, please schedule an appointment to have it corrected as soon as possible. Enjoy a diet with lots of vegetables and make sure you get enough vitamins. Finally, if you notice any pain in your teeth or gums, please contact your dentist office as soon as possible.
