Your First Visit
Our team loves welcoming new patients, and we can’t wait to get to know you. In fact, that’ll be our top priority at your initial appointment. Visual examinations and cleanings are helpful in telling us what we need to know about your oral health, but only you can reveal how you feel about your smile and what your goals are for making it better. Dr. Julovich tailors your visit to fit your dental needs and, if necessary, work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that gives you the results you want in the best timeframe possible.
Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Everyone, young and old, needs to attend at least two check-ups and cleanings a year with a dental professional like Dr. Julovich. If you’re struggling with periodontal disease or your teeth are simply weak to decay, we may recommend more frequent visits so our team can better protect your oral health and happiness. During your routine check-up, we are thorough searching your teeth, gums, bite, and existing restorations for even the smallest signs of damage. Digital X-rays reveal what’s under the surface as well for a truly comprehensive look. Once we have all of this information, we discuss different services and help you select the ones that create the results you’re looking for.
Cleanings are also a vital part of your routine appointments at Trinity Dental, and for good reason. The sticky and colorless substance known as plaque constantly forms on teeth accumulating dangerous bacteria. Thankfully, plaque can be cleared away with diligent brushing and flossing, but missed areas of plaque develop into a much harder and more dangerous substance known as tartar. Thankfully, our talented hygienists Christy and Robyn fully cleanse these areas leaving your smile polished.
X-rays are vital to the dental care process revealing damage and decay that can’t be found with the naked eye. However, the traditional method for taking them had its downfalls, such as tedious darkroom development and significant doses of radiation for patients. Thankfully, new digital technology has saved the day! Now, our team captures multiple, detailed images of your smile and brings them up on a computer monitor within seconds – they can even be color-coded and magnified so patients better understand what they’re looking at. Radiation is reduced by up to 90% as well!
Keeping teeth clean can be a challenge sometimes, especially for younger patients who are still learning how to brush and floss efficiently and older patients who are more susceptible to tooth decay. In these cases, dental sealants lend a helping hand. Dr. Julovich paints this tough plastic material over the grooves of your back teeth. This “seals” the area shut and minimizes the chances of food and bacteria gathering there.
Do you constantly notice damage to teeth with no explanation why? Have headaches become a normal part of your morning routine? These are both common signs of bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, a common bad habit that affects millions. Here in Zionsville, Dr. Julovich diagnoses cases of bruxism and provides an effective solution: a customized nightguard. By wearing nightguards as they sleep, patients provide teeth the protection they need against grinding and clenching resulting in better oral health and a happier you.
