The best way to minimize the severity of dental issues and the treatment required is to catch problems early with regular check-ups.
We are committed to excellence in dental care and have invested in the latest and best technology. We are continually updating our techniques and procedures to ensure our clients receive the best oral health care.
What should I expect at my first appointment?
One of our staff members will compile your medical and dental history during your first visit. We will then examine your teeth and gums, screen you for oral cancer and take X-rays of your teeth as needed. After we review your dental profile, we will discuss a diagnosis with you. We will discuss your options for treatment and fee payment and help you determine the best plan to fit your needs.
Why is visiting the dentist so important?
Visiting the dentist regularly not only will help keep your teeth and mouth healthy but also will help keep the rest of your body healthy. Dental care is important because it:
Helps prevent tooth decay
Protects against periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to tooth and bone loss
Prevents bad breath — brushing, flossing, and seeing the dentist regularly will help reduce the amount of bad-breath causing bacteria in your mouth
Gives you a more attractive smile and increases your self-confidence
Helps keep teeth looking bright by preventing them from becoming stained by food, drinks, and tobacco
Strengthens your teeth so you can enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles for the rest of your life!
If I have braces, do I still need dental checkups every six months?
Yes! In fact, it’s even more important for patients receiving orthodontic treatment to visit their dentist regularly. With braces, food may be caught in places your toothbrush can’t reach. This causes bacteria to build up and can lead to cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease. Your dentist will work closely with your orthodontist to make sure that your teeth stay clean and healthy while wearing braces.
