Routine Dental Cleanings and Exams
When you and your family stay up to date on dental cleanings and exams, we can prevent dental decay. We can often catch damage and decay in the early stages. This allows for quicker, easier procedures such as dental fillings. We’re able to catch even the smallest amounts of dental decay due to our comprehensive exams during each visit.
In order to get the best preventive care, we recommend coming to see us every six months. Additionally, we highly recommend teaching your family good oral hygiene habits at home. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day for about two minutes. Also, you should teach your kids to floss at least once a day to remove food scraps from between their teeth. Finally, using a mouthwash without alcohol can help keep your smiles fresh and clean.
Gum Disease Affects More Than Just Your Smile
When you see us for dental cleanings and exams, we don’t just look at your teeth. We will also thoroughly examine your gums for gum disease. Since gum disease affects more than just your smile, we take it very seriously. In fact, gum disease can negatively affect your cardiovascular system in addition to other organs.
Due to bacteria from gum disease traveling through your veins, you could be at a higher risk for stroke, heart attack, diabetes, and high blood pressure. In addition to heart disease, there is a clear link between gum disease and Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and respiratory conditions.
To keep you and your family safe from gum disease and its negative effects, come see us regularly for dental exams and cleanings.
Orthodontics Treatments with Your Family Dentist
Though we don’t offer traditional braces, we can correct and align your teeth with our invisible braces. We offer both Invisalign and SureSmile, two trusted invisible brace companies, to straighten our patients’ smiles. We dedicate our practice to providing beautiful and functional smiles. We want to help you reach your smile goals.
Our invisible braces procedure helps both children and adults, whoever needs tooth alignment. Instead of attaching brackets and wires to your teeth, this comfortable method uses clear aligners to straighten your smile. With aligners, you can be more comfortable and more discreet about your smile maintenance.
We know that your family is busy. With Invisalign or SureSmile, you’ll spend less time in the dental chair. When we give our patients invisible aligners, we can send them home with their entire treatment plan instead of requiring visits every few weeks for adjustments.
