Unlike other dentists, we take a holistic approach to your comprehensive dental exam by acknowledging the effect oral health has on the rest of your body. We recommend you schedule a dental exam every 6 months so we can monitor your oral health.
Brushing and flossing your teeth aren’t enough to fully protect your oral health. You’ll also need to make sure you schedule a teeth cleaning with our dentist every 6 months. Only a dental professional will be able to remove hardened plaque called tartar so you can avoid tooth decay and gum disease.
Most dental insurance plans cover fluoride treatment up to age 18. However, we may also recommend fluoride treatment for adults if you have an increased risk of tooth decay. Fluoride is a mineral found in nature used to strengthen tooth enamel.
Our team is committed to helping patients achieve their best smiles. As part of that mission, we sell fluoride mouthwash and toothpaste from trusted brands. If you are having trouble choosing products for your smile, bring it up during your next dentist appointment with us.
According to the National Institutes of Health, approximately 37,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral cancer each year. Approximately 8,000 of these diagnoses result in death. Fortunately, our dentist uses oral cancer screenings to catch mouth cancer in its early stages so you have the best chance of survival.
Sealants are made of plastic resins that bond and harden on the tooth’s surface. When a tooth is sealed, the tiny grooves become smooth and are less likely to harbor plaque. With dental sealants, brushing you or your child’s teeth becomes easier and more effective.
