Your dentist is as equally important as your family doctor, so through regular visits you will develop a trusting relationship with your dentist, the staff and the routine of common dental procedures. You will hear about new advances in dentistry that will improve the health of your teeth and possibly your quality of life.
Preventative dental care is preventing the beginning of or onset of oral disease. Our highly trained staff will take the time to discuss and educate patients on issues relating to their oral health so that patients maintain and keep a beautiful and healthy smile for life. We also take the worry out of booking your next check up appointment as our patients are placed on a regular recall system which is monitored closely by our staff. We offer a wide range of general dentistry from, examination, Scale and Cleans, extractions, fillings, veneers, crown and bridges and mouth guards.
In addition to daily brushing and flossing, visiting the Dentist every six months for a regular examination and clean, is important for maintaining good oral health and hygiene, and for early detection of any dental problems.
A scale and clean involves the removal of tartar (calculus) from the tooth surfaces by special dental instruments. Plaque is a soft, sticky film containing bacteria which builds up on teeth, can be removed by normal brushing. However, if plaque is not removed, it hardens to become tartar, and if left untreated, it will damage healthy teeth and gums, and can cause tooth decay, gum disease, supporting bone loss leading ultimately to tooth loss.
Going to the dentist regularly helps in several ways. Most importantly, you catch problems early when they are simple and easy to treat.That means there are less likelihood of having to have a major and possibly more uncomfortable, expensive procedure.
