General dentistry is the branch that focuses on the prevention of oral infection and injury. You can keep your smile healthy for a lifetime when you’re armed with knowledge and the right tools!
We’re sorry if we sound like a broken record and oral hygiene routines feel like a chore to maintain, but their importance can’t be overstated. Performed properly, brushing and flossing keep plaque and bacteria from building up and causing infection and decay.
When we use the word zap, we mean that it’s pretty effortless and fast to perform laser cleanings! Using a laser means your cleanings are precise, with only diseased gum tissue being removed from around the roots of your teeth.
To be sure your hard work is paying off, come see us. We’ll let you know if you could benefit from a laser cleaning or if there’s anything to be concerned about—or just congratulate you on a job well done!
That amounts to one death per hour. A large part of the reason oral cancer claims so many lives is because it’s often detected in later stages. That’s why we screen our patients during each examination and provide you with the information you need.
If you or a loved one play contact sports without wearing a mouthguard, your smile could be in danger of serious injury. On a similar note, if you grind your teeth and clench your jaw in your sleep, you could be wearing down your enamel.
Schedule a visit with us to learn more about oral cancer prevention and detection, and to get yourself or your loved ones fitted for custom mouthguards or nightguards for safe, happy smiles!
Dental sealants can provide a layer of protection from cavities for adults with an increased susceptibility to decay and children still learning how to brush. They’re safe, painless, fast to apply, and the best part? Sealants reduce the risk of decay by almost 80%!
