WHEN SHOULD I BRING MY CHILD TO THE DENTIST?
It is a good idea to bring your young children along with a parent’s hygiene dental visit. The child can have a ride in the chair and get familiar with the surroundings. We recommend an examination when the child is 3 years of age or sooner if the parent has concerns.
IF I HAVE CROOKED OR DISCOLOURED TEETH WHAT SERVICES DOES THE PRACTICE OFFER?
If you have crooked teeth and are a good candidate, we could offer referrals for invisalign or conventional orthodontics to straighten your teeth or crowns or veneers to create straighter looking teeth.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO TREAT AN ABSCESSED TOOTH?
In most cases patients wants to save their teeth. When possible a root canal treatment option will allow the patient to keep their beautiful teeth. All other viable options will be discussed with the patient before treatment begins.
DID YOU KNOW?
Gum disease is the biggest cause for tooth loss. To prevent this, brush your gums while brushing and floss at least once a day.
When flossing your teeth, insert the floss at an angle to help keep you from hitting your gums.
A toothbrush with softer bristles does the least damage to teeth. One with a small head makes it easier to reach every part of your mouth.
Cavities are most common among children, teenagers and the elderly.
A low-sugar diet provides the best oral health. Crunchy fruits and vegetables scrub your teeth.
