Cleaning and Prevention
Many patients are recommended biannual cleanings and examinations. Our practice helps create the best recall and maintenance schedule depending on each patient's needs. Not only does proper maintenance help reduce dental problems before they arise, they leave your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter. A professional cleaning removes hard plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. We are happy to discuss any questions or concerns with you.
What are some preventative measures I can take?
Brush with a fluoride toothpaste twice daily
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and longer lasting than treatments you find over the counter. As we age, our teeth darken over time. We comfortably brighten your teeth by five to ten shades in a single session, but maintaining good oral hygiene and steering away from certain foods and beverages will help keep any future whitening services to a minimum.
Crowns, Bridges, Veneers
Guards For Clenching and/or Grinding
Excessive jaw clenching and bruxism can accelerate tooth and jaw deterioration. To help our patients most comfortably avoid this, we customize day/night guards to their bite.
What are the causes of teeth grinding?
Stress or anxiety
Obstructive sleep apnea
We make every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, extractions are sometimes necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease.
