Welcome to our Blog

One of the great things about dentistry is being able to enhance patient’s lives so significantly. Allowing people to look better, smile more readily, be free of pain, chew and function normally, live longer and have nice fresh breath for speaking and kissing are just a few of the things we do to improve the lives of everyone we touch. Even the most basic dental procedures are incredibly important – without good dental hygiene and regular cleanings millions more teeth would be lost every year. We hope you enjoy our blog and find the information within useful and sometimes even entertaining.

WELCOME SPRING!


Spring is Here and it is time for Spring Cleaning...

Spring is finally here!  It is time to dust off and brighten up all those dark corners... including your teeth!  Spring is a great time to book your recall cleaning at the dental office.

With teeth and gums in good shape, a hygienist or dentist can examine and clean your teeth in the same appointment.  If periodontal disease is present, it may require more than one appointment for our hygienist to thoroughly clean and polish all exposed tooth and root surfaces.  

Potential problems can be detected and contributing factors can be addressed.  Your teeth will receive a thorough cleaning, removing all debris, plaque and calculus that have accumulated around your teeth and early signs of decay can be noted.  Fluoride is recommended and a radiograph or two may be required to see those hard to get at places between your teeth.

Regular maintenance of your teeth, as with most other things, is the best way to avoid major repairs.  So when you set out your plan for spring cleaning, remember to include your teeth.
