Today, almost 200 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. It’s a common problem that we are very familiar with.

Patients can specify which treatment they want with the front office’s “Comfort Menu” and “Please Handle me with Care” form.

The brand is not important, but a soft brush with a small head is recommended above others. A larger size or harder brush tends to cause irritation and contribute to the recession of the gums. The smaller head allows for more thorough cleaning without any damage.
We recommend bringing babies to a family dentistry around their first birthday. However, if your child is drinking from a cup and doesn’t snack or drink in the middle of the night, these habits contribute to healthy teeth and you can wait until age 2 to visit the dentist.
Invisalign is a series of clear teeth aligners. Throughout this process, it can be uncomfortable when you insert a new aligner. However, this is a sign that they are working and your teeth are moving as they should. Pain with a new aligner usually alleviates within a couple of days.
Neglecting preventative dental care is expensive and risky. Many people only see the dentist when they notice a problem. However, most dental problems do not have symptoms until they reach the advanced stages. This often leads to expensive procedures that could’ve been avoided with regular dental check-ups. A dentist can usually detect a simple cavity 3-4 years before you notice any significant symptoms. With a regular checkup, this can be taken care of with no pain and minimal cost. Without a regular checkup, that cavity has now turned into a root canal.
Basic brushing and flossing are the best ways to prevent cavities. Always spend two to three minutes brushing your teeth and floss at least once a day. Sugar intake can also increase cavities. Try to minimize the times during the day when sweet items are eaten and brush your teeth afterwards, or at least rinse with water. Chewing sugarless gum after a meal can actually help. This increases the flow of your saliva which acts as a natural plaque-fighting substance. And of course, keep up with regular dental checkups.
