How often should I see my dentist?
We recommend scheduling an appointment at least once every six months. If you have periodontal disease or other oral health issues, we may have you come in more frequently throughout the year to monitor your gums and teeth.
Why do I need to have an oral cancer screening?
We recommend an oral cancer screening at least once a year with your annual exam. The screening allows us to take a close look at the gums and soft tissues in the mouth for any abnormalities or growths.
What is preventative dentistry?
We encourage preventive care by maintaining a diligent brushing and flossing routine, coming in for regular dental checkups and using products we recommend regularly. This can ward off costly dental visits and keep your smile as healthy as possible.
How often should I be brushing my teeth?
The American Dental Association recommends brushing the teeth at least twice a day. We also encourage patients to floss their teeth every time they brush to remove any plaque deposits around the gum line.
What types of periodontal services do you offer?
We perform several procedures and treatments to restore the health of the gums. If you have gum disease, we may recommend laser treatment with the Picasso diode laser or osseous surgery. We also perform scaling and root planing and gingivectomies at our office.
