Dental X-rays Again?

Why Do I Need X-rays Again? Whether you are visiting our office for a specific dental problem you're experiencing or just stopping by for a routine checkup, we may notify you that it's time to update your X-rays. You probably won't need new X-rays every visit; however, if significant changes have occurred or you're experiencing any pain or discomfort, new dental X-rays help us diagnose issues and pinpoint the problems. Are my old X-rays good enough? They might be, but it all depends on [...]

Dental Care For Seniors

Why Oral Health Is So Important To Seniors As we age, proper oral health is just as important as ever. And, there are additional concerns to take into account.

If you have an aging parent or other loved ones, help them maintain their highest quality of life with proper [...]

Improving Self Esteem

Do Looks Affect the Way People Treat You? Positive self-esteem—how we feel about ourselves—is important to a healthy personality, the development of a positive attitude about life, and achievement in the direction we choose. It is well documented that people with a positive "feeling" about themselves do better in school, in business, and have closer, more meaningful relationships. One measure of self-esteem is how you feel about your physical appearance; or, more importantly, how you feel you look to others. The complexion, teeth, and [...]

How Often Do I Need a Checkup?

Make time for your T.L.C. That's Tender Loving Checkup! Routine, regular examinations let us catch tooth decay and periodontal disease before they cause major damage to your teeth... and saves you the added expense and discomfort of more complex dental treatment. For most of our patients, we recommend a checkup every six months, but there's nothing "magic" about that interval. Some need cleanings more frequently while others may not need to come in so often. Some mouths build up more tartar than others while [...]

Your Mouth Says A Lot at Your Checkup

Without Speaking A Word! Looking into your open mouth, we see so much more than teeth. In many ways, it's a window into the health of your entire body. Things like vitamin and mineral deficiencies are easily detected—and just as easily treated. Problems that might in the future become serious are spotted and responded to. That's why a dental hygiene exam is so much more important—and more valuable!—than simply a tooth cleaning. You may miss early warning signals on your own. They cause little [...]
