Our top priority is preventing dental disease and maintaining optimal oral health.
We believe the patient and the dental team must work together to preserve and maintain your natural teeth, gum tissue and jawbone.
For you, the patient, it all starts at home with practicing good oral habits, as well as eating a healthful and balanced diet. It continues with routine visits to the dentist where the dental team helps to promote, restore and maintain your dental health.
We do this through regular dental exams, cleanings, x-rays, preventative treatments and restoration of cavities. By following this formula, you can avoid more severe and costly dental problems that arise from poor oral health and habits.
In our office, we only use digital x-rays that instantly capture and store the digital images on a computer. This type of x-ray reduces radiation 80-90% compared to traditional dental x-rays. It is also faster, safer, and more comfortable than traditional x-rays. Even though they produce a low level of radiation and are considered very safe, we always use lead apron shields and take precautions to take only x-rays that are necessary.
For new patients, we prefer to take a full mouth set of x-rays. X-rays which show the top and bottom teeth biting together are taken yearly at check-up visits so we can detect any new dental problems before they get worse and more costly.
You will have a chance to review all recommended treatments and ask any questions you might have. We are here for you every step of the way and enjoy educating our patients on their dental health.
