Regular dental exams are vital to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. While brushing and flossing are important, they alone are not enough to ensure proper oral health. Our routine examinations allow us to get an overall ideal of your current state and help prevent any potential issues. We recommend scheduling a visit every 6 months.
If you grind your teeth at night, you should consider investing in a mouth guard. This will act as a barrier between your top and bottom teeth and prevent them from grinding into each other. All night guards are custom fitted and created in our on-site lab.
Taking good care of your gums is just as important as having healthy teeth. If bacteria grows under the gum, it can lead to inflammation and eventually tooth loss. Symptoms can range from swollen gums (gingivitis) to more serious health complications like coronary artery disease. If you think you might have gum disease, please contact our office immediately.
