Periodontal disease affects more than 75% of the American population. Practicing good brushing and flossing habits at home is essential to maintaining optimal oral health. Our team of dentists and hygienists can teach you how to properly care for your teeth and gums, and can provide valuable advice about which products provide the greatest benefits for your smile.
It is very important to teach young children good oral hygiene habits so they can maintain a lifetime of dental health. A child's first few visits to a dentist's office can shape their outlook on dentistry and oral health for their entire lives, and we strive to create a comfortable atmosphere that allows children to feel completely relaxed and at-ease under our care.
When decay advances to the inner pulp of a tooth, it can result in many painful symptoms, jawbone degradation, and eventual tooth loss. Root canal therapy can remove the infected tissue, preserving the healthy outer structure of the tooth. This virtually painless procedure eliminates decay and infection before the tooth is restored with a custom dental crown.
Periodontal disease results in red, swollen, irritated gums that bleed easily. If left untreated, gum disease can cause the jawbone to deteriorate, and tooth loss can follow. We perform periodontal disease treatments ranging from traditional cleanings to laser gum therapy to restore your oral health.
In addition to practicing good brushing and flossing habits, keeping up with your regularly scheduled examinations and cleanings with your dentist is imperative to ensure your oral health. We recommend patients visit us every six months so we can identify and treat any complications in their earliest stages, and provide deep cleanings. We welcome patients ages 3 and older.
