1. Prevent Problems
Let’s go out on a limb and assume that you don’t want cavities or gum disease. It’s the reason you are consistent about brushing your teeth (twice daily, two minutes each time) and flossing (every day), right?
Maybe you don’t follow the American Dental Association’s recommendations to the letter every day, but you do your best. It’s also why a professional cleaning and exam is so valuable. During these appointments, our dental professionals will remove any plaque or tartar buildup you may have, which can help stop cavities before they start.
We’ll also be looking for any symptoms of decay or gum infections. We would much rather catch those issue early than after they have reached more advanced stages when treatment may not be as simple.
2. Keep Calm & Smile On
Now, let’s turn to the elephant in the room for many people. Dental anxiety is a big obstacle for millions of people. You may be one of them, and that’s perfectly OK. You can learn to manage those anxious feelings so you can get preventive treatments and other services that are good for your oral health.
At our office, your comfort is one of our top priorities. You may notice that our office is different than what you might expect from a dentist office. First, we’re located in a historic home. When you come for an appointment, you are welcome to use one of our warm, cozy blankets or to watch one of your favorite TV shows to distract you while we do our work.
We also offer both inhaled sedation (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation (medication). Either can help you feel more relaxed and give you the assurance that you will remain pain-free during your care.
3. Restore Your Smile & More
In a lifetime, a lot can happen to your teeth. In addition to decay, your can become broken or chipped or just worn-down from daily use. In some cases, they may even become infected or knocked out.
While we hope none of those things happen to you or your loved ones, we can help if they do. We offer a number of restorative services so you can smile, speak, and eat naturally and normally once again.
4. Correct Cosmetic Issues
Last but not least, you can have the smile of your dreams. When you look in the mirror, you may notice things that you would like to change. This can affect your self-confidence in personal, professional, and social situations.
With the help of cosmetic dentistry, you can give yourself a smile makeover so you can feel more comfortable letting your personality show.
