How Our General Dental Services Can Help You
Maintaining good oral health, practicing healthy habits, and keeping up with your visits to the dentist can reduce – or even prevent – the likelihood of several problems such as:
- Tooth decay, gum disease, and gingivitis
- Loss of dental enamel and heightened tooth sensitivity
We also offer high-quality teeth whitening.
Both children and adults can take advantage of our extensive range of preventive dental services. Our pediatric dental services for children include fluoride treatments, teeth correction or braces, sealants, and regular teeth cleanings.
Regular, timely, and prompt general dentistry services can also help in the detection and treatment of secondary health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, and some cancers.
Our trained general dentists suggest the following home care tips for optimal oral health:
- Brush your teeth twice daily and floss at least once a day. Our friendly staff will be happy to show the correct ways to floss your teeth
- Replace your toothbrush at least 3 to 4 times, especially when the bristles start to fray
- Use your toothbrush or a tongue cleaner to clean your tongue of bacteria to keep your mouth odor-free
