Protecting Your Smile
& Dental Health
General Dental Services
Prevention begins with the control of plaque and calculus, the main cause of decay and periodontal disease. In fact, the major cause of tooth loss in adults is periodontal disease, which is known as the silent killer of teeth because most patients feel no symptoms until it’s too late. With regular dental visits, we can detect and treat any dental issues before they get out of hand.
We suggest scheduling your child’s first dental appointment between eighteen months and two years of age. At that age, we can begin to monitor the growth and development of their teeth and mouth. We try to make their visit as fun and comfortable as possible.
We also take the time to instruct parents and children on proper brushing and flossing techniques so they can enjoy good oral health for a lifetime.
The leading cause of gum disease is the build-up of plaque on your teeth. With regular cleanings, we can remove the tartar build-up before it causes gum irritation and disease. We treat the early stages of periodontal disease in our office but may refer you to a specialist for more advanced cases.
