A smile can be the most eye-catching feature of a face. With dentistry's many advances, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth. You have choices that can help you smile with confidence. Talk to your doctor about the options most suitable for you, what your expectations are, and the dental fees involved.
We encourage regular checkups for individuals age four and up. We treat all ages so it is convenient to schedule appointments for the entire family on the same day. Most people find that it is valuable to have a checkup and cleaning at least every six months. Regular checkups include a thorough cleaning and an oral exam by your doctor. During the oral exam, your doctor checks the health of your mouth – teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. At each visit, your doctor also checks old fillings and restorations because constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack.
