Please bring the following documents when you visit our practice:
A typical first appointment at our practice can last around 30-45 minutes. However, keeping an extra thirty minutes in mind would be wise. That being said, the length of the first appointment will depend on the condition of your teeth.
You may find financing and accepted insurances in our New Patient section. However, don't hesitate to contact us for more information on dental insurance.
We recommend visiting our practice every 6 months for dental checkups. However, if you have more prominent dental issues, we may recommend visiting our dental office every 3-4 months.
Besides flossing and brushing daily, we suggest incorporating the tips below to achieve excellent oral health:
We recommend soft bristle toothbrushes. Medium and firm toothbrushes have the potential to damage teeth and gums.
Both powered and standard toothbrushes have the ability to clean teeth well. However, traditional toothbrushes with various bristle heights or angled bristles clean better than those without.
We recommend purchasing toothpaste with the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance which contain fluoride. An alternative to fluoride is acceptable for children who cannot spit or are learning how to brush. If using fluoride toothpaste for children, use a small amount - about the size of a pea.
Sensitivity toothpaste is excellent for individuals who experience sensitivity to cold or hot food or drinks. Let our dentist know about your sensitivity, as this may signify a more severe dental issue.
Mouthwash helps protect your teeth from cavities and tooth sensitivity and provides fresh breath. However, regular brushing and flossing should not be replaced by mouthwash.
Children under six should stay away from using mouthwash to avoid the chance of swallowing it.
Visit our dentist if you or a family member have any of these issues:
Advancements in technology allow today's digital X-rays to release much less radiation. Although the radiation is significantly reduced with today's technology, our dentist will take additional steps to reduce radiation exposure by using a protective covering and targeting required areas only.
Initial exams typically include x-rays to help our dentist diagnose and review any dental issues. X-rays may be retaken every 1-3 years. Children usually receive more x-rays than adults because their teeth change and are more susceptible to dental cavities.
