Helping our patients maintain a healthy mouth and smile is the main goal of general dentistry. We prefer to provide more minor, preventive care than to see patients suffer with more intensive treatments from a problem that was not managed in time. We want to ensure that your oral health is in its optimal state and positively contributing to the health of your entire body. We are here to brighten your smile and pave the way for a brighter life.
When selecting a new dentist, there are many choices. If you have children, it adds to the pressure of choosing a dentist that can see everyone in the family. Family dentistry is very much like general dentistry but includes children and adults of all ages.
While a general dentist may only choose to see adult patients and a pediatric dentist specializes exclusively in the care of children’s dental needs, a family dentist can see everyone in the family from newborns to grandparents. We understand that tots, teens, and adults have different dental needs and concerns, and we are proud to help keep everyone’s smiles in tip-top shape through the years.
It is important to brush your teeth at least twice daily to help remove plaque and food particles that get stuck to your teeth. It is recommended that you brush your teeth for two minutes (or longer), though most people rush through this time. You need to make sure that you reach every side of each tooth, including the inside and outside. To help keep your breath fresh, you should also brush your tongue. Then, you can begin flossing.
