Get to Know Us
Many people see the mouth as separate from the rest of their body. The truth is, it's all connected and problems in your mouth can cause or even act as an indicator of disease in other parts of your body. This is why teeth cleanings are an essential part of your oral care. It keeps your mouth -- and the rest of your body -- disease-free. Teeth cleanings remove the plaque and tartar that isn't easily removed through regular brushing and flossing at home. When left unchecked, plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, both of which can eventually lead to tooth loss and other serious health risks.
Gapped or crooked teeth can negatively affect your self-confidence and your oral health. These misalignments can make removing plaque through regular brushing difficult, leaving you at a greater risk of developing cavities or gum disease. While there are numerous treatment options available to obtain a straighter, healthier smile, many patients today prefer Invisalign for it's discreet, comfortable and removable clear aligners. Our dentist can evaluate your misalignment and let you know whether you're a good candidate for this treatment.
We use a variety of dental imaging techniques to accurately diagnose dental conditions and to create precise treatment plans and dental restorations. The particular dental imaging tool used by our dentist will vary depending on your unique oral health needs, but you can expect to have digital x-rays taken annually to monitor for deep cavities, infections, impacted wisdom teeth, bone loss and more.
