We can help you.

We understand that dentistry is not only about healthy teeth and gums, but also about how you function, your appearance, and most importantly, an enjoyable and rewarding dental experience.

For every new patient, we do a comprehensive examination of the facial, neck, oral tissues, teeth, and jaws to screen for disease, malfunction, or abnormalities.  This may involve taking X-rays to provide information not otherwise detectable. We can then discuss your needs, desires, and requirements and present you with a treatment plan and estimate of the cost of the treatment.

We provide a full range of high-quality general dentistry, including non-amalgam fillings, root canal treatment, removal of teeth, dentures, crowns, bridges, veneers, jaw joint treatment, implants, mouth guards, tooth whitening, children’s dentistry, thorough check-ups, and cleans.

Dental Hygiene FAQ’s

Good oral and dental hygiene can help prevent the following:

  • bad breath
  • tooth decay
  • gum disease
  • and can help you keep your teeth as you get older.

Establishing & creating good oral hygiene and dietary habits has shown to be essential to achieving & maintaining, your oral health.

Oral health can affect both your physical & emotional well-being as it can impact upon the following

  • Appearance
  • Interpersonal relations
  • Diet
  • Nutrition

In addition, a disease of the mouth can affect the rest of the body and is a contributing factor to a number of secondary conditions.

At home, you can practice good oral hygiene by completing the following:

  1. Brush twice a day for at least two minutes.
  2. Floss daily to remove plaque from places your toothbrush can’t reach.
  3. Eat a healthy diet to provide the nutrients necessary (vitamins A and C, in particular) to prevent gum disease.
  4. Avoid cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, which are known to contribute to gum disease and oral cancer.

Visit the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams. This is one of the most effective ways to detect the early signs of gum disease

If you don’t take care of your teeth and gums, your poor oral hygiene can actually lead to other health problems, which can include:

Oral and facial pain

This pain may be largely due to infection of the gums that support the teeth and can lead to tooth loss. Gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease, is extremely common among individuals.

Problems with the heart and other major organs

Mouth infections can affect major organs. For example, the heart and heart valves can become inflamed by bacterial endocarditis, a condition that affects people with heart disease or anyone with damaged heart tissue.

Digestion problems

Digestion begins with physical and chemical processes in the mouth, and problems here can lead to intestinal failure, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive disorders.

Simply put cosmetic dentistry is all to do with the look of the teeth. Including things like

  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental crowns,
  • Dental veneers
  • Implants
  • Bridges

Whereas general dentistry is all about

  • Dental cleans
  • dental checkups
  • X-rays
  • Hygiene
  • Extractions

This is a very common question asked in the dental world. Flossing at any time is better than not flossing at all

However, flossing before you brush is more effective. If you floss before you brush your teeth it will release any bacteria, plaque and food stuck between the teeth.

Then when you brush your teeth you are brushing it all away.

Flossing before can get rid of all the food between your teeth before you brush.

Depending on what you ate you may have to floss before and after to get everything out between the gaps.

You should be visiting twice a year for a dental clean and check-up.

Without regular visits, cavities can quickly turn into infected teeth.

These regular visits help prevent minor dental problems from progressing to a point of no return.

If you don’t want to experience severe pain or spend tons of money to fix what could have been minor dental problems, make sure you never miss a dental cleaning and exam.

With lots of toothbrushes on the market, we understand why you might not know which one to choose.

If you can, we highly recommend investing in a good electric toothbrush. Electric toothbrushes brush your teeth significantly better than manual toothbrushes, especially for lazy brushers.

Electric toothbrushes have built-in timers so you brush your teeth for two minutes. Some even have Bluetooth capability that connects with an app on your phone and tells you if you missed any areas brushing and still offers many more benefits.

If you can’t afford an electric toothbrush – no problem. Choose a manual toothbrush with soft bristles and one that has an ADA recommendation on it.

As long as you brush in circles around your entire mouth, you can get your teeth just as clean as you would with an electric toothbrush.

Just because your cavity doesn’t hurt doesn’t mean you don’t need a filling. Cavities don’t always cause symptoms.

However, if you leave it untreated, it will only get worse and then infect your tooth root causing the need for a root canal. In some cases, an infected tooth will stop causing the pain because the tooth’s nerve has died.

It’s important to get a filling as soon as possible to prevent causing more damage to your tooth.

Not every dental problem can be seen with the naked eye. Dental x-rays give us an inside look at what’s going on in your mouth. We can use the x-rays to discover:

  • Impacted teeth,
  • Cracked or
  • Damaged teeth,
  • Cavities,
  • &much more

Is it Worse to Skip Brushing or Flossing?

If you’re thinking of skipping either brushing or flossing for some reason, then we would advice you that flossing is more important as long as it’s done correctly.

Flossing helps remove plaque and debris stuck between the teeth and underneath the gumline.

The two areas that are most likely to cause cavities and gum disease.

BUT both are extremely important and you shouldn’t skip out on either, though.
