Paying a visit to the dentist isn't typically something most people look forward to. However, ensuring that you keep regular, bi-annual appointments with your dentist is an important part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy.

Our caring and professional staff strives to make each patient as comfortable as possible during each visit. If you've been avoiding the dentist for any reason, please read this brief guide.
During a regular exam, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums, and evaluate your overall oral health and hygiene practices. If your hygiene practices can be improved, they will instruct you in the best procedures. They will also determine your risk for developing gum disease, bone disease, and oral cancer, as well as evaluate your bite. Any existing dental issues such as tooth decay or exposed tooth roots will also be evaluated. If you have stains or build up on your teeth, these will be removed with a thorough cleaning. Your dentist may also take x-rays of your teeth, gums, and bone structure for reference and comparison to past visits. If your dentist feels any treatments are needed, they will recommend them at this time.
