By looking for trouble every six months, we can often reduce your potential for large dental problems. For instance, left untreated, a small cavity can grow to destroy an entire tooth and spread to surrounding teeth. A cracked tooth can cause pain or break off and create additional problems. Furthermore, advanced gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss for American adults, and oral cancer causes more than 7,500 deaths each year. Caught and treated early, these diseases can be controlled.
If you have not scheduled a checkup lately, be sure to call us now to make your appointment! Children as young as two should visit the dentist, and by age four or five, a child should attend regular checkups.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. We follow infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to protect our patients and staff. Everything is disinfected from door handles and light switches, to counter tops and contact areas.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are taking extra steps to protect you and our staff. We would like to share with you some of the changes our office has made.
We look forward to seeing you and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you and everyone safe in our office.
