Preventive Dentistry

When teeth and gums are healthy, it is recommended by the American Dental Association that adults and children visit the dentist and have their teeth professionally cleaned and examined twice a year.  For patients with gum disease, professional cleaning is recommended every 3-4 months as well as for those with special dental needs, such as children undergoing orthodontic treatment (ie braces).  If you are unsure how often you should visit the dentist, we would be glad to assist.

Tooth sensitivity may be caused by many factors including worn or chipped enamel, receded gums and gum disease, decay/cavities, clenching and grinding, cracks and infected or abscessed roots.  Sometimes the sensitivity can be exacerbated by hot or cold liquids and foods, acidic foods, sweets, chewing and even certain toothpaste.  Tooth sensitivity can often be treated effectively but it is essential to first determine the underlying cause.  If you are experiencing tooth sensitivity we would be glad to take a look and help you determine the cause and the best method of treatment.
