Patients should brush their teeth twice a day. While in an ideal world you would floss your teeth after every meal, we understand this isn’t always practical. At minimum, it’s advisable to floss every night before going to bed.
We recommend using a soft-bristle toothbrush. Harder bristles can irritate your gums. Soft bristles also have the advantage of being flexible; they’re better able to get into hard-to-reach spaces, ensuring your mouth is clean.
There are two major ways to whiten teeth at home or in a dentist’s office. Our experience and expertise allow us to use more powerful teeth whitening products, which can help you get a brighter smile, faster.
Most patients should look for a dental practice that offers both expert care and a comfortable environment. This allows you to rest easy knowing that your oral health is safe while also minimizing any discomfort you might experience at the dentist.
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, you want to know where you can go. Sometimes, dental emergencies can’t wait for a walk-in appointment.
It’s important to come in for a consultation for us to definitively say which orthodontic treatment is best for you. That said, as a general rule, Invisalign is designed to address mild cases of malocclusion. More serious cases are more likely to require braces.
Generally speaking, patients should visit a dentist at least once every six months. Even if you’re practicing proper home care techniques, we have the tools to remove plaque that cannot otherwise be addressed. Patients with periodontitis or other risk factors may need to visit more regularly.
