Who doesn't love the fresh feeling of clean teeth? That is because our bodies recognize health as good, pleasurable, and preferable. Regular dental cleanings are an important part of maintaining your health as they not only get those pearly whites shining bright, but also reduce the amount of unhealthy bacteria that tends to build up on teeth over time. Plaque and tartar are just names for various stages of bacteria growing on teeth.
Checkups are also a time for us to prevent problems from developing or at the very least catch small problems before they become bigger. This involves a careful examination, good quality X-rays, and a listening ear. Sometimes a small problem may be developing that you don't even realize. Taking the time for careful dialogue with our patients gives us the ability to move beyond simply cleaning teeth and finding cavities. Our staff are experts not just at delivering dentistry but also at doing so gently, personably, and promptly so that you leave our office feeling refreshed, respected, and attended to.
