  2. These Symptoms Can Be Easy To Miss

    Patients sometimes ask us why we recommend they come in twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. We love this question because it gives us an opportunity to remind you how important it is to maintain your oral health. Bacteria in the mouth can harm your teeth and gums without you even knowing it. Read on to learn more.

  3. What You Need To Know About Cavities

    Cavities are a well known dental problem that many people will experience at least once in their lifetime. These little holes in your teeth can form for a number of reasons, including inadequate oral hygiene, poor diet, and missing regular check ups with your dentist. Most people know the basics about cavities, but do you know the science behind how they occur? Does all bacteria cause cavities? Does your body naturally try to defend itself? How does the unfortunate process of tooth decay develop?

  4. So Many Of Us Have Dental Phobia

    Do you find yourself putting off important dental treatments because you’re afraid of anxiety or fear? Or do you wonder why your family member has such a fear of going to the dentist, even if it’s just for a routine cleaning? Many Americans deal with dental phobia, or fear of the dentist. Some of these individuals are so fearful that they haven’t set foot in a dentist’s office in years. We want patients to know that we understand this fear, and that we offer a solution so that you or your loved one can get the dental care they deserve.
