Frequently Asked Questions

We welcome patients of all ages to our clinic! We are happy to discuss your scheduling needs, so just give us a call and speak to someone from our friendly front desk staff!

We recommend that you brush your teeth at least twice daily using good technique. Our skilled oral therapists will be happy to review your technique with you and give you pointers to help you improve to get the most out of your home-care routine.

For most patients, we recommend twice-yearly visits for cleans and exams. If you are currently being treated for a particular concern, we may recommend that you visit us more often.

Coming in for regular cleanings will help keep your gums in great shape, but what you do at home matters as well. Brush twice daily and floss every evening. Our team will be happy to show you proper brushing and flossing techniques.

Other steps you can take to prevent gum disease include:

  • Don't smoke or chew tobacco.
  • Eat a healthy diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Use an antiseptic mouthwash. We'll be happy to recommend one.
  • If you have a health condition that can affect your dental health such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer, please let us know so that we can take extra steps to help keep your gums healthy.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
