Many people only go to the dentist when they have a problem. Regular visits to the dentist are considered preventative. We work hard to catch problems in their infancy. We can detect areas of decay when they are small and fix them preserving your natural teeth. A small filling is much more affordable than a root canal and a crown which is needed once the decay gets to the nerve of the tooth.
The American Optometric Association recommends seeing your Optometrist every year.
YES! Your toothbrush cannot reach food and plaque in between the teeth and under the gum line. Flossing helps reach those places.
An eye exam is so much more than just checking your vision. Your optometrist will look for vision-threatening eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.
We suggest you bring your child in at 1 year of age or once they start getting teeth, whichever comes first. We want to help your child create a positive association with the dentist. We will discuss oral hygiene and eating and drinking habits. We will also examine your child’s teeth and place fluoride varnish on your child’s teeth.
The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends infants should have their first comprehensive exam by 6 months of age.
