Q: What is the best toothbrush to use?
A:

We recommend brushing your teeth at least 3 times a day using a toothbrush with a small head and soft bristles or a Sonicare® electric toothbrush.
This combination allows you to reach all the nooks and crannies of your mouth properly. Beware of toothbrushes with large heads — if the size of the brush does not fit your mouth, it will be very difficult to clean your teeth correctly.

Q: What is the best tooth replacement option?
A:

We offer a variety of tooth replacement options, including dental implants, dentures, and bridges. The type of tooth replacement option you choose should be determined by your specific needs and goals. For the tooth replacement option that offers the most long-term support, consider dental implants. We offer a few different types of implants to choose from to meet any dental need. Talk to one of our doctors to determine which tooth replacement option is right for you!

Q: How do I know if I have gum disease?
A:

Gum disease often isn’t noticeable until it becomes somewhat severe. Because of this, it is important that you see us every six months for regular cleanings and exams. We can catch gum disease before it progresses. Also, be aware of the following symptoms. These are signs of progressed gum disease, and immediate treatment is needed.

  • red gums
  • swollen gums
  • bleeding gums
  • gum tenderness
  • receding gumlines
  • loose or shifting teeth

Contact our office immediately if you are experiencing any of the symptoms above. We offer safe and effective gum disease treatment options.

Q: How can I improve the appearance of my smile?
A:

Our team offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions that can help you improve the appearance of your smile. If you want quick, dramatic changes, consider dental veneers or teeth whitening. These options can give you big changes right away. For more subtle but still highly effective solutions, consider gum recession therapy, dental bonding, and more. Let us help you enhance your smile and boost your self-confidence! A great smile can be the key to succeeding in all areas of your life!
