Once we restore any teeth that need to be restored, I think part of the equation is really important to have you on a regular cleaning schedule because really our patients that we see twice a year rarely have emergencies, rarely have pain, rarely have things…large things go wrong. Speaking to kind of some of the fear and anxiety that’s fairly common in our profession, what happens is you don’t come in, and then all of a sudden, you know, you have this emergency, and so it’s stuff that has to be done right away.
And so part of my goal in really treating you with a lot of care and compassion is to convert you to someone that comes in every six months and looks forward to it. And I promise you, that’s the group of patients that just doesn’t have very many emergencies and looks forward to coming to the dentist because it’s not like, oh my God, I don’t want to find out what’s going on. So that’s one of the goals that we have, is to make you comfortable enough that you’re gonna come in every six months.
Create a Healthy & Problem-Free Smile
Dr. Jones and our team recommend that you visit us every six months so we can monitor your oral health. Early intervention for cavities and disease is critical in maintaining a healthy mouth and beautiful smile. It also helps keep your dental care affordable, by preventing big and costly problems. We offer you several general dentistry services:
- Dental Cleanings and Exams – It is best to schedule a checkup twice a year. Our dental hygienist will clean and polish each of your teeth, then look over your teeth and gums for problems. We’ll also check for cavities using an electronic cavity detector. Then Dr. Jones will perform a complete dental exam to look for any signs of trouble. If needed, he’ll make recommendations for restorative or other services to keep your smile healthy.
- Fluoride Treatments and Varnishes – When fluoride is applied directly to teeth, it strengthens tooth enamel by remineralizing it. The stronger enamel is, the harder it is for cavities to take hold. Fluoride can even reverse tooth decay when it’s still in the early stages.
- Tooth Sealants – We can coat the biting surfaces of certain teeth with these thin layers of plastic. The result is a tough barrier that protects your teeth against disease-causing bacteria.
