  • Health History Form
  • List of medications / medical conditions that may affect your treatment

How do I know if I am brushing and flossing correctly?

Brushing and flossing properly has always been one of the best ways to care for your teeth. If you are not sure about your brushing and flossing technique, please ask us at your next visit. We would be happy to show you the correct way to keep those pearly whites healthy.

How often should I have my teeth examined?

We recommend most patients come in twice a year for routine examinations. These visits play an important role in helping us detect any issues with your oral health (including gum disease and cavities) and allow us to correct it before it becomes a bigger problem.

Why do we use fluoride?

The combination of bacteria and sugar create an acidic oral environment. The acidic environment can lead to a loss of minerals that help keep teeth strong and a breakdown of tooth structure. Topical fluoride is a localized application of minerals that is absorbed by the tooth surface within minutes. The topical fluoride application helps restore minerals in the tooth that can help fight decay.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontitis is the serious and advanced stage of gum disease, which can include bone loss. The gum tissue and bone that surround and support your teeth could become seriously damaged and the teeth affected could become loose and fall out. Periodontitis occurs when the early stage of periodontal disease, known as gingivitis, is left untreated.
