As a new patient we believe in establishing a relationship first before rendering treatment. Therefore we will spend 1.5 hours gathering information to appropriately schedule for cleanings and restorative intervention if necessary.
The biggest difference is the attention to your care and ability to communicate. We strive on creating relationships which in turn means better care. You will always see the same doctor and same friendly faces who are knowledgeable about YOUR dental care and needs. We will always answer your call and treat emergencies as they happen. We are here to treat each person as if they are our own family.
Primary teeth are temporary, but they deserve good care. Strong healthy primary teeth are needed to chew food and pronounce words properly. They are very important since they hold space in the jaw for permanent teeth.
Not only is nursing natural but it is the very first influence on the babies airway. When a baby becomes intimate with the breast the tongue is forced to the roof of the mouth which naturally widens the arches and readies the jaw for teeth. Nursing also forces the child to breathe through their nose and use the natural filters that they are created with.
A routine x-ray exam exposure is less than one day of natural background radiation. It is also about the same amount of exposure from a short airplane flight ( approx. 1-2 hours). Proper shielding also makes the potential risk even lower. We utilize digital x-rays and aprons to decrease the potential risk to our patients.
