We reserve time in our schedule each day to handle emergencies. Give us a call and we will get you in as soon as we possibly can to address your urgent needs. At the very least, we will diagnose and provide some immediate relief of your problem.

If time and the situation allow, we will complete definitive treatment of the condition right away. We understand that toothaches, broken teeth, and other urgencies are a big deal, and we make every effort to take care of your needs.

Your dentist is trained to detect and treat many problems before you are even aware of them. The goal is prevention – prevent disease, decay and tooth loss.

Your dentist can help you but only if you make the appointment. It all comes back to teamwork. Only you, your dentist and your hygienist can determine how often to make a visit, but for most people, twice a year is sufficient.

Checkups should not be a one-time event. They are necessary for regular assessments of the condition and the well being of your mouth. Check-up procedures vary with each dentist, but basically will contain: a review of dental and medical history, an overall examination of the mouth including oral cancer screening, a professional cleaning, possibly a fluoride treatment, and a general assessment of hygiene at home. Regular checkups are a MUST in the fight against gum disease.
