Dental care is an important part of creating optimal health. Just as it’s important to have checkups and visits with a medical doctor, it’s essential to regularly visit a dentist. Dental care provides many benefits to your health and happiness. At Arrowhead Ranch Dentistry, we care about providing our patients with quality dental care that keeps them in their best state of health.
Checkups, cleanings and thorough exams help us maintain your oral health and prevent dental problems from developing. On the same note, catching problems in an early stage during these appointments allows us to treat the problem in a more efficient and cost-effective way. Regularly visiting the dentist helps create a positive experience of health and prevention, whereas avoiding the dentist can cause problems to develop and worsen. Avoidance can actually create the worst case scenarios so many people are afraid of.
It is important to brush your teeth at least twice daily to help remove plaque and food particles that get stuck to your teeth. The standard recommendation is that you brush your teeth thoroughly for at least two minutes. Many people though rush through this time and don't clean their teeth adequately. You need to make sure that you reach every side of each tooth, including the inside and outside. To help keep your breath fresh. Don't forget to brush your tongue or use a tongue scraper. Last but not least, remember to floss.
Cleanings And Exams
Having a dental practice perform a checkup and regular cleaning gives a preventive approach to dental care. These general dentistry treatments help prevent problems with your teeth, gums and jaw bones, or they catch and manage problems before they worsen. During your visit, our doctors will take a picture of the current standing of your dental health and what would be needed to keep your oral hygiene in its best state.
A common request we receive is how to make a smile whiter and brighter. This is a relatively simple and quick treatment option that can be performed periodically. Certain foods and beverages, such as wine and coffee, stain the teeth and contribute to discoloration. The teeth whitening process provides a solution that lightens the shade of the teeth. Additionally, the process actually rids the teeth of plaque and tartar that tend to lead to dental problems.
Root canals are needed when decay and bacteria spread for too long without treatment. At a certain point, this decay makes it to the pulp inside the tooth. This pulp includes nerves, therefore infection generally causes a lot of pain. Since this is happening on the inside of the tooth, you won’t necessarily see the damage. Instead, you could feel it through pain and notice other signs that include bleeding, swelling and bad breath.
Our highly trained doctors and staff are ready to manage all of your concerns. We have methods to alleviate the pain and help you feel calm during your emergency dental visit.
Here at Arrowhead Ranch Dentistry, we are proud to offer laser dentistry to our patients.
Laser dentistry is not very common, though there are many benefits to using a laser during procedures. Wounds from the surgery heal much faster because there is less damage to the surrounding tissue. Lasers minimize bleeding and post-surgical bacterial infections. Often anesthesia and sutures are not needed after procedures when a laser is used.
Laser dentistry makes procedures much smoother, more efficient, and less painful for patients. People who are afraid or very anxious at the dentist should find dentists who offer laser dentistry. They will be surprised at how painless going to the dentist can be.
We are dedicated to staying on top of the latest developments in dental medicine, and we do this by offering laser dentistry.
If you have any questions or concerns about laser dentistry or how we can help your smile, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (602) 843-0010.
