Family Dentistry in Sandy You Can Trust
If you take care of your teeth, they’ll take care of you. Good dental hygiene is an important part of long-term health that can often be overlooked in favor of things like weight management. Your teeth need appropriate care, too, though.
Ensuring that both you and members of your family get a regular dental exam helps to safeguard against problems such as gum disease and cavities. Preventive care like this can help you catch problems before they might otherwise become apparent.
That’s particularly important, given that even those of us with good dental hygiene can unexpectedly experience problems. Your teeth, like the rest of your body, change as you age. Routine cleanings will help minimize the chance for such events going badly.
With that in mind, we offer a number of services:
- Routine dental exams
- Teeth cleaning
- Dental X-rays
- General dental care guidance
Through these services, we enable local families to enjoy their lives without having to be frustrated by tooth pain. We are happy to work with your schedule to help you find the right appointment slot for you to ensure that you get the care that you need.
A word on dental X-rays
X-rays are an important part of dental care that we like to do every so often. They help us to have a clearer picture of the state of your teeth and their health than a physical examination alone would provide. X-rays are particularly useful for locating cavities early so that we can intervene before they get too large.
Annual X-rays are relatively common, but you may have a different schedule suggested depending on your dental health. A customized schedule will help serve your needs better than a standardized one. We recommend discussing an X-ray schedule with your dentist if you haven’t already.
The truth is that, more often than not, we simply provide a teeth cleaning and oral health examination during a visit. We can arrange for more complex procedures, as necessary. However, one of our biggest goals is to create awareness of dental hygiene techniques in our patients.
Working toward good dental hygiene
Working together with you and your family to establish routine teeth cleanings for all is an important part of our goal in offering family dentistry. Teaching children how to care for their teeth ensures they’ll grow into a healthier adulthood, while teaching parents can help ensure their teeth last longer.
Building on good choices and helping avert problems works to reduce the likelihood of having to give up a favorite treat. We may still make regular recommendations on things to avoid in your diet, though, if there are particularly problematic elements.
Additionally, our dentists and hygienists will be happy to answer any questions you might have about particular procedures, such as fillings, to help ease any worry. In this way, we can help reduce misinformation about certain procedures, as well as continue to encourage healthier smiles in our community.
