Family Dentistry!

In today’s world, people lose more teeth due to periodontal (gum) disease, than they do decay (cavities).  Nonetheless, I do not want people to underestimate the importance of not only having regular cleanings, but to address decay in its earliest stages.  We have a special laser in our office, the Diagnodent, that helps detect and differentiate decay when it cannot be seen with the naked eye, and in many cases, even with digital x-rays!  Make sure you have everyone in the family checked out for decay.  In many cases, we may be able to treat early cavities with lasers that enable us to not have to numb the area!  What a great thing technology is!’
