I am super excited about this. Yesterday I saw a friend who had a root canal recently. 3 years ago it was a small cavity. We are becoming much more passionate about dental prevention, about patient education and early dental treatment!
I fully believe that every root canal I do, is the product of me not getting a sealant on that tooth 5 years ago, or us not communicating to you how important flossing is.
I would much rather educate someone on how destructive sodas are, than do a root canal and crown. These procedures take away most of your tooth, and nothing is as good as what God gave us. Just a few things we are excited about around here. Click here for more info.
Tooth & Gums Tonic is a professional strength formula from the Dental Herb Company that use truly natural ingredients. Tooth & Gums Tonic is alcohol free, made without chemicals, and it is also non-staining.
Tooth & Gums Tonic is formulated to reduce oral bacteria.
The truly natural tonic contains precisely calculated proportions of pure essential oils that work synergistically with extracts of organically grown herbs to maintain healthy teeth and gums and freshen breath.
The architect has done the main drawings for the new section of the dental office. We are increasing our size by over 50%. This will allow us to bring in another Dr. and to offer more services, letting us serve our patients better. This will allow us to continue to except walk ins, by giving us more space.
We never want to turn anyone in tooth pain away, and this will help out a lot.
The office will probably not even have to close during the renovation, and we hope that the process will be finished 30 days after they start. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Click here for more info on our office
In our office, we charge a flat $299.00 for the DASH whitening and $425.00 for our ZOOM whitening.
Other than the price, clinically there are a couple of differences between the two.
Another difference is the time in the chair that you spend. When doing the ZOOM treatment, you are in the dental chair for about two hours. The DASH whitening is almost half of that time. Depending on the patient, DASH can take anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes.
The ZOOM whitening uses a light during the procedure, where as the DASH whitening uses a stronger bleach than the ZOOM.
When brushing your teeth, you always want to make sure to use a soft bristle tooth brush, or an electric tooth brush. Angle the tooth brush at a 45 degree angle towards your gums in light, circular motions. Make sure not to brush too hard as this could cause recession, in turn, causing symptoms of sensitivity.
If you use an electric tooth brush make sure you let the tooth brush do the work. Be sure to use minimal pressure when applying the electric tooth brush to your teeth.
If you have any other questions feel free to ask your Hygienist at your next cleaning appointment!

In our dental office we use Yankee Candle to sweeten up the atmosphere!
There is not better feeling then walking in to your dental office and smelling the sweet aroma of an Yankee Candle! We have had many compliments on how nice our office smells and we owe it all to Yankee Candle!
The best part about using Yankee Candles are the variety of smells to choose from!
Since the holidays are coming up we have bought the new holiday smells Yankee Candle has come out with. They have everything from pumpkin spice to mistle toe! Another great thing about their candles is how long they last! We usually can burn one candle from open to close for a week!
While people are dressing up as dentists for Halloween, dentists are dressing up as other things! Our office last year had a lot of fun dressing up for this wonderful, candy filled holiday. We handed out candy and dressed up as our favorite characters! Everyone in our office got involved and dressed up!

Do not forget about your teeth while you are eating all this candy! Make sure you are still brushing your teeth and flossing daily! We love to see out patients, but we hate seeing them in pain!
