Why should I visit the dentist regularly?

Many people hold off going to the dentist until a problem arises in an effort to save money. But the reality is, prolonging your dental visits can cost you more in the long run than if you visited regularly. This is because we focus on prevention during your routine visits to remove stubborn plaque from your teeth and check for signs of oral cancer, periodontal disease and tooth decay.

How often should I brush and floss my teeth?

You should brush your teeth with a soft-bristle toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, especially before you go to bed. Flossing should also be done daily to remove food particles from your teeth.

I’ve lost a tooth. What are my options for a replacement?

Smile Craft Dental provides a variety of restorative treatments to replace one or multiple teeth. These include:

  • Dental bridges
  • Dental implant restorations
  • Dentures and partials

I’m embarrassed about my smile. What cosmetic treatments do you offer?

  • Clear aligners
  • Dental bonding
  • Dental crowns
  • Dental inlays and onlays
  • Dental veneers

At what age should my child visit the dentist for the first time?

Our office follows the recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) which encourages you to bring your child in for the first dental visit about six months after their first tooth comes in.

Help! I’m afraid of the dentist. What can I do?
