As a parent you may be wondering, “What is the ideal age to take my child in for their first dental visit”? This is a tricky question to answer because every child is different, they all grow at their own rate and have their own unique needs. The ADA recommends bringing your child in within six months of getting their first tooth, but no later than their first birthday.
We are excited to introduce CariVu. CariVu is a new diagnostic technology used to detect cavities ( dental caries ) or other defects in your teeth. It uses a special light and camera that makes tooth enamel transparent and darkens lesions or other damage in your teeth ( also called 'transluminal caries detection` or 'laser fluorescence' ).
Don't you hate it when you have a mild “toothache” feeling that something is just not quite right in your mouth? Today we’ll discuss symptoms of a few common dental problems, and when to call the dentist.
Should I get my own dental insurance?
When you think of insurance, you mostly likely think of medical, automobile, or homeowner’s insurance. These types of insurance insure you against a catastrophic loss, such as a major surgery, accident, or home fire.
