Isn’t it amazing how many good changes have occurred in dentistry over the past 25 years? Okay, so this picture may be a little older than 25 years, but things have definitely changed a lot! We have the technology and knowledge to prevent adults from wearing full dentures or partial dentures. We can help our patients keep their teeth as long as they live.
We save teeth every day that might have been considered hopeless many years ago. We do that in a variety of ways: Dental implants procedures, laser gum treatments, early intervention into infections of the teeth and gums, teaching our kids early on about the importance of good home-care, sugar intake and regular visits to the dentist and hygienist. Along with early intervention, we can provide dental care to patients with little or no discomfort, while they watch T.V. or listen to their favorite tunes. In the old days, it was not as pleasant or pain free. Aren’t we glad things have changed so that no one has to be afraid of the dentist anymore?
