The dentistry we prefer to do is preventative dentistry – minor maintenance like patient education, routine check-ups and cleanings, sealants, and early stage treatments and infections.
Your mechanic would rather you come in when you first feel your transmission slipping. Your doctor would prefer you not ignore that tenderness in your kidney area and your tax person is there to help you lower your overall tax burden and would like to see you at the first sign of trouble.
One cannot emphasize enough the importance of early detection in keeping your subsequent treatment to a minimum. Sometimes, a patient has not been able to attend regular re-care visits and the extent of their decay or infection makes the prognosis of treatment more guarded or complicated.
We’re presuming that you like having teeth and want to keep them for as long as you can. And while you may have to “skip” a visit now and again, your regular check-up and cleaning appointment are essential in helping you keep your teeth for a lifetime. Today, dental disease is almost entirely preventable and your oral health is just as important as the health of the rest of your body.
At Your Smile Dental Care we are not here to lecture you – to guilt trip you for not flossing, not coming in, or having a mouth full of cavities. Although we may need to suggest a better home care plan for you, we believe in moving forward. Giving you some hope and providing you with a healthy attitude is progress and every step in the right direction is a step towards a lifetime of good dental health.
We care about our patients and treat them like family which is why we would love it if our patient’s had perfect check-ups and no cavities nor any other follow-up treatment. This is why so many of our patients come to us by way of recommendations from their family or friends. We sincerely appreciate the confidence that our loyal patients show us in this regard and look forward to providing the same level of quality care to our new patients.
