General dentistry focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral health issues. It’s important that you see our general dentists every 6 months so we can monitor the health of your teeth, gums, and jaws.
Even if you don’t have any immediate concerns, we’ll be able to prevent future issues from cropping up. The sooner we can detect tooth decay and gum disease, the less likely you’ll need intensive dental procedures.
At Grand Haven Smiles, we want to help you keep your teeth healthy for life. To schedule your appointment with one of our Grand Haven, MI dentists, give our office a call at (616) 209-4704.
The best way to maintain a healthy smile is to schedule dental cleanings every 6 months. While brushing and flossing your teeth at home is good for your oral health, you’ll need the help of one of our Grand Haven dentists to remove hardened plaque (tartar). If left untreated, plaque buildup can increase your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Fortunately, our team can remove plaque from teeth at your next teeth cleaning before you experience oral health issues.
Don’t ignore tooth pain. If you need emergency dental care, call our office as soon as possible. The sooner we treat you, the more likely we’ll be able to save your tooth. We act quickly to give you the best chance of regaining oral health after injury or illness. When you arrive at our office after a dental emergency, we’ll examine your mouth and take dental x-rays to determine the best course of action.
Brushing and flossing your teeth at home isn’t enough to maintain good oral health. We also recommend you schedule dental exams every 6 months so we can check for tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. We understand you have a busy schedule. However, routine oral examinations can help you avoid tooth pain and expensive dental procedures.
Many patients are unaware that they grind their teeth at night until it’s brought up by their dentist during a routine oral examination. Sometimes teeth grinding can be so loud that it wakes up your partner. If you suspect you’re grinding or clenching your teeth at night, call our office as soon as possible.
Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. To protect your child’s smile, we may recommend dental sealants.
Toothaches can be aggravating, but they’re usually not a dental emergency. There are plenty of reasons you might have a toothache and they usually clear up on their own. If you have a toothache that won’t go away, however, we can help. Give our office a call if you’re experiencing persistent tooth pain.
