How You Can Benefit From Being Proactive With Your Oral Health

You may be surprised to learn that some people only go to the dentist when it’s an emergency. They do not get regular check-ups, cleanings, or X-rays and will wait until the pain is unbearable before seeking treatment. We recommend a much more proactive approach to oral healthcare because staying on top of your dental health has enormous advantages over waiting until it’s urgent. Please keep reading to learn more.

Enjoy A Pleasant Dental Experience

It’s common for people to joke about how much they dislike going to the dentist. We don’t take it personally, though, because we know that for many patients, it’s no laughing matter. For these patients, fear, anxiety, and past bad experiences are keeping them from getting needed care. That is why our entire staff makes a concerted effort to create the most welcoming, calming, and positive atmosphere possible for every patient. For those who may need a little extra assistance, we offer sedation. Sedation dentistry helps patients who would otherwise avoid the dentist get essential oral healthcare.

The Vital Link Between Your Oral Health And Your Overall Well-Being

Was one of your New Year’s resolutions to take better care of yourself? Are you currently on a journey to become healthier? Most of the time, when we think about health and wellness, we focus on diet, exercise, and reducing stress. However, we tend to overlook something crucial to overall well-being: oral health. Keep reading to learn more about this important relationship.

Restorative Dentistry Can Save Your Smile

Taking care of your oral health is important, not just for your smile, but for your physical and mental well-being too. When a problem arises, like a cavity or a toothache, more often than not, you will need a restorative treatment to repair the damage, relieve the pain, and recover the full function of your smile. Restorative dental treatments are some of the most common procedures Dr. Peterson performs, but they are also some of the most important, because they are truly healing and transformative.

Many patients love this option because of its many benefits. We are excited to announce that we have been awarded the status of Gold Invisalign provider. Read on to learn more about what this means and how it relates to your care.

Do You Suffer from This Common Dental Disease?

At James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we continually stress the importance of maintaining a proper oral hygiene routine. We see most patients only a few times during the year, and that means they need to be diligent about properly cleaning and caring for their teeth on their own. Many patients assume that preventing tooth decay is the reason we are so passionate about cleaning teeth properly. Aside from decay, there are other harmful conditions you can develop that can seriously affect your oral health now and in the future. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is one of these issues.
