Although we offer a wide variety of specialized services, we take care of your general needs too: cleanings, exams, extractions, wisdom teeth, fillings, sealants, and root canals.
We highly recommended that you see a dentist twice a year for cleanings and checkups. Regular cleanings can help prevent the buildup of plaque on your teeth. Plaque buildup can lead to tartar, cavities, gingivitis, and bad breath.
At these visits, we can not only clean your teeth and gums, but can also recommend changes in your oral hygiene routines to reduce your risk of more serious health issues.
Symptoms of Dental Problems
Aside from your regular visits, you should contact our office if you are experiencing any of the following:
- Persistent bad breath.
- Dry mouth.
- Sensitivity to temperature.
- Swollen/bleeding gums.
- Spots or sores in your mouth.
- Ongoing toothaches.
- Difficulty chewing.
- Loose adult teeth.
Each of the symptoms listed above are problems that can develop into more serious health issues if not handled in a timely manner. Our staff is ready to resolve these problems and improve your oral health.
When we examine your mouth, we are checking for markers of other health issues: oral cancer, periodontal (gum) disease, temporomandibular disorder (TMD), or anemia. In addition to our comprehensive knowledge of dentistry, we have excellent tools at our disposal: intraoral scanners, digital x-rays, and dental cameras. We can use these to analyze your oral health. If we see markers of more serious health issues, we will discuss those with you to help you determine what you should do next.
In the event of a dental emergency, call our office immediately. We will return your call within 24–48 hours. Please note that you must be a patient of record for after-hours emergencies, root canals, extractions, and wisdom teeth.
Our highest priorities are your overall health and your confidence. We want to improve your quality of life and give you a bright smile. Contact our office and become a patient of White Mountain Dental today!
