Protect Your Smile and Avoid Dental Emergencies

Did you know that you can actually avoid many dental emergencies? It's true! With consistent preventive teeth cleanings and checkups, we can help you avoid problems like tooth abscesses, dental infections, and toothaches.

For example, suppose you have a tooth that is decayed. In that case, your dentist can detect this problem early on during your dental checkup, allowing you the opportunity to eliminate your tooth decay with a simple dental filling. If your tooth decay remains undiagnosed or untreated; however, it will progress and could move further into your tooth, resulting in a painful infection.
