One-quarter of Adults are Candidates for Dentures
Did you know that around one quarter or adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution to missing teeth. They are so dependable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures and didn’t even know it. Do you think you might be a good candidate for dentures? To be a good candidate for this restorative treatment you should:
Wish to replace several or all of your teeth. There are alternative solutions available if you wish to replace just one or two teeth.
Have a healthy jawbone. After you lose a tooth, your jawbone will slowly become thin and less able to support a denture-- especially an implant-supported denture.
Be ready to take good care of your dentures at home and with routine cleanings and checkups!

When children visit a dental office for the first time, it marks the beginning of good oral health and habits that will last a lifetime. Healthy smiles can be an enduring part of your child’s development and adulthood. The health and comfort of baby teeth impact eating habits, the shape of their face and smile, and how adult teeth will come in.

We speak in a kid-friendly language to describe what we’re doing and will work with your child to keep them as comfortable as possible.

A cavity is a hole in your tooth which gets bigger with time. It's important to get cavities repaired before they become more serious or lead to infection. Cavities are caused by bacteria and dental plaque and made worse by sugary or acidic foods and drink.
Your mouth isn't just your teeth. It's a whole system including teeth, tongue, gums, joints, bone and more. When one aspect of your oral health suffers, your whole mouth suffers. Swollen, itchy, sore or bleeding gums can be an early indicator of much more serious problems.
Book a cleaning every 4-6 months or as advised by your dental hygienist.
A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay to its normal strength and esthetics. Filling a cavity prevents further decay.
