The most important service any dentist can offer is a thorough examination and diagnosis of your existing conditions, a review of these findings with you, and a plan for both the prevention and treatment that serves both your short term and long term needs. Prevention is the key. Understanding the proper choices that suits your individual goals and values is also critical.
Dr. Charles Mayo once said “preventive dentistry can add ten years to human life.” It is important for us to understand the existing conditions, but it is even more important for us to understand how you got like you are and what can be done to prevent the reoccurrence of dental disease and the protection of your teeth and supporting structures from damage and loss in the future.
At SmileArc we recommend a thorough dental examination at least twice yearly as a way to meet these goals, so you can keep your teeth healthy, comfortable, looking great and functioning properly for a lifetime.
