Keeping smiles whole and healthy from day one is always our top priority. By practicing good oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular checkups with our dentist, you can help keep your smile bright and healthy for many years to come. At Columbia River Dentistry in Vancouver, Washington, we are committed to providing you and your family with the dental care you need to reach healthier and more functional smiles.
General and family dentistry is a branch of dental care whose aim is to help you and your family achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Depending on your individual dental needs, our dentist may recommend one or more of our general and family dental services. Our dental team will make sure that you understand our treatment options so that you can take an active part in your dental care and that of your family. The following will give you an idea of some of the procedures that fall under the category of general dentistry at our office:
- Dental Hygiene Appointments: It’s important to always visit your dentist every 6 months for proper check-ups and cleanings in order to prevent decay.
- Gum Disease Treatment: Periodontal disease, or gum disease, can eventually result in the loss of multiple teeth. This is due to the bacteria found in the hard deposits, or tartar, that form on the teeth when dental hygiene is not properly maintained. These bacteria attack the gums, which can become inflamed and bleed frequently. The first step in preventing periodontal disease is by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly.
At Columbia River Dentistry, we also offer metal-free dentistry. Our dental restorations are not made with metal, but with aesthetic, tooth-colored materials.
