This is such a lovely place to go (as far as dentist offices are concerned)! I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist and was in the dental chair in no time. I hate waiting around and hearing the drill (bad childhood memory). Anyway, Dr. Mary Edwards was my dentist. She told me that herself and her mother are the two dentists for the office. Sure enough, my fear of dentists meant I hadn't seen one for a while so I had a cavity that needed filling. Most painless procedure (filling) I have ever gotten. Seriously, it was over before I could freak out about the drill. I would highly recommend using this family of dentists as your dentist. Oh, and I got a nice goody bag (toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, etc.) when I left along with a friendly smile from the whole staff.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
