Interesting Facts from A to Z

We want the best for your teeth. That's why we have put some information together here to help you the next time you visit our practice. It can also help you understand more about prevention and other dentistry topics.

 

Preventative care: At least every 6 months

 

Common sense tells us that preventing dental disease is less costly and more rewarding than correcting problems once they occur.  By teaching you proper dental care habits and sharing the latest preventive techniques, we are meeting one of our goals - promoting overall good health!

 

Our registered dental hygienist is qualified to perform prophylaxis, administer fluoride treatments, take radiographs and apply protective sealants.

 

Our practice continually looks for advances to ensure that we are providing the optimum level of oral health care to our patients.  We now provide an oral cancer screening.  Vizilite Plus improves the ability to identify suspicious areas in the mouth at the earliest stages!  This test is a simple and painless examination that is offered to you annually.  

 

Start 'em early

Proper oral hygiene habits are learned early.  As soon as your toddler can manage a toothbrush (24-30 months), supervised brushing instructions can create beneficial habits that last a lifetime.  Remember, children under 6 should be supervised at all times as swallowing toothpaste can be harmful.

 

Dr. Kovitch recommends a first dentist visit somewhere in the third year.  Establishing regular visits at a young age has proven to improve the health and stability of adult teeth.
