Dr. Richards Improves Oral Health
Dr. Richards encourages new patients to visit him once every six months for preventive dentistry services, but he understands many individuals feel hesitant about visiting the dentist. Whether you have had positive or negative experiences in the past, Dr. Richards and our staff will work hard to foster an enjoyable and comfortable visit. In addition, we encourage you to mention concerns and ask questions during your visits to promote successful doctor-patient communication.
Maintaining Optimal Oral Health
You may assume that cavities and other oral problems simply occur as a matter of luck or genetics. However, the truth is you can prevent most oral diseases and disorders through consistent care.
Performing excellent home hygiene is an essential aspect of preventive care, but you cannot keep your teeth clean and plaque-free on your own. In fact, plaque, a sticky bacteria-filled substance, binds to your teeth on a daily basis. You can brush and floss most of it away, but only a dental professional can thoroughly remove this substance, known for its ability to cause cavities and periodontal disease. Your dentist and dental team also offer preventive treatments for other aspects of your oral health, such as jaw tension and sleep apnea. Our approach to comprehensive preventive dentistry includes:
- Digital X-rays
- Intraoral Cameras
- 3D Imaging and Scanning
- Laser Dentistry
