Our Shelby Township dental office is a welcoming environment where we enjoy positive relationships with people of all ages while enhancing their ability to smile with confidence and eat comfortably. It is because of our respect and compassion for our patients that we have structured our office to include comprehensive care services with a particular emphasis on comfort.
While we enjoy seeing our patients periodically, our goal is for involvement that is based mainly on preventive interaction. By helping patients avoid problems in the first place, their ability to enjoy healthy, appealing smiles throughout their lives is, hopefully, because of our involvement and their understanding of how good oral health supports good overall health.
In addition to offering exceptional care and advanced technology, our patients frequently comment on the thoroughness of each procedure. Most patients immediately notice that each visit includes good communication. This helps each individual to better understand the ‘why’ behind what we do in addition to the ‘how’ that enables you to maintain good oral health between visits.
From flossing videos online to individualized care recommendations to advanced technology to advanced skills, we believe our patients are able to be proactive participants in having a healthy smile, for life! Included in today’s post is an easy-to-remember list of tips that will support your ability to prevent or minimize problems.
It is also important to know the warning signs of periodontal (gum) disease, which is the nation’s leading cause of adult tooth loss. These include tender gums that bleed easily when brushing, swollen gums, gums that turn red in color, gums that pull away from teeth (exposing darker tooth root areas), and frequent bad breath.
Keep in mind that gum disease begins without obvious warning signs. The goal is to catch it early, which can occur during your 6-month dental check-ups. Be very committed to these appointments, which are designed to help curtail treatment needs and expense.
Your smile is very special to us. Knowing our patients see their dental visits as an important part of their healthy living commitment means we are serving you as we intend. If you need to get caught up on dental cleanings or exams, or if you suspect you may have gum disease, call 586-739-2155 to schedule an appointment. Or, ask to begin with a no-cost consultation.
