Why Visit the Dentist?
Patients often ask about the benefits of visiting with us twice a year for routine care. During routine dental visits, we can take the time to evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums, the function of your bite, and screen for a range of oral health-related concerns. We will evaluate you for gum disease, tooth decay, oral cancer, and occlusal disorders. Our team also discusses your lifestyle habits, medical history, and other factors affecting your long-term dental health. Together with your help, we can create a long-term treatment plan that saves you time and money.
Monitoring your dental health during routine visits can often prevent the development of more complex problems and allows conservative treatment options for cavities or gum disease to be effective in treating early-stage concerns. Studies have consistently shown that patients who maintain their oral health with routine dental care enjoy better overall health and wellness.
Routine dental visits include a thorough professional cleaning. Our dental hygienists will clean all tooth surfaces and provide oral hygiene advice to address any dental concerns you have.

Preventing Cavities: Dental Care for Children & Adults
The prevention of tooth decay is a key component of routine dental care and helps you maintain the structure of your natural teeth for as long as possible. Tooth decay can affect children and adults and leads to tooth damage, gum disease, and even tooth loss if left untreated.
Dr. Kim looks for the early signs of tooth decay during your visit and can address your needs with a range of treatment options and types of dental fillings to minimize damage. Consider getting your child dental sealant treatment to prevent cavities and premature tooth loss at an early age. Dental sealants work like a protective shield that prevents harmful bacteria from penetrating delicate developing teeth.
