At Midtown Dental, our goal is to deliver the best dental treatments, sooner. We want our patients to experience the benefits of a healthier mouth and a healthier smile.
Maintaining or improving one's smile is achieved through the use of several methods including orthodontics, implants and the use of crowns and veneers. No one tool is the best treatment for everyone and evaluation for treatment is achieved through a thorough examination which should include X-ray evaluation and, very importantly, determination of a patient's expected outcome from treatment.
At Midtown Dental, we believe that, although perfection is not always achieved, proper communication between dentist and patient can lead to a healthy, improved smile! We deliver quality comprehensive dental care, providing patients with early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of oral health issues.
Our team uses new technology to diagnose tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancers, and other oral health issues in order to provide better treatments that protect and preserve your teeth. We are straightforward, thorough, and informative. Patients are never left in the dark; we keep our patients informed of their progress every step of the way.
If you want a smile that’s your crowning glory, you may need a crown to cover a tooth to help restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance! Schedule an appointment with us today to see if a crown is the best choice for you! Our primary concern is helping you keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright!
Many people believe that they only need to see a dentist only if they are in pain or think something is wrong, but regular dental visits can contribute to a lifetime of good oral health! If you are experiencing dental pain, don't put off seeing us. Schedule an appointment with us today!
Dental health is not limited to your teeth. Sores or irritations can develop in and around the mouth. Fortunately, they usually heal on their own within a week or two. If your mouth sore lasts a week or longer, don’t hesitate to contact us today!
How do sealants work? When the cavity-causing bacteria that live in a person’s mouth meet leftover food particles, they produce acids that can create holes in teeth. These holes are cavities. After sealant has been applied it keeps those bits of food out and stops bacteria and acid from settling on your teeth!
February Dental Health Month reminds parents that their children can avoid cavities! Brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, cleaning between your teeth daily, eating a healthy diet that limits sugary beverage and snacks, and seeing your dentist regularly for prevention and treatment of oral disease are the keys to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Did you know? Thanks to the durability of tooth enamel, our teeth actually outlast us. In fact, some of the most fascinating things we know about human history come from the study of our forebears’ dental remains. For example, we know that the first travelers to leave Africa for China set out as many as 80,000 years ago – and that early humans used a simple form of aspirin for pain relief – thanks to teeth!
All other tissues in our bodies have the power to repair themselves, except our teeth. When damaged, they must be repaired by a skilled dentist using caps, crowns, fillings or veneers. When our teeth fall out, the only options are partial or full dentures or dental implants. That is why it is so important to take great care of your teeth every day!
How can you prevent tooth decay? Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, clean between your teeth daily with floss, eat a nutritious balanced diet, and visit us regularly for professional cleanings and an oral examination!
As you age, it becomes even more important to take good care of your teeth and dental health. By adopting healthy oral habits at home, making smart choices about diet and lifestyle, and seeking regular dental care, you can help your teeth last a lifetime—whether you have your natural teeth, implants or wear dentures. Schedule a dental cleaning with us today!
Speed demons, pay attention! Your teeth should be brushed for a full two minutes, twice per day. Most of us fall short —the average time most people spend brushing is 45 seconds. If you’re racing through cleaning, try setting a timer. Or distract yourself by humming your favorite tune!
The dental health of you and your family is too important to trust to just anyone. We offer various dental services that can help create and maintain beautiful healthy smiles for your whole family! Schedule an appointment with us today!
