Why See a Dentist

Because a healthy smile lasts a lifetime!

Your teeth are an important part of your body and keeping them clean helps keep your mouth and your body healthy. By taking care of your teeth, eating a balanced diet, and visiting our office regularly, you can have healthy teeth and an attractive smile throughout your entire life.

How often should I visit the dentist?

Most people find that it is valuable to have a checkup at least every six months. Some patients that have been diagnosed with gum disease may need to be seen more frequently.

What happens when I visit the dentist?

At your checkup, you will receive a thorough cleaning and an oral exam by one of our spectacular hygienists and an oral exam by either Dr. Deiglmeier, Dr. Bannerot or Dr. Radkey. During the oral exam, The dentists will check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. Old fillings and restorations will also be checked because constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack.

But my teeth feel fine!

OK, but how do they look? A smile can be the most eye-catching feature of a face. With dentistry’s many advances, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, missing, or misshapen teeth. Along with regular oral care and checkups, we offer many choices that can help you smile with confidence!

I wish to express my sincerest thanks and appreciation for your level of service and treatment over the last two decades. After many years of fearing the visit to a dentist I had the good fortune of being referred to you. - Rita & Joanna
