The short answer - yes! Modern scientific studies show that electric toothbrushes remove more plaque than manual brushes. These same studies show that electric toothbrushes are perfectly safe for your teeth and gums. You are actually less likely to cause gum recession or tooth damage with an electric toothbrush than you are with a manual brush!
Many electric toothbrushes come with a timer to ensure you are brushing for the full 2 minute recommendation. Electric toothbrushes can be particularly helpful for anyone who has lost or limited hand dexterity, whether due to natural aging or injury.
Adding an electric toothbrush into your oral hygiene routine can be an easy way to improve your oral health!
Many factors contribute to an avoidance of regular dental care. One of the concerns patients most frequently cite is financial. We want to make it easy for you to get the care you and your family need to stay healthy, so we have a number of flexible options to help you fit dental care into your family's budget.
We accept most insurance plans. Insurance plans are designed to help pay part of the cost of dental treatment, and we will gladly file your insurance claims as a convenience. It's important to recognize that insurance is a contract between you and your insurance provider. Dental insurance is not usually as comprehensive as medical insurance can be, and you may need to work within your plan's limitations. Our staff members have a great deal of experience in working with insurance and will help you understand the ins and outs of your plan. We'll also help you maximize your benefits so you can get all the care you are already paying for with your premiums!
Your payment for our services can be made using cash, check, or credit card. We also offer interest-free financing to those who qualify through a local lending company. Ask us for details!
We take safety and cleanliness very seriously at our practice because they directly impact your well-being. Our team prides itself on maintaining a clean office so you can enjoy high-quality dental care in a safe environment.
We not only meet but exceed stringent OSHA and CDC sterilization standards. That means that every instrument and diagnostic tool you come in contact with in our office is sufficiently sanitized to protect your health. Keeping you and your family safe is our primary concern in every treatment we deliver. You'll notice our commitment to safety and cleanliness from the moment you walk through our front door!
If you have specific questions about our safety protocols, please don't hesitate to ask. We're happy to walk you through the steps we take to ensure your safety. We also believe that a clean environment doesn't have to be cold and uninviting. Even though we take great care to ensure cleanliness, we also offer a range of comforts to help ensure that your visit with us is comfortable every time. We're happy to take the extra steps to clean blankets, pillows, and noise-cancelling headphones because we recognize the enormous difference they make in our patients' comfort!
