How often should I visit the dentist?

How can I prevent cavities?

-Everyone can be susceptible to cavities, even people who brush their teeth regularly and avoid sugary foods and drinks.  We recommend brushing after meals, flossing regularly, and rinsing with a fluoride solution.  Most cavities happen between teeth where brushing doesn't reach.  Regular flossing can help prevent these types of cavities, and fluoride rinses will strengthen your tooth enamel and remineralize areas of your teeth that have been softened by decay.  Most importantly, visiting us regularly (every 6 months) can help provide you with specific tips for your teeth and services, such as cleaning, to prevent and battle cavities. 

Do you offer cosmetic dentistry?

-Yes, Shaw Dental Health offers the latest cosmetic dental tools and techniques.  Cosmetic dentistry, friendly service, and a comfort-focused approach are cornerstones of our dental practice.
