What if I have a prescription?

Upon the doctor prescribing you with medication, a script will be sent to your preferred pharmacy. You can pick up the prescription within an hour of leaving the office.

What Causes Decay?

Decay occurs when plaque — the sticky substance that forms on teeth — combines with the sugars and/or starches of the food that we eat.

This combination produces acids that attack tooth enamel. The best way to prevent tooth decay is by brushing twice a day and flossing daily.

Eating healthy foods and avoiding snacks and drinks that are high in sugar are also ways to prevent decay.

How often should I see the Dentist for a check up and cleaning?

Most children and adults should see their dentist for a regular cleaning and check up every six months. People at a greater risk for oral diseases should have dental check ups more than twice a year. Tobacco and alcohol use, diabetes, pregnancy, periodontal and gum disease, poor oral hygiene and certain medical conditions are some of the many factors that your dentist takes into consideration when deciding how often you need your dental cleaning and check up.

Your regular check ups will help to keep your gums and teeth healthy as well as detect any early problems such as gum disease, oral cancer and cavities.
