Are my files transferable to your office?

How many times a year should I have my teeth cleaned?
You should have your teeth cleaned every six months, twice a year is the recommended numbers of times you should visit your dentist or hygienist. Digital X-rays will help find problem areas, as well as regular visits with a dental exam, will help keep small problems (like tartar) from becoming bigger problems – like gum inflammation that can lead to tooth loss.

What are my options for replacing a missing tooth?
The standard of care for missing teeth now are dental implants – as they are the most similar to your natural tooth structure and eliminate the need to change the structure of adjacent teeth. If you have a missing tooth you have several options. Each case would be different so it’s best to go into our dental office and get a professional opinion, but some options include dental implants, fixed bridges, and partial dentures.
