The value of a beautiful smile!

The value of a beautiful smile!

By Ruxandra Preda DDS

I hope more people would see their beautiful, healthy, trusty smile as an investment, as important as your house or fancy truck. If not more important, since they might only see your house once or twice a year, and you car maybe once or twice a week. But they will see your bright white smile all the time they are with you, and that might be 8 hours a day at work! Or they might just see it once at an important meeting or a sales visit if they are your customer, but that would make a great difference in the outcome...... (Read More)

That's why if you miss your regular cleanings you might need a deep cleaning, which is way more expensive and not covered by insurance! All that for missing a 1 hour visit with a Hygienist every 6 months or so! (Read More)

Low Radiation X-Rays

By Ruxandra Preda DDS

A lot of materials and equipment changed for the better lately, they are more health-conscious and environmentally friendly. Between the BPA free resin to low radiation x-ray machines there are a lot of improvements in dental offices in the last decades. We use digital sensors connected to computers these days instead of films for example, since they need less radiation and have instant exposure. Meaning that you can see the x-rays on the screen in just a second, and you can enlarge or change the contrast and brightness to be able to see the smallest cracks or cavities..... (Read More)
