Regular visits to your Ft. Lauderdale family dentist actually save you money

Visits to your family dentist in Ft. Lauderdale are important in maintaining healthy teeth and gums and preventing oral health problems. Patients who schedule routine dental visits incur less time and expense in having their teeth cleaned and examined twice per year than those who wait to visit the dentist once a major issue occurs.  At your dental visit, our doctors will examine your teeth and gums to check for signs of decay, check for swelling or recession in the gum tissue, and take x-rays to check the health of the tooth roots and jaw bone. 

When decay is detected early, our doctors can remove the decay while it is relatively small. Once the decayed portion is removed, a filling is placed to restore the tooth structure.  With composite fillings, your restoration will be virtually undetectable. When decay is left untreated, it only gets larger and may result in a painful toothache and a more expensive dental restoration. 

Good news: most insurances cover routine dental exams and dental cleanings twice per year. Even without insurance, preventative visits to your family dentist are far less costly than restorations needed to treat larger areas of decay.  This is precisely why insurance companies cover preventative visits. They are key in detecting issues before they progress and require more expensive treatment.

Maintaining your oral health is a partnership: by scheduling regular visits to your family dentist in Ft. Lauderdale, you are doing your part! Your family dentist and dental hygienist will do their part in keeping your smile healthy and beautiful using the latest dental technologies.  Buildup of plaque and tartar at or below the gum line can result in gum disease which can lead to tooth loss. Regular visits to your dental hygienist allow us to remove plaque from the teeth and around the gum tissue.  Patients who visit their dental hygienist twice per year are unlikely to develop gum disease. 

Dr. Nancy Rotroff and Dr. Gerard Wasselle are ready to partner with you to restore and maintain your oral health for a life time.  Call our office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at 954-928-1666 to schedule your appointment today!

Wisdom Teeth Extraction : Sooner is better than later

Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25. While some may have adequate room for this last set of molars, many people do not. This is one reason your dentist may recommend wisdom teeth removal for you.
