To keep your mouth healthy, we recommend twice-annual visits to our office for a checkup. During this appointment, you will receive a thorough and professional cleaning. This cleaning removes plaque and bacteria from between your teeth and areas that you can't possibly reach at home. Additionally, during your checkup, Dr. Fry will carefully examine your teeth and gums to identify any emerging issues that could be become larger problems in the future. The earlier we can identify and address problem spots, the easier and less expensive the treatment will be. Finally, Dr. Fry will discuss your at home oral health care, and offer suggestions and nutrition tips to keep your teeth in the best condition.
Patient education is a key service provided by Dr. Fry and his team. From the time a patient is a child, he addresses issues like proper technique and frequency of brushing and flossing. Dr. Fry embraces new technologies and he uses iPads when teaching patients about at home oral health care. He also encourages patients to call or email him or his team with any questions. From recommendations on a brand of toothpaste to concerns over a tooth that hurts or gums that are sore, no question or issue is too small.
If concern over costs is keeping you from making a dental appointment, don't let it. Good preventative care can actually lessen your overall dental costs. By taking care of your teeth and gums, you can avoid further treatment later. Additionally, Dr. Fry will never recommend procedures that you don't need and will always take the least invasive approach with your desired results and budget in mind.
