General Dentistry for the Whole Family

It can be difficult and overwhelming to try to find a different dentist for each member of your family, especially when they range in age from very young to adult. That’s where a dentist specializing in general dentistry, like Dr. Michelle Munoz, can step in! Dr. Munoz provides dental care that covers all stages of dental development and is suitable for the whole family.

Dental Bridges — Sometimes the Best Restoration for Missing Teeth

You need to act when adult teeth are lost. Ignoring missing teeth may cause remaining teeth to drift, affecting your smile and disrupting your bite — which can lead to other serious tooth and jaw problems. The area around the missing tooth is also more susceptible to disease and decay. In the past, a removable denture was your only choice for tooth replacement. Today, implants are often considered the ideal solution. But what do you do if an implant isn’t an option?

Prevention Is a Family Affair

You need to brush your teeth at least twice each day using a toothbrush with soft or medium bristles. Overly aggressive brushing can damage your gums and enamel, but a gentle, circular motion will get the job done. Flossing once a day will remove accumulated debris and help prevent the buildup of plaque. Eating nutritious foods and avoiding or limiting sugars and soda can help avoid cavities.

A Barrier to Tooth Decay — Dental Sealants

We believe in preventive dentistry at Michelle Munoz, DDS, and that begins at home with proper brushing and regular flossing of your teeth. Sometimes, no matter how conscientious you are, some teeth, especially those in the back, are difficult to keep clean. And some people, for a variety of reasons, are just cavity prone. These are situations where we may recommend the use of dental sealants.
