Frequently Asked Questions
Your dentist in Council Bluffs, IA, recommends bringing your child in to see us by the time they turn 12 months of age. It is never a good idea to wait until a dental emergency! We do everything we can to make your child’s visit as comfortable as possible.
We offer sedation dentistry options at our practice to minimize pain and discomfort. We perform many procedures under local anesthesia and may recommend nitrous oxide or general anesthesia in some cases.
We recommend using an electric toothbrush with soft bristles for optimal brushing. As long as you are using the right technique, you should be able to maintain good oral health by brushing at least twice a day for two minutes each time.
We recommend brushing teeth at least twice a day at a 45-degree angle and using dental floss to clean between the teeth. This eliminates plaque and bacteria buildup.
Our doctors are trained to perform periodontal treatments including nonsurgical therapies such as scaling and root planing. We also offer periodontal maintenance treatments at our practice.
Many patients are good candidates for dental implants, a permanent tooth replacement option that restores the ability to eat and speak properly. Dental implants work just like your regular teeth and will reduce the risk of jaw bone loss over time.
