At D. Ian Bell, D.D.S., we administer comprehensive general dentistry services to keep our patients healthy and smiling. Dr. Bell strongly encourages lifelong dental health through regular dental checkups every six months. He also recommends establishing a good oral hygiene routine for daily care. Brushing and flossing daily is the first step toward good oral health.
During your checkup, Dr. Bell will examine your teeth and overall oral health after a cleaning from our hygienist. By meeting with us regularly, we can prevent most common dental health problems including tooth decay and periodontal gum disease by monitoring and tracking the status of your teeth and gums. Maintaining good oral health will help you prevent larger dental procedures including cavity fillings, root canals and even tooth extractions.
To assist you in maintaining optimum health, we need to know about your overall health, including medications you are taking, and other diagnosis including pregnancy, heart disease, diabetes, and more. Some conditions may seem irrelevant to your oral health but are actually significant to it. Please keep us informed.
