Our office is proud to offer a variety of dental services to both children and adult patients. Below is some basic information on some of the procedures that we offer. If you are interested in any of these procedures, you may contact our office for more information or to schedule an appointment to discuss your individual situation and needs.
While some dental visits involve repairing and restoring your mouth, it's just as important for us to prevent any future damage to your teeth. When you come for your first visit, Dr. Shifman will examine your mouth thoroughly. After looking at your teeth and gums, she studies the soft tissue in your mouth to look for lesions or other signs of oral cancer. She also inspects any existing fillings, bridgework, or other dental appliances in your mouth for wear. She will also check your jaw for TMD or TMJ (Tempomandibular Joint) disorders. If you have any problems, our team will design a complete personalized treatment plan to stop any problems you might have and help you maintain excellent dental health.
It's also very important to keep up with regular home treatment, such as brushing and flossing of your teeth. Use of a mouthrinse is also recommended. Finally, don't forget to schedule regular check-ups with Northbank Dental Center. Catching a problem while it's small is always better then waiting for it to be a real pain!
