Autumn Leaves and Botox Please

November 21, 2023

Botox can also be given as preventative treatment. Botox is more effective for dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that only show during movement) than static wrinkles. Static wrinkles can still be Read More →

With this holiday season in full swing, many of us begin looking in the mirror and paying closer attention to our teeth before our family gatherings. During the hustle and bustle of the year, we tend to put our needs last. This may include putting off a tooth that has been bothersome on and off, noticing rough edges on teeth that never had rough spots before and noticing our teeth are looking a bit faded. When is it time to see the dentist and what can you do? For most people, we recommend coming in for a routine checkup with Read More →

What is SDF? Our office has started using a material called silver diamine fluoride (SDF) to help treat tooth decay.

SDF can be effective in treating dental cavities with a variety of patients, but in particular, pediatric patients. What can it be used for? Silver diamine fluoride is not for every situation, as it does not permanently cure the area of decay. In order for it Read More →

As dental professionals, we are asked daily what we trust and use as our dental products. The store shelves are stocked with an abundant number of pastes, floss and brushes, but which ones are the best? Dr. Peters prefers to use Arm & Hammer Peroxicare because of its natural whitening properties. This paste also tastes good (per Dr. Peters!) and has a low abrasiveness rating, so it is gentle on your teeth. He uses the reach access flosser- easy to use for hard-to-reach molars and an electric Sonicare toothbrush. Dr. Mettler prefers to use any toothpaste that has fluoride and Read More →
