How often should I go to the dentist?

To truly utilize general dental treatments, visiting the dentist should become part of your yearly routine. We suggest coming to see Dr. Brian Homann at least once every six months. This will allow us to clean your teeth thoroughly and examine your smile for decay. Early diagnosis is the key to providing effective dental care. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may be in need of immediate treatment:

  • Tooth pain or a persistent toothache
  • Loose teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Bleeding, tender gums
  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Cysts or lumps in the mouth

We encourage you to contact us today if you are due for a visit to the dentist or if you feel you may have decayed or damaged teeth. We are happy to schedule your appointment. We look forward to starting you on the road to a healthier smile!
