How can we help you?
When it comes to your dental care, you have a right to ask questions. At Bonita Grande Dental, we believe that the only silly question is the one that goes unasked. You're not expected to be an expert in your dental care – that's our job! But there are often decisions to be made about certain treatments where you need to feel like you can turn to a trusted source who has your best interest at heart.
Patient education plays a huge part in the services we provide, and we take the time to thoroughly answer your questions while you're in our office. But there's always one more question that comes to you, so we've listed a few that we tend to hear more often. If yours isn't listed here, please don't hesitate to contact us, and a helpful member of our team will do everything possible to help you find the answer you need.
Oral Cancer Screening
Without knowing you and understanding your dental history, it’s really difficult to say how often you should schedule checkups. This is a decision that needs to be made between you, Dr. Gostigian, and our hygienist. For many patients, however, twice a year is sufficient.
Dr. Gostigian and our team are trained to detect and treat many problems before you’re even aware of them. With semi-annual dental visits, we can catch decay and gum disease in their earliest stages.
Prevention is The Priority
Of course, the goal is to prevent disease, decay, and tooth loss from occurring. It’s obviously preferable to stay current with your dental treatment and avoid having to worry about unexpected problems sneaking up on you. We’re here to help you, but you need to do your part by making and keeping your appointments. It all comes back to teamwork!
During each checkup, we’ll look for signs of decay and disease that may have developed since your last visit. If necessary, we’ll take digital x-rays to make sure we have the most current information on hand. Once we’ve gathered all the necessary information, we can make recommendations about any treatment we think may be necessary.
