At Ephrata Family Dentistry, your smile is our top priority. Dr. Moriarty, along with his team, has set a goal to keep your smile healthy for a lifetime! This is done by seeing you every six months for regular check-ups. Regular visits include a thorough teeth cleaning, detailed exam and x-rays. These check-ups help catch early signs of tooth decay and gum disease and treat them right away, saving you from more extensive treatment later on. You will also receive an oral cancer screening. When caught early, oral cancer if often not only treatable but curable.
If any areas of concern are found in your smile, treatment is available through our office. For instance, if a cavity is found it can be repaired with a tooth-colored filling. The spread of decay can be stopped by treating a cavity right away and sealing the tooth with a filling. If you need to replace any missing teeth, your dentist can let you know the best recommended treatment for your smile. Treatment options for missing teeth include implants, bridges, crowns and dentures.
Whatever treatment is recommended for your smile will be included in a customized treatment plan that your dentist puts together. This treatment plan will include general and cosmetic procedures to protect and improve the look of your smile. Any treatment that you would like to pursue can be scheduled following your regular visit. If you would like to address the appearance of your smile, we offer cosmetic dentistry that can give you options for fixing crooked, cracked, discolored or misshapen teeth. From teeth whitening to dentures, there are a variety of options for improving your smile! Your dentist will include all the recommended options in your treatment plan.
In addition to regular office visits, oral hygiene is key to a healthy smile! Daily brushing and flossing are vital for maintaining the health of your teeth. You can also protect your teeth by avoiding sugary foods and drinks until you are able to brush your teeth right away. Taking care of your teeth at home will help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
