The Importance of Visiting The Dentist

Visiting the dentist is important for the appearance and longevity of your smile, as well as the health of your mouth. Even if you take good care of your teeth, there are areas of your mouth that can be difficult to clean consistently. Those areas can become prone to cavities or bacterial infection.

When you visit us every six months for your routine cleaning and exam, we’ll thoroughly clean every area of your mouth and screen for serious issues like oral cancer and periodontal disease. When the focus is on prevention, you’re less likely to undergo invasive dental procedures if you keep up with your regular dental appointments.

At Ridgeview Family Dental, we always strive to provide the highest quality and most advanced dental technology to our patients. This way, if your oral health does decline, we’re able to bring back your smile efficiently and more comfortably than ever.


Frequently Asked Questions

Your dentist should be an advisor and an advocate for your dental health, which is why asking questions before choosing a dentist is so important. That way, you can get to know the dental team and the environment in order to decide whether they’re a good fit for you.

Here are some questions you’ll want to ask a potential dentist:

  • Is gum disease or gingivitis something I should be worried about?
  • Am I at risk for future dental issues?
  • What are your tips for better oral hygiene at home?
  • Do you offer any payment plans?
  • Why are my teeth so sensitive?
  • Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening treatments?
  • What is causing the pain in my teeth?

Our dentists Dr. Young and  Dr. Kingsolver can recommend dental products, give advice on issues before they become problematic, and provide information on ways to improve your dental hygiene based on your specific needs. We’re here to help you and want to make sure you’re comfortable at our office.

Dental anxiety is a common condition where patients typically avoid dental care due to previous bad experiences, general stigmas about dental visits, or fear of needles and dental tools. Dental anxiety can prevent some patients from getting the dental care they need, which is why Ridgeview Family Dental offers dental sedation for patients who feel anxious about their essential oral health care.

The easiest way to get your kids to brush their teeth is to make it fun. Children tend to mimic their parents’ behaviors, for better or worse so if you’re excited about brushing, they will be, too. Setting a good example by participating in a regular oral hygiene routine by brushing twice a day and flossing every day can help set them up for long-term success with their dental hygiene. 

Younger children may need a little guidance when flossing until their motor skills are developed enough to do it on their own. If you’re still having trouble motivating them to participate in oral hygiene routines, let our dentist know at your appointment, and they can offer some helpful advice.

Fluoride is a mineral that fights bacteria and plaque, helping to prevent cavities. While our bodies naturally make fluoride, it’s also present in some tap water, certain kinds of toothpaste, and some mouthwashes.

Since fluoride aids in protecting against cavities, we recommend using dental products that contain fluoride as part of your routine oral care. We also offer professional fluoride treatments that are highly concentrated and only take a few minutes to apply.

Quality Care For The Entire Family

Having a consistent oral hygiene routine is an act of self-care and serves as a way to ensure the longevity of your smile. The experts at Ridgeview Family Dental serve as your support team so that your smile remains healthy, bright, and functional no matter the severity of your case.
