It is unfortunate that many people associate dental care with pain when, in fact, just the opposite is probably more accurate. Maintaining proper dental care can lead to far fewer dental pains along the way. Personal hygiene should include brushing and flossing at home on a daily basis and combined with regularly-scheduled visits to your dental provider. These visits allow the hygienist to perform deep cleaning to areas that might not be as easy to maintain with routine care. This is an important step in the prevention of gum disease, as well as, tooth decay – both of which can become very painful if not addressed.
During a routine dental visit, the dentist will perform a visual exam, along with x-rays, in order to detect any areas of decay, cracks, wear, or signs of infection before they progress. By being proactive in this way and following the advice of your dentist, you may avoid painful developments. Dr. Clint Bruyere provides comprehensive preventative care for patients in and around the Longview area. When diagnosis is made and care is provided at the earliest stage of a problem, Dr. Clint and his staff are able to remedy these with pain-free procedures; restoring good health and proper function.
Our dental practice implements a variety of measures to ensure comfort and relaxation for our patients. Those who deal with anxiety in dental settings are encouraged to discuss this with our caring professionals ahead of any procedure to ensure we are able to agree upon the measures needed to deliver the most ideal level of comfort. Patients should be aware that delay of needed dental care is not the answer. This decision is known to result in more complex and painful problems which then require emergency dental intervention. Our goal is to assist patients in never reaching that point by recognizing and addressing any issues as soon as possible.
For compassionate and comprehensive care, we invite you to schedule appointments for each member of your family for routine cleanings and exams. Any concerns can be discussed between the patient and the doctor at this time. If discomfort should arise between routine visits, we encourage a prompt call to our office for an appointment, so that we may resolve the issue, and restore health and comfort. Call the office of Dr. Clint Bruyere today, and experience for yourself the exceptional care that keeps our patients returning.
