Meet Your Springfield, MO Dental Care Expert
Hey there, folks in Springfield! I have some terrific tips to help you keep your smiles looking fantastic and healthy. I'm Dr. Randi Green, a dentist in Springfield, MO. Taking care of your teeth is super important and doesn't have to be complicated.
So, here's the deal: You want a great smile. Well, the first thing you need to do is brush your teeth every day. And here's a secret weapon – use an electric toothbrush. It's like having a super-powered brush to clean your teeth. Also, don't forget to floss regularly to get rid of stuff that gets stuck between your teeth. Oh, and there's something called a water flosser – it's pretty cool too.
Here's the big news: You should see me or another dentist at least every six months. Why? Because it's all about stopping problems before they get big and scary. Preventing issues and being proactive with your care is the name of the game.
Think about it like this: the best way to deal with tooth troubles is not to have them in the first place. But sometimes, things sneak up on us, like when you don't notice something until it's a big deal. That's why seeing me regularly is smart – I can catch those sneaky issues early and help you with long-lasting solutions.
When you come to visit, it's nothing to be afraid of. My team and I will make you feel comfy and explain everything. I'll check your teeth for yucky stuff like plaque and tartar and look for signs of gum disease, too. We'll even check your jaw and make sure everything's working right. I'll also check for things like oral cancer – it's like a superhero check for your mouth.
Now, guess what? X-rays are like super glasses for me. They help me see beneath the surface of your teeth and bones. It's cool because I can check your mouth, head, neck, and airways!
After I check everything, my excellent dental hygienists will clean your teeth and gums well. If you need a little extra help, we've got some practical treatments.
And guess what? Your hygienist is like your coach, teaching you how to keep your teeth in tip-top shape at home.
At my dental practice, we're like family. I care about you, your family, and your smile. We want you to have a healthy mouth and a healthy body, too. So, if you're looking for a dentist who cares and knows their stuff, come on over. We're here for you and love to see you smile!
Take care, Dr. Randi Green
