The sunny state of Florida is a mecca for those seeking warmer winter temperatures. Do you ever wonder how to maintain quality dental care while you are living in two separate states? If you are a seasonal resident, Smile Design Dentistry can meet your dental needs while you are at your home away from home. Here, we will explore the benefits that two-residence patients can enjoy by having a dentist in both locations.
Two Dental Homes Means More Comprehensive Care
Most dental patients require routine cleanings and checkups every three to six months, depending on the unique needs of the individual. If you are living in Florida for part of the year, you will almost certainly necessitate a dental visit or two during your time here. At Smile Design Dentistry, we provide the highest level of care. We understand that you already see a dentist in your other location, and we are more than happy to care for your teeth and gums while you are escaping the cold and snow. In fact, having two dental homes can be quite beneficial! By having two dentists well-acquainted with your dental goals and oral health needs, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
Communication in the Digital Age
Advances in technology now allow us to communicate at the touch of a button. The same is true for dentistry, as well. Whether we need to obtain or share dental records, charting, x-rays, scans, or impressions, we can do so in a matter of moments. Our entire staff is accustomed to communicating with other dental professionals across the country on a regular basis. In fact, any time we take x-rays or obtain new information, we will send your records to your home dentist. Therefore, you will never have to worry that something will go unchecked or unnoticed. We will work alongside your other general dentist in order to deliver unparalleled comprehensive care.
Why is a Seasonal Dentist Important?
Have you chipped a tooth? Perhaps you have lost an old filling. Maybe you are experiencing tooth sensitivity. While it may be tempting to wait out a problem, leaving it untreated can cause a host of other issues. Addressing these things early on can help you avoid more extensive treatments in the future. For example, a chipped tooth can often be easily repaired with a simple ten-minute treatment. However, if the problem is not addressed, it can worsen over time. If a superficial crack begins to run deeper into the tooth structure, you may require more extensive restorative work to correct the problem.
Whether you are experiencing a dental emergency, or you simply need a routine dental cleaning, we can help. Here are just a few of the treatments we provide at Smile Design Dentistry:
- Preventative care: routine dental examinations, cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants
- Restorative dentistry: fillings, bridges, crowns, dental implants
- Cosmetic dentistry: porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, dental bonding
