Dentist in Elk Grove, CA - Case Dental Group
Why Going to the Dentist Is Important
The American Dental Association recommends that you see a dentist twice per year and more often than that if you have had a major dental issue in the past, like periodontal disease. This is because the more often you visit the dentist for check-ups and cleanings, the more likely potential problems can be caught and treated early. Despite this advice, a significant number of people still avoid the dentist, which is part of the reason why adults 20-64 have an average of over three decayed or missing teeth according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
We all want to have a healthy, cavity-free smile. In order to keep everyone in your family’s smiles beautiful, you have to do a little more than just brush and floss at home. Part of maintaining a healthy smile includes seeing your Merrick, NY dentist. We can provide you with the dental care your mouth needs as it matures and changes. Having a dentist you trust that gives you the individualized treatment you need is important, and that’s what we aim to do.

Routine Dental Care
The word regular is often associated with things good for our health: regular exercise, regular meals, regular medical check-ups. In the case of achieving and keeping a healthy and vibrant smile, regularity is key as well. While dentistry has recently experienced many exciting and new ways of treating age-old oral problems, nothing will ever replace the simple and effective habits that keep and maintain superior dental health.
- Brush regularly with an ADA-approved soft bristle toothbrush. Brush at least twice a day, and after meals when able, in a circular gentle motion for at least 2 minutes.
- Floss regularly, once a day minimum. A viable substitute for ordinary floss is a water flossing device.
- Make and keep semi-annual appointments with the Case Dental Group for oral check-ups and dental cleanings.
Need we remind you that the last of these three habits, visiting our Elk Grove dentists every six months, is the most important?
The professional staff at the Case Dental Group is your resource to help make these habits stick. We’re happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. But the first step, often the hardest, is contacting our staff to make an appointment. Whether you’re just too busy, too tired, too scared, too strapped for cash or just too embarrassed, your teeth and gums can’t make that appointment – they need you to do it for them. Putting off regular dental care is a decision that can be more expensive and more time consuming and, unfortunately, much more painful when its done “later” instead of “on schedule.” The more often you see us for simple cleanings, the less often you’ll need to see us for more serious issues. So keep brushing, flossing and protecting those teeth of yours, and contact us for a dental visit. Together we can make good dental habits a regular part of your life.
Cosmetic dentistry is all about giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. Our Elk Grove dentists regularly witness the improvements to confidence and self-esteem that come with better, whiter teeth. People smile, laugh and “open wide” far more often when they stop worrying about how their teeth look, because they’re certain that their smile looks terrific.
The Case Dental Group creates these wonderful changes with the help of modern technologies that restore or cover up chipped teeth, large gaps between the teeth, missing teeth and stained teeth. If you suffer from any of these problems, fixing them can be beneficial not just to your looks, but also to your oral health. Some cosmetic repairs actually help forestall problems with the bite and strengthen teeth weakened by damage, time, or genetics.
