Today is the day you’ve had marked on your calendar and have been looking forward to for weeks. You’re taking time off work to take your son to the dentist, but you secretly see it as a mini-retreat for yourself. While your son is receiving excellent dental care from Dr. Lamberton and his staff, you’ll be taking advantage of the spa-like comforts of the office.
Your oral health is about much more than straight or sparkling teeth. Our office has now begun incorporating orofacial myofunctional therapy and training into our services. In simpler terms, we can act as a personal exercise trainer for your face, tongue, lips and breathing muscles, treating issues such as temporomandibular joint disease (TMJ), obstructive sleep apnea, incorrect swallowing, tongue postures and more with non-invasive techniques.
More and more, our patients are adding Waterpik electric flossers to their dental health routines. We see the good results in their checkups. Now, with new technology, Waterpiks have become an even more valuable tool to benefit your oral health.
Waterpiks remove plaque from the teeth using a stream of water along with some massaging action that benefits the gums. The high-pressure stream can clean deeper into the gum line than string flossing can, and it is a recommended flossing method for braces, bridges, and veneers. Some people floss only with Waterpiks, but most dentists advise using both.
