When was the last time you paid your Eastpointe, MI, family dentist, Dr. Peter Jost, a visit? If you're like many people, chances are it was more than six months ago. We hear the reasons why people neglect regular dental visits all the time: lack of money or quality dental insurance, busy schedules, and fear. However, your twice-yearly checkups are so important for your dental health and your overall health as well.

You may brush your teeth twice a day and even floss, and your teeth may feel fine, but regular dental checkups with your Eastpointe, MI, family dentist aren’t about addressing problems and reacting — they are about cavity prevention. No matter how much you brush and floss, there is still a chance that food or other debris can get lodged between your teeth, and there is also a chance that food and beverages can wear down your tooth enamel in between visits, making your teeth vulnerable to decay.

In addition to thorough teeth cleaning and polishing, these regular visits help us detect and prevent the onset of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. During your visit, we’ll check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. We’ll also check old fillings and restorations, as these can wear away over time from constant chewing, grinding, or clenching.

It's important to know that the majority of dental problems do not become visible or painful until they are highly advanced. And, unfortunately, serious oral issues are painful and expensive to treat. A deep cleaning twice a year by our team is the best way to hit all the spots you may have missed with brushing and flossing and prevent any problems that may have gone unseen.

Make sure your teeth get the professional attention they deserve! If you’re overdue for your next cleaning, please give your Eastpointe, MI, family dentist, Dr. Jost, a call at (586) 771-1460 to schedule an appointment.

Whether you want to whiten your smile, reduce your cavity risk or repair damage to your teeth, a visit to the family dentist can help you family dentistryimprove your smile. Eastpointe, MI, dentist Dr. Peter Jost explains how family dentistry can help you.

Quality care for the entire family

Family dentists don't just treat one age group or specialize in a particular type of dental problem. They care for patients of all ages and are trained to diagnose and treat dental issues that may affect their patients at any point in their lives. Convenience is one of the most attractive benefits of family dentistry. In fact, you can schedule a group checkup for your entire family, rather than individual appointments spread throughout the year.

The services you need

Family dentists offer all of the services you need to look your best and maintain good oral health, including:

  • Checkups and Cleanings: During your regular visits to our Eastpointe office, you'll receive a complete examination and a cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. If cavities or other issues are detected during your visit, we'll recommend an appropriate treatment.
  • Sealants: Sealants prevent cavities in your child's pre-molars and molars. They're applied soon after these permanent teeth erupt and last as long as 10 years.
  • Gum Disease Treatment: Gum disease treatment can destroy your gum tissue and even lead to the loss of teeth. Family dentists offer deep cleanings and other treatments that will help restore the health of your gums.
  • Fillings: Fillings restore areas of teeth damaged by tooth decay.
  • Root Canal Therapy: Tooth-saving root canal therapy eliminates infections and inflammation in your tooth pulp by removing the pulp and replacing it with a flexible filling.
  • Crowns: Hollow crowns slip over teeth are used to support fragile teeth, restore damage, change the shape or length of teeth, and also conceal flaws.
  • Veneers: Veneers also hide imperfections and change the shape and length of teeth, but these thin porcelain shells are only attached to the fronts of teeth.
  • Teeth Whitening: If you're embarrassed by your dull, stained smile, teeth whitening can help. A quick one-hour treatment removes stains caused by aging, smoking, and foods and beverages, leaving your smile whiter and brighter.
  • Tooth Restoration: If you've lost one or more teeth, you may want to consider filling the gaps in your smile with bridges, dentures, dental implants or implant-supported dentures.

Family dentistry can help you keep your smile strong and healthy. If you're concerned about a toothache or other dental issue, schedule an appointment with Dr. Peter Jost in Eastpointe, MI, by calling (586) 771-1460 to schedule an appointment.
