Prevention is a crucial part of maintaining excellent oral health. We can provide the vital support your teeth need.
How often should I visit Shorewood Family Dentistry?
Patients of any age should see a dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. Why are frequent visits so important? Regular visits help us catch and treat common problems early, before they’ve had a chance to develop into something more serious and more costly.
Do you treat children too?
Absolutely. Our entire team works hard every day to make Shorewood Family Dentistry a place where patients of all ages will feel comfortable and welcome.
When should I bring in my child for their first visit?
Children can be seen as early as one year of age. We check for proper tooth eruption, cavities, and overall oral health. We then recommend a yearly check up until the age of three, at which point we determine if your child should be seen every six months.
What should my brushing and flossing routine look like?
For good oral health and well-being, we recommend brushing for two minutes, at least twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and rinsing with an antibacterial and/or fluoride mouthwash.

Can dental implants help me?
Are you missing one or more teeth? Then you might be a good candidate for restorative care with dental implants. Using a small implant post and a custom-made prosthetic, dental implants give you results that are as close to natural as possible.
