You might have a lot on your family calendar this summer. Maybe you’re planning to take a vacation, spend a day hiking in the San Francisco Peaks(the forest is open!) and attend your cousin’s wedding. And, of course, you’ll have to prepare to send the kids back to school. But in all the delightful, sunny chaos of a beautiful Flagstaff summer, you shouldn’t forget to see your dentist for a routine cleaning and checkup.

Teeth whitening is one of the most commonly asked about cosmetic dentistry services available. From the ads on television to the wide array of whitening gels, pastes, and rinses available in your local pharmacy, teeth whitening products seem to be everywhere. Before seeking professional teeth whitening treatment, most patients try at least one over the counter whitening product. Unfortunately, these products are not usually able to deliver on the smile brightening results they promise. When working with a cosmetic dentistry professional, the results of teeth whitening are much more predictable. Laser teeth whitening is one form of treatment that patients aren’t as familiar with. This quick, comfortable treatment option allows patients to achieve their desired teeth whitening results entirely under the careful watch of a skilled dental professional.

You have a hidden danger lurking in your mouth that can cause serious oral and general health complications. No, it is not tooth decay. Instead, it is bacteria found in tartar accumulations, which can lead to gum disease. Although it is easily preventable with the right oral hygiene habits and regular appointments with your dentist in Flagstaff, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 50% of adults have it. When left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and health issues, like cardiovascular disease; however, new research shows an even greater danger—oral cancer.
