``I wish I could give more than 5 stars. The experience was above and beyond what I could have ever hoped for. Dr. Johnson and Crystal made me feel so comfortable my entire procedure. I cannot sing enough praises to this dental family! I have never seen a group of individuals work so efficiently and side by side before. There is not a shred of ostentatious behavior in this workplace to force you into thinking they are great. The general concern and treatment shown to this patient was all the proof I needed.``
``It's been a couple of years since I have been to the dentist and I didn't know what to expect but everything went great! Very relaxing environment and friendly staff! Dean was very thorough and was always asking if everything was alright and how I was feeling. I was shocked at how pleasant my cleaning went and am actually looking foreward to my next one.``
``You know what it's like when you find something so great, you want to tell everyone about it? That's how I feel about Dean. It had been 6 years since my last dental visit. Bad experiences in the past had kept me dreading the dentist. Now that's all changed. Dean is friendly, caring, professional and most importantly great at his job. He immediately made me feel at ease and did everything in his power to make the entire procedure a positive experience. Thank you Dean!``
``I've had a lot of work done on my teeth over the years, working with a ton of different dentists and hygienist's. By far the staff at Talega Coast Dentistry provided the best results for the work that was required. It all started with a cleaning & whitening that Dean Rollolazo provided me (which Dean absolutely knocked out of the park, seems to have a sixth sense for teeth whitening). While working on me, Dean noticed that my composite filling on my front tooth was severely stained and recommended that I sit down for a consult with Dr. Johnson, to weigh different options and cost effective solutions. The support staff was able to schedule a time for me very quickly, knowing that my freshly whitened teeth would make my stained composite stick out even more than it already did. The consult/appointment couldn't have gone any better. Dr. Johnson, not only, laid out the most effective short term and long term solutions; he was also able to knock the procedure out for me that same day. His experience and precision were evident throughout the entire procedure. Perfectionist is an understatement when it comes to Dr. Johnsons work. At no point did it feel like he was rushing (which is something that all too familiar with when I am getting dental work done), and it truly felt like he was passionate about making sure that all of my expectations were met. There is no doubt in my mind that I will be coming back to see the Talega team for all of my future dental work.``
Crisis treatment, visiting a dentist only when there is a problem, is never a good practice. Patients may feel they are saving money. As result, neglected gums and teeth can end up costing a lot more down the line. Dental problems often do not show any symptoms until they have reached an advanced stage of disease.
Brushing is great and offers numerous benefits. Flossing is equally important. Flossing helps reduce the amount of bacteria in a person’s mouth. Flossing helps rid the mouth of bacteria that’s lodged between the teeth. Without flossing, plaque remains between the teeth, which can harden into tartar. Only your dentist can remove hardened tartar.
With proper tooth care, you can certainly minimize the number of cavities that you or your family might get. Make it a habit to spend two to three minutes brushing your teeth after every meal. Floss at least once a day. Always clean your teeth after eating sweet items.
While oral piercing is widely accepted, there are dangers involved. Piercing can cause swelling, pain, drooling, infection, scarring, tooth loss, bleeding, and an increased flow of saliva. None of these conditions are pleasant. Before piercing, consult with your dentist. The same advice applies if you already have piercings and you are experiencing discomfort or pain.
The cause of morning breath is a reduction of saliva. Bacteria forms on the teeth and in crevices on the tongue’s taste buds. This bacterial breaks down food particles, which in turn produce sulfur compounds. Sulfur compounds are the elements that give breath its bad odor. Increased saliva can help dissolve the foul-smelling sulfur compounds. If long-term bad breath persists, schedule an appointment with your dentist.
That depends. Toothpastes that claim to whiten all vary in their actual ability to whiten teeth. You have to be careful in using toothpastes that can effectively remove stains. They may also destroy your teeth’s enamel in the process. Some of these toothpastes may have contain harsh abrasives, which can contribute to increases too sensitivity. Consult with your dentist before using teeth whiteners.
