Some smile problems are a bit more complicated to decode. To make it easy, come in for twice-annual visits and we can keep you updated on everything happening with your smile. For now, some examples…

Explore common “too far gone” moments with us and how we can help you!
During your dental checkups with us, our Del Mar, CA team always hopes that you will remember you are invited to bring up whatever it is you have on your mind about your smile or your oral health. However, we are quite aware that patients frequently talk about some topics but leave other pressing matters unsaid. So, we ask: What is is that you aren’t saying during checkups? To help you get a bit more comfortable being completely vocal about your grin, we’d like to start off by illuminating some areas that might cause you hesitation and with which we are more than happy to help.
You might think that it’s somewhat odd the way we do our best to compel you to come in for a dental filling the second we identify tooth decay in your smile. You may find it extra strange when we say that you only have a small cavity but that we suggest you come in ASAP. What’s the rush, you ask yourself? Why the urgency? Well, the truth is, our Del Mar, CA team does our best to motivate you to take care of problems the second they begin to develop because we want to help you avoid unnecessary damage, which brings us to the following question: Can a cavity cause tooth loss? Let’s explore the possibility.
What is it that you’re dealing with at the moment in terms of your smile care that you know you should address? When you think about your smile and the goals you would like to reach by the time autumn rolls around, what types of worries, hopes, and dreams fill your head?

When you have our Del Mar, CA team telling you to start thinking about back-to-school time just as summer is getting going and your kids are done with school for the season, you may wonder if there’s been some mistake. However, we reassure you: There hasn’t been! As a matter of fact, though this may seem like a counterintuitive way to practice your dental care and to run your life in general, the opposite is true when it comes to smile protection! Consider some things you should take care of as soon as you possibly can, so you’re completely ready and relaxed when summer winds down and it’s time for school once again!
Have you ever thought about that extremely brief moment that occurs between the time that you pick up the food you’re about to enjoy and the moment you actually bite into it? If not, then our Del Mar, CA team wants you to recognize that this just might be something you should become just a little bit more aware of! Will it always be necessary? Nope. However, can it serve you very well in terms of keeping your smile health as safe as can be? The answer is a big yes! Find out more, as you think about instances in which you may need to hesitate and think before digging in.
Of course, you’re not going to stop, think, then act every single time you make any decision throughout your entire day. If you were to do that, you’d probably never get anything done! Fortunately, though, you may apply this mode of thinking to your oral health in such a way that you rely on it when necessary, to help you avoid accidental problems and injury. While you are absolutely free to adopt this approach to extra smile protection for other areas of smile care, as well, our Del Mar, CA team offers up particular moments in which we strongly advise it!
