Adult Dental Concerns
In adulthood, your teeth should remain healthy if you continue to brush, floss, receive regular cleanings, and maintain a healthy diet. If you are in the Lansing area and are concerned about your oral health or notice pain/discomfort in your gums and teeth, you should contact us today to schedule an examination. Dr. DiStefano offers many restorative and preventative dentistry procedures that can be done to return your teeth to health. You can read more about these procedures by following the left-hand navigation.
For adults who have healthy teeth and would like to improve their smile, there are also many cosmetic options available such as tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, Dental Crowns and Bridges, and adult orthodontics (braces).
In addition to maintaining good nutrition and oral hygiene, adults should be aware that many diseases and prescription medicines can have an affect on their oral health. For instance, if you have heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, HIV or cancer, you may need to follow specialized oral hygiene routines to avoid gum disease and take preventative antibiotics before dentist appointments.
