You may have seen the commercials for a certain insurance company that talks about knowing a thing or two because they’ve seen a thing or two.
The same can be said for Dr. Andrew Dine. Dr. Dine has been in practice for some 40 years, and you can bet that he’s seen more than “a thing or two” in that time.
Dr. Dine has served the dental needs of the adults , teens, and children of Butler and Hamilton counties for four decades. It’s fair to say that he’s seen – and treated – almost everything. When you choose our modern dental practice for your family’s dental needs, you’re assured of receiving the very best dental care in a warm and caring atmosphere.
People of all ages benefit from preventive care to help avoid problems with their teeth. Barring accidents, adults should keep their permanent teeth for life. Since their adult lives can easily stretch for six or seven decades, or even longer, preventing dental problems just makes sense. And prevention is far less expensive than treatment.
Since children keep their primary, or “baby,” teeth for a relatively short time, compared to adults’ permanent teeth, there’s no reason why children should develop cavities or gum disease. Proper and regular brushing and flossing, minimizing sugary drinks and foods, and regular examinations and cleanings can get children through childhood cavity-free. And, establishing good dental health habits early in life can help prevent problems as children get older.
Teens sometimes present a special challenge for parents and dentists alike. Teens enjoy a lot more freedom to choose their diet than children. Typically, teens have minimal supervision in the brushing and flossing department, which can lead to plaque buildup and the beginning of tooth decay.
Also, there are some people who genetically vulnerable to plaque formation. For those people, regular checkups and cleanings are even more important to avoid gum disease and tooth decay.
Ours is a modern dental practice, and if your cleaning reveals the presence of plaque or tartar, have no fear! The days of scaling, or scraping plaque and tartar from your teeth, are gone. Ultrasonics are the state of the art today.
Ultrasonics uses water and vibrations to clear away plaque and tartar, and the bacteria they contain, from your teeth. It’s more thorough than the traditional method of removal and produces less wear on the teeth. Once the ultrasonics treatment is complete, tooth polishing will remove any final traces of plaque. Most patients find ultrasonics more comfortable than hand-scaling.
No matter the age, we offer a number of preventive services including professional cleanings, digital X-rays, sealants, fluoride varnishes, bite analyses and much more.
We encourage all family members to have regular checkups and professional cleanings at our practice. Call 513-823-2575 to schedule an appointment.
Special measures for special people.
Many teens and adults have some form of dental anxiety or dental fear which can lead them to put off seeing the dentist. With his extensive experience, Dr. Dine understands and appreciates the reasons for those concerns. We offer different levels of dental sedation to ensure that everyone is calm and comfortable as possible during any procedure.
There’s no reason why your child should be afraid of the dentist, but a lot of that depends on how the first appointment goes. Your child’s first dental visit, usually around age 4, shouldn’t be and doesn’t have to be traumatic. We go out of our way to make children’s appointments interesting and fun. That first appointment will both ensure that your child’s teeth are problem-free and help them begin a lifelong habit of taking good care of their teeth.
To schedule your child’s appointment, call our office at 513-823-2575.
