Comprehensive Dental Care
Whereas a dental visit used to focus on treating tooth decay, it has evolved to address dental health as it relates to total health and overall well-being. As a doctor of dental medicine, Dr. Lavigne has a wellness-centered practice that emphasizes the prevention of dental disease and the creation and maintenance of a healthy mouth and beautiful smile as part of one’s overall health.
Unlike one-tooth dentistry, comprehensive dental care looks at the interrelationship of the teeth, gums, supporting bone and jaw muscles. These structures of the oral cavity must work in harmony to allow us to speak, chew, and smile for a lifetime.
In our initial exam, we don’t simply scan the mouth for cavities and tooth problems. We look at the health of each of the structures contributing to a healthy mouth and educate our patients on ways to achieve and maintain oral health for the rest of their lives.
Dr. Lavigne puts particular emphasis on maintaing and restoring the teeth to their natural form and function. She focuses on creating and maintaining a beautiful smiles for her patients. When dentistry is done to the highest level, no one should be able to detect that you’ve had dental work completed. Whether it’s the front teeth or the last tooth in the back, Dr. Lavigne gives each patient the same attention to detail and level of care.
Whether it’s brightening the color of your smile, fixing older dental work, or addressing worn or chipped teeth, we will sit down, listen to your story, and offer you options to achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
