The space between your teeth is a triangle. The best way to clean a triangular space is with a triangular tool. This is why you use a Stim-U-Dent.®

Stim-U-Dents® also clean the concave areas between the teeth that floss misses. Do not force into tight spaces between the teeth.

Once the toothpaste is on all of the teeth, moisten a Stim-U-Dent® and insert the pointed end between each tooth with the flat side next to the gum. Use a gentle but firm in/out motion, contacting the sides of each tooth and stimulating the gum tissue between the teeth.

 

 

Our Mission

We are a group of people working together in dentistry to provide comprehensive, quality dental care in a concerned, loving, caring and professional manner. Through education and understanding, we strive to aid our patients in achieving good health and encourage their participation in the decisions regarding their treatment.

 

Our Philosophy

We strive to improve the quality of life for our clients by creating optimal oral health through patient-centered care, education and prevention.

It is our intention to respect the health, function and aesthetics of oral tissue by preventing disease from occurring or intercepting its progress through minimally invasive dentistry.

Preventive dentistry is always better than restorative dentistry. For this reason, we offer personalized, individual dental health education. However, when restorative dentistry is indicated we strive to provide our clients with the advances of modern dentistry which are appropriate to each person.
