How often should I visit Dr. Ayer for checkups and cleanings?
We strongly recommend that our patients visit us every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning. Seeing us on a frequent basis like this will help us catch problems just as they’re starting so we can treat them early and prevent any serious changes to your health.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a popular orthodontic service that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to move teeth into their ideal position. Do you want a straighter smile without committing to months of wearing traditional braces? Let Dr. Ayer talk to you about the possibility of treatment with this revolutionary orthodontic solution.
Do you offer Botox or dermal fillers?
Yes, we do! If you’re looking for a way to create a younger appearance, consider treatment with one of these great options. With just a few minutes in our office, we can provide help that will last for months to come.
What are dental implants?
With this versatile restorative service, Dr. Ayer can help patients replace everything from a single missing tooth to a full upper or lower arch. What’s more, implants have a crown-and-root structure that mimics the design of a natural tooth for superior functionality and appearance.
Are dental implants right for me?
As effective as dental implants are, they aren’t right for everyone. If you’ve considering a crown, bridge, or denture, let Dr. Ayer assess your jaw and talk to you about your needs. If we need to, we can talk to you about alternative solutions.
