We know your time is valuable and we make it our priority to be on time for all appointments. We are currently at 96% on-time appointments and are working hard to take every patient back at or before their appointment time. Occasionally we run behind because of an emergency but we will always keep you informed if we think we are going to be late.
We want to express our gratitude to all our great patients and dental specialists who have brought in so many yummy treats throughout the year! We have thoroughly enjoyed all the goodies and appreciate your thoughtfulness.
The largest mammal on earth, the Blue Whale (pictured here) has no teeth! Instead, they have 270-395 plates of baleen on either side of their jaw that look similar to long thin teeth. Baleen is similar to bristles and consists of the same substance found in human fingernails and hair. Cleaning his mouth looks like A LOT of work!
Most patients want Invisalign to straighten their teeth for aesthetic reasons. However, what most people don't know is that Invisalign helps with a healthier mouth. Gums may be affected by overcrowding and cause periodontal disease symptoms. Straightening your teeth helps place the teeth in proper alignment so brushing and flossing are easier. In addition, straighter teeth help prevent decay and bad breath. Park Crossing Dentistry is an Invisalign Preferred Provider. Call us for a free consultation.
