Two minutes in the chair at Water’s Edge Dentistry and you know your teeth are in good hands. Whether it’s for whitening, straightening, cleaning or correcting, Dr. Nicole Dahlkemper and her staff will not only fix you up, but help you understand that oral care involves more than just toothpaste and rinsing.
“Daily brushing is just one aspect of oral care,” said Dr. Dahlkemper, in practice since 2010. “And while brushing and flossing every day is super important, other factors affect our teeth that we don’t often think about.”
For example, a visit to Dahlkemper will entail a full evaluation of your bite, palate, soft tissue, jaw and airway. “Airway dentistry is a new and growing field focused on the structure of the mouth and how it impacts your breathing,” she said. “And we use oral appliance and laser therapy to help you get more oxygen and a better night’s sleep.”
Of course, if you need another service like Invisalign, 3D x-ray imaging or just a reminder to brush twice a day and stay away from carbonated beverages and energy drinks, Dr. Dahlkemper is there for those needs, as well.
“Patients want to be educated about the conditions of their mouths,” she added. “And we help them understand risk factors and how to be more preventive in caring for their teeth.”
