When was the last time you went to your dentist? If the answer is over a year ago, it's time to make an appointment at the family dentistry office of Dr. Melinda Kuhn.

Kuhn Family Dentistry in Reno, NV, provides all your dental care needs. Keeping up with your visits is key to a healthy, beautiful smile for decades to come. From cleanings to restorations to exams, regular appointments complement and enhance your daily oral hygiene routine.

What does a family dentist do?

At our family dentistry office in Reno, NV, we encourage coming in every six months for an examination and professional cleaning. While brushing and flossing are essential, plaque and tartar can still develop and it takes more than a toothbrush to remove them. We have special tools to remove stubborn buildup before it spreads or creates decay or cavities. With small mirrors, we can closely examine the health of each of your teeth and provide a detailed cleaning that reaches every surface. A professional cleaning buffs away stains, revealing white, shiny teeth, and we can apply a fluoride treatment to help prevent cavities.

Your appointment is also the time for us to identify any dental issues, such as cavities, chips, cracks, decay or discoloration, and provide the necessary treatments. By keeping up with your visits, problems will be caught in a timely manner, before they worsen. Visits to your family dentistry office may include x-rays, which help us identify any problems not visible to the naked eye.

A family dentist can also work with you on any cosmetic or restorative dentistry needs, such as tooth replacement options, straightening devices, whitening treatments, or crowns.

Keeping up with your dental appointments will help you save time and money in the long run, and prevent you from the potential pain of dental problems going untreated.
