Your smile is the first thing people notice about you. In addition to showing your personality and emotions, your smile influences your overall health and wellness. Studies have shown that oral health and medical conditions such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and pregnancy complications share a connection in the form of gum disease. Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson can help prevent common oral health problems so you can enjoy a strong, healthy smile that functions comfortably and looks sensational.
To provide the highest level of care for our patients, we use digital X-rays to diagnose and design treatment plans. In addition, Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson can administer nitrous oxide (also known as laughing gas) upon request to ease anxiety. Every year, many patients put off or completely avoid routine dental exams because of anxiety; however, with nitrous oxide, even the most basic procedure can be both comfortable and relaxing.
On top of our high-quality technology and effective dental care, Moorhead Dental Associates in Moorhead offers personalized patient education. Knowing how to effectively care for your teeth is an important part of enjoying good oral health. Our team will help you establish an oral health routine of brushing and flossing that will help you preserve your smile for years to come.
