Dental Cleanings & Exams
It is highly recommended that all dental patients see a dentist for a cleaning and exam every 6 months. During the cleaning, our team will remove plaque and calculus from your teeth, leaving behind a bright and polished smile.
X-rays are an effective preventive and diagnostic tool that provides our team with important information not visible during a visual dental exam. Our team will utilize digital radiographs to safely and accurately detect any potential problems and then create a treatment plan to resolve them.
Root Canal Treatment
A root canal becomes necessary when the soft inner part of a tooth is injured or becomes inflamed or infected. This section of the tooth is made up of nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels that help the tooth grow. The canals can be painlessly cleaned and sealed so that the tooth can be preserved for function and esthetics.
TIPS FOR CAVITY PREVENTION
1. Make sure your teeth are REALLY clean!
We recommend using a mechanical toothbrush to help you remove all the plaque from your teeth. You should be brushing twice a day and flossing once a day.
2. Use Fluoride
Whether it’s your toothpaste or your mouthwash, make sure it contains fluoride.
3. Make Good Nutritional Choices
It helps prevent cavities when you choose food and drinks with less acid and sugar. If you do eat acidic, sugary, or sticky foods, having a glass of water afterward will help neutralize the harmful effects.
4. Treat Your Dry Mouth
If you typically have reduced saliva due to medications, or any other reasons, we recommend you drink a lot of water to keep your mouth producing a healthy amount of saliva. This will help reduce cavity-causing bacteria found in your mouth.
5. Take Oral Probiotics
Oral probiotics can be taken to create and maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in our mouths.
6. Frequent Dental Visits
If you are at a higher risk for cavities and dental decay, it’s recommended that you see a dentist every three months. Give us a call today to schedule your next appointment.
