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 afterwards 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 3 months. Give us a call today to schedule your next appointment.

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.

A crown is used to cover a tooth when it is severely damaged, decaying, or cannot be fixed with bonded filling material.

When a tooth is lost due to gum disease, decay, or injury, a bridge is used to restore gaps left by missing teeth in your mouth and prevent unhealthy changes in your bite, looking and acting the same as natural teeth.

Teeth can be subject to decay and cracks, and when this occurs, a dental filling is needed to restore the tooth.

When it comes to decaying, damaged teeth that can not be helped by fillings, crowns, or bridges, an extraction is an option that can be performed comfortably to eliminate the pain and infection.

Our teeth whitening treatments utilize modern technology to reduce unsightly stains and leave you with an even more stunning smile, that is both whiter and brighter than before.

A denture is a removable dental appliance made to resemble your natural teeth and serves as a replacement for any missing teeth and surrounding tissue.

There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. A complete denture may be recommended when all of the teeth on either the upper and/or lower arch are missing. Where as a partial denture may be the right option when some of the natural teeth remain. A partial denture is also beneficial in that it not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting in a patient’s mouth.

As an alternative to bridges, partials or full dentures, dental implants similarly look and feel just like natural teeth. Implants are anchored into the patient’s jawbone with no preparation of the adjacent teeth. Implants can also help secure a removable denture to give a patient more comfort and confidence.

Invisalign is an effective alternative to metal braces by using custom made, invisible aligners to straighten your teeth. They have no uncomfortable wires, and because they are removable, patients can eat and drink whatever they want.

Periodontal disease is a serious condition that can be progressing without any symptoms, so early detection and treatment is very important. If left untreated, periodontal disease can destroy supporting bones in your mouth. The best way to ensure early detection is by scheduling a dental check-up and routine cleanings.

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells used to improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers are customized for a perfect fit and natural appearance, and then bonded to the surfaces of your teeth to correct any flaws.
