Cleanings

Regular dental cleanings are more than a luxury, they are a necessity to maintain  healthy teeth and supporting oral structures.  A dirty mouth not only causes cavities, but also causes halitosis (bad breath), gingivitis (gum disease), and periodontitis (bone disease).  If the bone and gums supporting your teeth are diseased, you can lose all your teeth and be in dentures without ever having a cavity.

Exams & X-rays

Regular dental exams and xrays are very important.  Many dental problems are easy to fix if caught early.  But if you wait until their is tooth pain, often the tooth will require more invasive and costly treatment such as crowns, root canals, or extractions.  Seeing the dentist is very different from seeing the family doctor.  Generally we don’t go to the doctor unless we feel sick.  However most small cavities are asymptomatic, which means they don’t give the patient symptoms such as pain.  Waiting until pain before seeing the dentist can end up costing you in the long run both financially and in overall dental health.  As Benjamin Franklin said, “An Ounce of Prevention is worth a Pound of Cure.”

Preventative Treatment

Brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits are some of the best things you can do for your smile.  But what if that is not enough?  There is more that you can do to maintain health and prevent dental problems.  To understand what else you can do, you need to understand what causes cavities and gum disease in the first place.  With that knowledge you will see we can explore many factors which can help you manage your dental health… such as diet, antimicrobial rinses, fluoride treatments, sealants, and much more.
