Prevent Problems From Occurring With General Dental Care
A healthy mouth starts with daily brushing and flossing. But bacteria gets into so many nooks and crannies, it can be difficult to remove it all at home. Bacteria forms plaque, a sticky film that over time turns into a harder substance called tartar. If tartar isn’t removed with a professional cleaning, it gives bacteria a chance to:
- Eat through your tooth enamel, causing cavities and potentially an infection
- Get under your gums, causing gum disease
Fortunately, we offer treatments to:
- Prevent Cavities – You can strengthen tooth enamel with regular applications of fluoride. Stronger enamel is more resistant to decay. Our dentists can also apply dental sealants to help prevent bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves on top of your teeth.
- Stop Gum Disease From Progressing – Gum disease is so common that half of all American adults will have it. Fortunately, in its early stages, it can be treated with scaling and root planing, a procedure that removes bacteria from above and below the gumline.
