Take Control of Your Oral Health With Proactive Treatment

If you’re like most people, you try to brush and floss routinely. Even so, you may have days when you aren’t as consistent about your dental hygiene, or you may not clean some parts of your mouth as well as others.

By focusing on prevention, you are less likely to need fillings, crowns, root canals, and gum disease treatments. You’re also more likely to prevent overall health problems. Caring for your teeth and gums can help prevent conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and preterm delivery of babies.

More than half of all kids will have a cavity by their 11th birthday, and more than 90 percent of Americans will have at least one cavity during their lives. To help you and your family stay cavity-free, get regular cleanings and exams and consider dental sealants and fluoride treatments:

  • Regular professional dental cleanings remove disease-causing plaque and tartar buildup. With regular checkups, we are also more likely to find problems early when they are easier (and less expensive) to treat.
  • Sealants are like a set of armor for your smile. They serve as a physical barrier between decay-causing bacteria and your teeth.
  • Fluoride helps teeth repair minor damage to your teeth, and it can make teeth stronger and more resistant to cavities.
