We recommend that all of our patients visit us at least every six months for a regular dental checkup. These checkups are essential to maintaining your dental health and ensuring there are no emerging issues. All of our regular checkups include a thorough examination, a professional teeth cleaning, an oral cancer screening, and when necessary, digital X-rays.
Dental sealants are clear plastic coatings that are painted on the chewing surfaces of the molars. The pits and grooves on these teeth are prime areas for bacteria to become stuck and decay to form. Even regular brushing sometimes misses these hard-to-reach areas. The sealants act as a barrier to prevent debris from getting stuck and bacteria from growing. They also make the teeth easier to clean by creating a smoother surface. Sealants are most often recommended for children, but they can be beneficial for adults in some cases as well. Ask the dentist if sealants are right for you or your child.
While it’s always our goal to help our patients avoid cavities, they do happen. When a cavity occurs, it is important to receive a high-quality restoration as soon as possible so that the damage does not continue to grow. Made from high-quality composite material, we offer tooth-colored fillings to treat cavities. We will work to ensure these restorations match your natural tooth color for a seamless repair. Tooth-colored fillings are safe for patients of all ages, and they contain no metals.
