Routine dental exams are an integral part of keeping your teeth and mouth healthy. Even if your last visit was cavity-free, it is important not to skip an appointment. Remember, oral problems can develop quickly and may lead to other health problems if left untreated, even just for a short period of time. Oral exams are recommended every six months, but the frequency of exams may vary depending on your personalized treatment plan.
Other than brushing and flossing your teeth every day, it is essential that you get your teeth cleaned every six months to prevent cavities and gum disease. After a routine dental exam, we may provide you with a teeth cleaning procedure, as well.
We provide dental fillings to restore damage due to tooth decay. We use white composite fillings to make sure the restored tooth looks and feels natural.
In addition, we offer dental sealants which are a thin, plastic coating that acts as a protective shield over the tooth enamel. It quickly bonds into the depressions of the teeth, preventing tooth decay.
A root canal procedure involves extracting decayed pulp from inside of the tooth, cleaning or reshaping the canal, and sealing it for protection. We recommend this procedure to stop the infection from spreading throughout the tooth, gum, and jaw bone.
