The old saying "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" is most certainly true, especially when it comes to dentistry. We believe that the best dentistry is no dentistry! Shocking to hear? Well it's true, but it works in cases where there has been good adherence to life long healthy practices. We can help you get on that road!
Regular routine cleanings to remove bacteria and plaque from teeth help natural teeth and dental restorations last longer. Oral habits change over the lifetime of patients. Sealants in children and high-sugar consuming adults help prevent the formation of decay in the deep grooves of the teeth. Some teenagers may consume sodas and sugary snacks at an alarming rate. College students may find that eating away from home may mean less healthy homemade cooking and more "fast food" and soda and vending machine consumption during late night studying. Older adults sometimes find there is a decrease of salivary flow, especially combined with increased use of medications that cause dry-mouth, allowing cavity formation to reactivate or develop anew.
Did you know that over your lifetime, small fillings may be replaced several times, becoming bigger and bigger each time? Eventually, they need crowns and root canals and bridges or may eventually result in tooth loss. Such is the lifecycle of a tooth restoration due to normal everyday biting and chewing with foods. Obviously, a cavity needs to be repaired. Our goal is to reduce this cycle of ever increasing restorations through early detection and prevention by providing routine exams and care.
