Are you or your child prone to cavities? If so, we may recommend fluoride treatments to strengthen tooth enamel. Fluoride makes your teeth more resistant to acid attacks from the bacteria in plaque.
Dental exams can help you save money in the long run on emergency care and tooth restorations. This is because we’re often able to detect cavities and other issues early while they’re at their most treatable.
Are you at high risk for cavities? If so, our dentists may recommend dental sealants for your molars (back teeth).cover the chewing surface of your molars. This eliminates deep pits and grooves where plaque can hide.
Your risk of oral cancer is higher if you have a history of smoking, drinking, or spending a lot of time outside. Yet, our dentists offer oral cancer screenings to all our patients. That way, we’re able to catch oral cancer in its early stages.
