Take Advantage Of Access To Preventive Care

Our Ankeny, IA dental office is a comprehensive family practice, and we work with many different insurance plans. Taking advantage of the benefits available to you can help you protect yourself against problems that might lead to a true dental emergency, one that can push you into a visit on short notice. Making the most of your access to preventive dental care can help you avoid difficulties over time. During routine appointments, we provide thorough feedback to patients about their well-being and also provide dental cleanings that keep them safe against threats like dental decay and gum disease. 

Are You Using Your Dental Benefits To Schedule And Attend Regular Exams?

When you take advantage of your coverage and schedule routine dental exams, you have more protection against problems like tooth decay and gum disease, and opportunities to receive help for other problems that may impact your smile. Unless you are following instructions from your dentist to do something different, you should make plans to go in for preventive care every six months. Being consistent with this schedule will help you stay in good oral health. It also reduces your risk for developing a problem that can worsen and call for more complicated care in time.

What Exams Protect You Against?

In the course of your visit, you can look forward to having your teeth cleaned, and you can enjoy a review from Dr. Foust that will alert you to any issues that might call for additional care. We provide more than just a standard teeth cleaning for our patients. If you show signs of gum disease, we can move forward with a periodontal cleaning before this problem leads to undesirable complications that make your infection harder to manage. We can also help you take care of your smile if you have a tendency to grind your teeth while you sleep. This habit can lead to telling wear and tear on your enamel that we can point out. We can also discuss services capable of addressing this problem to improve your smile.

Dealing With Problems Identified At An Appointment

If you have a problem with gum disease or tooth decay that we identify at an appointment, we can talk to you about your treatment options. When caught in time, a cavity can be treated with a dental filling. If too much damage has already occurred, we can instead restore your tooth with a custom dental crown.
