There is certainly more to oral health care than just treatment for dental decay. With that said, cavities remain a common concern, and a problem that will affect many people at least once. You can protect yourself against the threat of this and other problems with a consistent oral hygiene routine at home. You should also take advantage of the regular services provided by your Ankeny, IA dentist. Through our regular services, we can help you prevent trouble with cavities, gum disease, and other threats. We can also identify when there is a need for us to step in and provide restorative work for cavities that have formed.
Your Dentist Can Help You Protect Your Teeth Against Dental Decay
Our practice is certainly here to support you in the event that you have a cavity. Of course, if you want to avoid a situation where you need treatment for tooth decay, you should make sure that you come in regularly for preventive services. Routine dental exams provide you with access to thorough teeth cleanings, and they ensure that your smile is closely studied for any signs of trouble that we will want to address through restorative treatment. Unless you are told to follow something different, you should commit to a plan to book a new oral health procedure every six months.
Our Preventive Oral Health Services
Through your regular preventive services, you receive important support in the form of dedicated dental cleanings and studies of your teeth, gums, and oral structures. While it is possible for us to catch active problems and treat them, we can also protect you by cleaning the tartar and plaque from your smile. Removing these deposits will make you less likely to experience trouble with dental decay in the future. Tartar buildup is particularly important to treat, as you will not be able to remove these deposits by brushing and flossing.
Taking Care Of Cavities When They Form
Through timely restorative dental work, we can make sure that your problems with decay are resolved before there are complications. We provide timely services that include work with lifelike dental fillings and dental crowns to restore teeth damaged by decay. Both fillings and crowns can be made to imitate healthy enamel, and they also provide functional support so that you can bite and chew food without difficulty.
