Correcting cavities, not just brushing them aside.
It’s sometimes easy to ignore, but a little bit of tooth decay always leads to a little bit more. The outcome of these untreated problems inevitably becomes pain, emergency treatment, and tooth loss. Regular checkups help us identify existing and new cavities, and periodic cleanings at our practice remove mineralized deposits that harbor millions of harmful infection causing bacteria. Many studies suggest that illnesses like heart disease, endocarditis, and Alzheimer’s are linked to poor oral health. If you are in a high risk category we can work with you to create a customized approach to your visits and your dental home care routine.
