Nearly everyone knows how important brushing and flossing are for maintaining good oral health. Although you may think you are taking good care of your teeth, the truth is that brushing and flossing are only half the battle. In order to ensure good oral health, it is also important to visit an experienced dentist. Regular check-ups and preventive dentistry treatments can keep your smile healthy, and keep it going strong.
Treatments For Maintaining a Healthy Smile
With preventive methods, you can reduce your risk of enamel wear, cavities, gum disease, and other potential health problems. Without appropriate attention and care, these problems can worsen, and require restorative dentistry procedures down the road.
Going in for regular cleanings is just one way you can support long-term oral health and avoid dental issues. Here at Samaritan Dental Arts, we offer thorough cleanings that remove plaque and stains and keeps your teeth healthy all year round. Our preventative treatments also include:
- High Resolution Imaging and X-Rays: used to discover dental problems that are otherwise not able to be seen.
- Fluoride Treatments: used to prevent tooth decay and strengthen tooth enamel.
- Sealants: plastic coating that is generally applied to the back of the teeth and is used to protect teeth from decay and cavities.
We offer all these treatments and more, in addition to the latest educational information on how you can improve your dental health in your own home.
