Diving Deeper Into Dental Decay: What You Should Know

March 25, 2024

While most people are aware of the common cold, few realize that tooth decay is almost as prevalent. Cavities might be mostly preventable, but without treatment, they can lead to damaged tooth structure, compromised vital tissues inside the tooth, and even severe infection or tooth loss.

The origins of dental decay and the significance of early prevention

Dental cavities form when plaque isn't regularly removed from around your teeth and gums. This dental plaque harbors dangerous bacteria that can harm your oral health, so keeping it under control is crucial for preventing tooth decay.

At the office of Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants, we prioritize early detection and prevention of dental disease to help you avoid small issues escalating into bigger oral health problems. When you visit us for a checkup, you can trust that your smile and those of your loved ones are in safe hands. We use state-of-the-art technology and techniques to meticulously examine your teeth, gums, and jaw for any indication of dental issues or developing problems.

In line with our comprehensive preventive care program, every checkup includes a professional dental cleaning to remove any accumulations of plaque or tartar that you might have missed while brushing or flossing. Our dental team will also review your home care routine and provide guidance on how you can improve your oral hygiene habits between visits.

Additional preventive care measures for children

Due to inconsistent oral hygiene practices and eating habits, children are particularly prone to developing cavities. In fact, research shows that 78% of children will have had a cavity by age 17. To further safeguard children against tooth decay, our dentist frequently recommends periodic fluoride treatments and dental sealants as an added layer of protection.

Patient care and comfort are at the heart of everything we do

If you are diagnosed with tooth decay, it's essential not to delay treatment. Untreated cavities will worsen and cause more damage and discomfort over time. Our dentist will gently remove any damaged tooth structure and place a restoration to rebuild your tooth's structural integrity, appearance, and function. We also use the latest generation of aesthetically pleasing, tooth-colored materials that blend seamlessly with your smile.

Comprehensive care for every smile at our dental office

Although tooth decay is a widespread oral health issue, with regular visits to our office, cavities can be almost entirely prevented. At the office of Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants, we offer personalized, cutting-edge solutions tailored to meet all your dental healthcare needs.
