The Battle Against Tooth Decay: A Modern Guide

April 30, 2024

Tooth decay is the second most common health issue, following closely behind the common cold. Although cavities are largely preventable, they can lead to severe problems if left untreated. These issues include compromised tooth structure, damage to vital tissues inside the teeth, and even tooth loss.

The Causes of Tooth Decay and the Importance of Preventive Care

Tooth decay begins when plaque isn't consistently removed from around your teeth and gums. This dental plaque harbors bacteria that are detrimental to oral health, making regular cleaning a crucial step in preventing cavities.

At the office of Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants, we prioritize the detection and prevention of dental diseases early on to prevent minor issues from escalating into significant oral health problems. When you visit our practice for a checkup, you can trust that your smile and those of your loved ones are in good hands. We use state-of-the-art technology and techniques to thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and jaw for any signs of dental disease or developing issues.

As part of a comprehensive preventive care program, every checkup includes a professional teeth cleaning to remove any accumulations of plaque or tartar that you may have missed while brushing or flossing. Our dental team will also evaluate your home care routine and offer guidance on how to clean and care for your teeth more effectively between appointments.

Extra Preventive Care Measures for Children

Due to inconsistent oral hygiene habits and dietary choices, children are particularly prone to developing cavities. In fact, studies show that 78% of children will have had a cavity by the time they're 17 years old. As an added level of protection against tooth decay in children, our dentist often recommends periodic fluoride treatments and dental sealants.

Patient Comfort and Satisfaction: Our Top Priorities

If you are diagnosed with tooth decay, it's important not to delay treatment. Without care, cavities will worsen over time, causing more significant damage and discomfort. Our dentist will carefully remove any damaged tooth structure and place a restoration to restore your tooth's structural integrity, appearance, and function. We use the latest generation of cosmetically pleasing, tooth-colored materials that blend seamlessly with your smile.

Comprehensive Dental Solutions for Every Smile

While tooth decay is a widespread oral health concern, regular visits to our practice can help prevent cavities from forming. At the office of Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants, we provide personalized, state-of-the-art solutions for all your dental healthcare needs.

Going to the dentist is rarely something you look forward to, however Dr. Low and his team do a fantastic job of making sure it's not something you have to dread. Over five years of service, I've received root canals, fillings, crowns, deep root scaling - you name it; and not only has all of the work held strong, the experience was the best I've had anywhere.
