Preventive Care is Paramount
Why Are Dental Visits So Important?
Preventive care is the best way to keep your smile healthy. By combining positive oral hygiene habits with regular six-month dental appointments, your mouth will be a healthy environment for your teeth and gums. After each visit, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your teeth are in great shape and if there is something wrong, we’ll address the issue right away before it becomes a bigger, more costly problem. The earlier we catch a potential oral health issue, the better your outcome will be.
Strengthen Teeth, Reverse Tooth Decay
Fluoride treatments are the best way to keep your teeth healthy if you are cavity-prone. Fluoride has the unique ability to “remineralize” teeth and reverse the early stages of tooth decay. This simple, non-invasive procedure only takes a few minutes. During treatment, Dr. Miller will paint a fluoride-rich varnish on your teeth. This can be done as part of your routine cleaning to help keep your tooth enamel strong and cavity-free. You can resume your daily activities immediately after treatment!
Dental sealants consist of a clear liquid dental resin that is “painted” onto your back teeth after a cleaning. After the resin is applied to your teeth, it is then hardened with a UV light. Once it hardens, it becomes a strong, protective barrier that prevents food debris, oral bacteria, and acid from sticking in the pits and grooves of your teeth. This protects the area of a tooth most vulnerable to cavities.
more thorough than brushing & flossing
Proper oral hygiene at home is your first line of defense against common dental health issues. However, brushing and flossing alone cannot remove the bacteria from every surface of your tooth. At Shine Dental, we use specialized tools to keep every nook and cranny of your teeth free of harmful substances that lead to cavities and gum disease. You'll feel refreshed and healthy every time you leave our office after a cleaning!
