Keeping Your Healthy Teeth Healthy
The best defense is a good offense, and this applies to dentistry as well. By preparing for common oral health conditions and taking regular action to prevent them, you are better able to keep tooth decay, gum disease and other problems at bay, treating problems at early stages before they become severe.
At Canyon Rim Dental, our dentists, Dr Sean Cook and Dr. Brian Mooney, provide preventive treatments and diagnostics such as:
- Cone Beam 3D Imaging
- Dental Sealants
- Digital X-Rays
- Fluoride Treatment
- Oral Cancer Screening
The goal of preventive care is to protect your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease) and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to avert these diseases before they cause damage that requires repair. We offer a number of preventive dental treatments to help you keep your smile in the best possible health. These services include dental sealants and dental cleanings; visiting our office regularly ensures that we detect and treat any early signs of damage before they become more extensive and painful.
There are several steps you can take to prevent cavities and tooth decay. Our dentists and team recommend that you follow these guidelines to help minimize your chances for developing cavities:
- Brush and floss your teeth every day. You should brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste.
- Maintain a balanced, healthy diet with a limited amount of very sugary or acidic foods.
- Visit our office at least twice a year for a routine teeth cleaning and dental exam.
- Ask our team about dental sealants and fluoride treatment to see if they are right for your smile.
