GET THE FULL TREATMENT
Good old fashioned brushing and flossing are still at the top of the list of things that improve oral hygiene, but are you doing it right? Regular check-ups with your dentist can ensure that you are, and professional cleanings can give you the smile you really want.
At West Mobile Dental Care, we want to ensure that our patients are getting full dental care that includes letting you know what you can do to stay healthy.
WARD OFF GUM DISEASE
Gum disease is an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place. It is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. Good hygiene and consulting with your dentist can help you fight gum disease early, before tooth loss.
DETECT DENTAL PROBLEMS EARLY
Regular check-ups screen for both gum disease and oral cancer. Catching those early is the best way to avoid serious damage. Cavities and broken fillings are easy to treat and fix. If you let them wait, it could lead to painful root canals, gum surgery or extractions.
DIAGNODENT CAN SAVE YOUR SMILE
Among the newest technologies at West Mobile Dental Care is a small laser instrument called the DIAGNOdent, which scans your teeth for hidden decay. A pen-like probe simply glides over the tooth surfaces constantly checking the health of the tooth and finding hidden cavities.
