Did you know that tooth decay is so prevalent that it is second only to the common cold in frequency? Studies show that over 90% of adults have had a cavity in their lifetime, and tooth decay is widespread in children as well. Fortunately, with preventive checkups and routine care, our Fort Mitchell dentist can help to significantly reduce your family’s risk of dental disease. At Grandview Family Dental, we keep pace with the most advanced technology and methods of care to help our patients maintain optimal oral health.
Tooth decay can be attributed to the harmful consequences of dental plaque, which is a sticky biofilm, which accumulates over the teeth and feeds on the sugars in your diet. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages, help to protect your teeth from the detrimental effects of plaque, it’s also important to visit our Fort Mitchell dentist twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. By performing a professional teeth cleaning, we can eliminate any residual accumulations of plaque from areas that are difficult to reach while brushing or flossing your teeth. We’ll also teach you how to most effectively clean and care for your teeth at home. Furthermore, to help reduce the risk of cavities for our pediatric patients, we also offer dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments, which provide an added layer of protection against tooth decay. At every checkup visit, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed. Our goal is to diagnose cavities as well as any other conditions, which may be harmful to your oral health, at their outset, when they are typically easiest to address. Treating a cavity involves gently and precisely removing the decay, then restoring the tooth with a dental filling. You can rest assured that your family’s smiles are in the best of hands at our office. We utilize the latest generation of durable, tooth colored materials, which blend seamlessly with your smile for aesthetically pleasing results.
Our Fort Mitchell dentist focuses on prevention and early intervention when it comes to protecting your family’s smiles from tooth decay. At Grandview Family Dental, our leading-edge preventive program is designed to meet your whole family’s dental healthcare needs. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
