Practice Prevention At Home
As a parent, it is up to you to set a good example for your brood. They will be watching you and will pick up on your excellent daily hygiene habits at like brushing, flossing, and rinsing with fluoride.
What you do in-between visits to our St. Petersburg dentist’s office will be the foundation upon which we will build your program of prevention.
There will always be more work needed to keep your mouth free of bacteria and your smile looking as good as it possibly can when those school bells ring.
Remember: any plaque that is overlooked or out of reach will harden and become calculus (tartar). That calculus will be behave badly, eating away at the enamel of your teeth, contributing to decay, tooth loss, and, eventually, bone loss.
In many cases, only a well-trained eye can see what is going on in your mouth before it causes undue pain and expense.
Plus, to handle the situation, it usually requires special tools that you won’t find in your medicine cabinet.
Fortunately, we’ve got just what you need. At Jeffrey A. Spilman DDS, our preventative treatments include comprehensive oral exams and professional teeth cleanings, dental sealants, fluoride treatments, and a whole lot more.
Exams And Cleanings Go A Long Way
We are here to help you take it further than you can at home. Our teeth cleanings can help you ward off cavities and decay, and, trust us, they are much more enjoyable than ignoring your needs now and then having to get dental fillings, root canals, gum disease treatments, or extractions later.
Besides the usual stuff, we can add an extra layer of protection by setting you up with dental sealants and fluoride varnishes. Whatever your needs may be, we will take care of it.
