Preventive Dentistry Is A Partnership
Welcome back to another March edition of our oral health blog! And, happy St. Patrick’s Day, by the way!
If you are looking for a dental practice in St.Petersburg, Florida that is family-friendly and provides comprehensive services in one welcoming location, then you have come to the right place.
At Jeffery A. Spilman DDS, our goal is to keep your Irish eyes smiling all year long! But we can’t do it alone. When it comes to preventive dentistry, your efforts at home are important. Maintaining excellent hygiene habits like brushing, flossing, and rinsing with fluoride, will go a long way.
Still, there are certain things that can only be accomplished in a dental office.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered when it comes to all the latest and greatest tools and technology. At Jeffery A. Spilman DDS, our preventative treatments include dental exams and professional teeth cleanings, dental sealants, fluoride treatments, etc.
Plus, we provide all the care you need in a laid-back, friendly environment. And if you have any dental anxiety or latent fear of the dentist, we’ll help you work through those issues with comfort options including dental sedation.
The bottom line is that, we want to keep your mouth clean and your smile looking great, whatever it takes!
Oral Exams And Thorough Teeth Cleanings
Ideally you should pay us a visit every 3-6 months once you have been entrusted to our care. This is for your own good!
Professional teeth cleanings can help you prevent cavities and decay, and they are far more pleasant than having to deal with dental fillings, root canals and extractions down the road.
Regular exams can also help with prevention and/or early treatment of gum disease and even cancer. You will want to have a dentist you can trust to be on top of such things.
But we can even offer further protection, if you are interested.
Sealants For Your Teeth
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, right? Dental sealants are made to seal off and further protect your teeth from cavities and decay. With sealants, we can prevent plaque and calculus from ever forming in the crowns of premolars and molars.
Fluoride Treatments And Fluoride Varnishes Are Available Too
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that is known for hardening and strengthening your tooth enamel.
By adding a basic fluoride rinse treatment to your preventive appointment with us, you can greatly increase your odds of avoiding cavities and decay.
Easy enough, right?
If you are interested, a fluoride varnish can take this treatment even further. By applying this temporary varnish to your teeth, we effectively coat them in fluoride for a time, creating a barrier between plaque and the surface of your teeth.
Honestly, when it comes to protecting your smile, we’ve got what you need!
