Preventive Dentistry Starts At Home

It goes without saying that, as a parent, it is up to you to set the standards high for your kids. 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.

Keep in mind that 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 certain situations, only the well-trained eye of a professional 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.

The good news is that, we’ve got just what you need around here. 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 besides.

We’ll Keep You Smiling!

We can take prevention deeper than you can at home. Our professional teeth cleanings can help you ward off cavities and decay, and they are far more pleasant than what happens when you ignore your needs now and then have to get dental fillings, root canals, periodontal disease treatments, or extractions down the road.

In addition to all that, 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 so you won’t have to worry.

Come In Right Away!

We know that you are busy getting everything in order, but we wouldn’t want you lose sight of your family’s oral health care needs.
