We offer family dentistry, which means we can provide treatments for smiles of all ages in your family, from the youngest to the oldest. The process starts with a simple exam and cleaning, which can help kids and adults alike. At your Avon, OH, dental practice, we can help protect your teeth and gums with routine checkups and cleanings.
A dental exam involves our team taking a close look at your teeth and gums, as well as roots and oral structures too. Along with a visual exam, we will employ advanced digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to make a diagnosis with precision and accuracy. We then create a treatment plan to address the concerns we’ve uncovered, so you can enjoy your best smile. Our team watches for tooth decay, infection, gingivitis, and even gum disease. We also screen for oral cancer and identify issues like TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). These visits benefit every member of your family, and we’re ready to see you now so you can start 2024 with a strong smile.
In addition to a dental checkup, we also clean your smile in the same visit. With a dental cleaning, we employ an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual pick to remove all plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth. A dental cleaning helps lower the risk of bad breath, teeth stains, and even periodontal issues like gingivitis and gum disease. We then polish the teeth to make it more difficult for plaque and tartar to form in between your six-month visits. The process also leaves your smile brighter! Remember, this helps people of all ages, even if you brush and floss daily.
What Happens Next?
Our team will schedule your next visit and if we’ve uncovered issues that need attention, we will discuss treatment. For example, for cavities we could place as filling in one visit, or create custom crowns to handle more severe cases. Our team can discuss periodontal treatment to manage the disease, or extraction to prevent wisdom teeth from causing trouble in early adulthood. Every smile is unique, and we will create a unique treatment plan to address the issues we uncover. We want you to enjoy optimal oral health in 2024 and beyond, so if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a visit, then please reach out to our team today.
