The Key to a Healthy Smile
Preventative Dentistry in Colorado Springs
Proper oral hygiene habits are the best way to avoid dental health issues, but routine appointments and professional cleanings will reach the places in your mouth that brushing and flossing miss. Skipping routine appointments will make it more likely for small issues to turn into painful or costly problems down the road. It could also lead to dental emergencies. That’s why during regular checkups, Dr. Boals makes sure to assess your dental health and address any issues with judgment-free care.
Keep Teeth Strong
The Benefits of Fluoride Treatments
Natural wear and tear, consumption of sugary foods and beverages, and neglecting your oral hygiene routine can put your teeth at risk of forming cavities and decay. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that strengthens tooth enamel and helps patients avoid these issues. During a fluoride treatment, Dr. Boals will apply a highly concentrated gel to your teeth which starts a process called “remineralization”. This process adds minerals to your tooth enamel in areas where they have been lost, strengthening teeth and helping you avoid tooth decay.
Protect Your Smile
How Dental Sealants Help
Patients at high risk of developing cavities, like children and teens, are good candidates for dental sealants. This treatment is quick and non-invasive, and once the sealant is applied, it can protect your teeth from harmful bacteria and help you avoid decay. During the procedure, Dr. Boals will “paint” a thin coat of sealant onto the chewing surfaces of your teeth. When it hardens, the sealant acts as a shield, giving you peace of mind knowing that your teeth are covered.
Avoid Common Issues
The importance of Periodontal Care
Periodontal disease (gum disease) affects about half of American adults, but often goes untreated because its symptoms aren’t severe until it reaches advanced stages. The most prominent sign of periodontal disease in its early stages is bleeding while brushing or flossing. At Kissing Camels Family Dentistry, we help patients in Colorado Springs avoid gum disease with deep cleanings like scaling and root planing. This procedure removes plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums for a healthy, carefree smile.
