Preventing cavities in Wichita area children

Cavities and periodontal disease are the leading causes of tooth loss and poor oral health. East Wichita Dentist is here to help provide general and preventative care for those who want to improve their dental health and get assistance in preventing cavities. Patients in and around the Wichita area often come to our team of professionals to learn about the ways in which they can achieve and maintain a healthy smile.

Preventing cavities can be done with proper home hygiene and an attentive dental staff. By maintaining regular visits with the team of East Wichita Dentist, patients can rest easy knowing they are doing everything possible to keep smiles looking their best. Patients are encouraged to attend recall visits at the dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and examination to check for the early signs of decay or periodontal disease. Both can be devastating to the smile so it is essential that they be diagnosed early if they do occur.

Patients should also follow proper techniques for brushing and flossing and do so after every meal for optimum results. Flossing can be done once a day, preferably at night, to remove any food particles from between the teeth. When left on the teeth, they can cause the formation of bacteria and tartar that can eat away at enamel and result in cavities.

Patients who develop cavities will benefit from early diagnosis and fillings. Fillings are used to protect the area and keep the decay from getting worse. They help seal off the area. Individuals who have very large fillings placed might also need to have a dental crown made for further protection as the tooth may be weakened.

If you are interested in learning the best ways to care for your smile to achieve great oral health and keep it going for years to come, the team of East Wichita Dentist can help. The dentist and staff are committed to patients and their smiles and work hard to educate them on proper dental care for beautiful teeth for life!

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
