Tooth decay affects more than 90% of adults between the ages of 20 and 65, and 78% of children by the age of 17 years old. Although cavities are a widespread oral health concern, with periodic visits to our Fremont dentist, a healthy diet, and a good oral hygiene routine at home, cavities are preventable. At Aarisha Dental we recommend visiting us twice a year for checkup exams, professional cleanings and treatments to keep your family’s smiles healthy, beautiful and cavity-free. We personalize care to accommodate the individual needs of each member of your family, keeping you informed and at ease throughout every visit.
Cavities form when there is a buildup of plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque produce acids that eat away at tooth enamel, creating small holes in your teeth. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages, are important steps you can take daily towards protecting your teeth from cavities, it’s also important to visit our Fremont dentist for professional teeth cleanings and examinations. During your teeth cleaning, we’ll thoroughly remove any residual plaque buildup from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We also take the time to provide the educational tools your family needs to establish healthy oral hygiene habits. For our pediatric patients, preventive checkups may include the application of fluoride treatments and dental sealants, which offer an added layer of protection against cavities. For every member of your family, our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed. While we strive to prevent dental disease, we provide prompt care for any teeth that exhibit signs of tooth decay. To treat a cavity, we’ll gently and precisely remove the damaged tooth structure, then restore your tooth with a durable, tooth colored dental filling, which blends seamlessly with your smile, for the most natural looking results.
At Aarisha Dental, our Fremont dentist focuses on prevention and early intervention when it comes to your family’s oral health. To learn more about preventing cavities or to schedule an appointment, call today.
