When it comes to dental care, preventive services are at the top of the list in terms of importance. Regular checkups and teeth cleanings help patients avoid addressing dental issues down the line. We stress prevention as a proactive way to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. These visits also help us catch any problems before they become large and/or painful. Good oral care is linked to overall health, and it is important for children and adults alike. Our office works with each patient to set up a comprehensive dental plan that includes preventive services as part of the package. We will recommend care based on your overall dental health and history, so you’ll have a plan tailored to your specific needs. Our preventive services can include digital X-rays, fluoride treatment, and even sealants, if warranted. We strive to provide your oral health with a good line of defense against bacterial and plaque build up. We’ll also discuss how to set up a good home-care program for you or your child, along with brushing and flossing recommendations. Whenever possible, preventive dental care is always preferable to dental treatment to address an issue.
If restorative dental services are needed, we are able to provide them as well. Our full-service office provides everything from basic fillings to periodontal disease treatment to dentures. Whether we are addressing one problem or coming up with an overall treatment plan, we will work with you to make sure you understand exactly what our recommendations are, and we are always happy to answer your questions at any time along the way. For a more complete picture of our restorative services, please visit the Services Index page on our website or call the office in Bethalto to speak to a staff member. If restorative services are required, we also provide a full range of amenities designed to help you feel comfortable before, during, and after treatment. We will talk with you about what might work best for you prior to starting any dental work.
