Cavities can be filled, but it is better to prevent them in the first place. If your dentist seems to conjure up cavities at every visit, then it's up to you to break the cycle. At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA, we are here to help you do that!
How can you lift the cavity curse? Call our office to schedule a checkup! Along with daily brushing and flossing, regular cleanings and checkups are the best way to ensure you have good dental health. That means clean teeth with no cavities, and pink healthy gums.
A cleaning removes any built-up plaque. Plaque is that sticky, filmy stuff that forms on teeth. It is the main cause of tooth decay and gum disease.
After the cleaning, it's time for the checkup itself. We'll look for any new cavities that may have appeared since your last visit. We might take X-rays, although this is not done at every visit. We'll examine your gums, too, for any signs of gum disease.
Finally, we'll look at your tongue, throat, face and and head, and your neck. We're checking for swelling or redness, or any signs of cancer.
Dentists never conjure up cavities, but we take care of any that might be there. The reason for this misconception is simple: our advanced dental technology makes us able to identify and analyze minuscule cavities that you may not be able to see with your naked eye. So, when you show up to the cleaning, it seems they have only just appeared. In truth, you are right on time to fill them and avoid more uncomfortable procedures like a root canal!
