Cavities are a widespread oral health concern, but with state-of-the-art preventive care, our Avondale dentist keeps your smile cavity-free. At Desert Lake Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we recommend visiting us twice a year, for periodic teeth cleanings and dental examinations. Our goal is to prevent the onset and progress of tooth decay so that you and your family can enjoy a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.
Cavities occur due to a sticky film called plaque, which continuously accumulates in the mouth, harboring bacteria. The bacteria in plaque feed on sugar and produce acids, which erode tooth enamel. Although cavities can occur at any age, due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are especially susceptible. Studies show that 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental related illnesses. Our Avondale dentist offers dental sealants and fluoride treatments, to protect your child’s teeth. For all our patients, our dentist performs a thorough, professional teeth cleaning, removing plaque and tartar from spots you may have missed while brushing. A teeth cleaning is also an excellent opportunity for us to instruct you on better oral hygiene practices at home. Our dentist will also thoroughly examine your teeth, with the use of diagnostic films, as needed, to diagnose cavities. To treat a cavity, our dentist removes the decayed matter, then restores the tooth with a dental filling. We offer tooth-colored, composite resin fillings, which blend seamlessly with natural tooth structure, and are durable enough to withstand the force of your bite. Our team of professionals delivers precise and gentle treatment, keeping you at ease throughout your visit.
At Desert Lake Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, your family’s oral health is our number one priority. Our Avondale dentist is committed to helping you maintain healthy teeth throughout your life.
