Preventative Visits To Sustain A Bright Smile
The best way to ensure the health of your teeth, mouth and gums is through preventive care. We are experts in maintenance and in fortifying the structures of the oral cavity against damage and disease. You’ll find that comfort and compassion for our patients’ needs are our top priorities. Preventative Dentistry solutions include cleanings, x-rays, sealants and fluoride.
TYPES OF PREVENTATIVE DENTISTRY
The dentists at Tampa Bay Smile Makers strive to provide comprehensive care for all of our patients. X-Rays, also known as radiographs, are an essential part of any dental care treatment plan. X-rays assist in the diagnosis of potential oral care issues and are also used to prevent potential problems in the future.
If you are a new patient at Tampa Bay Smile Makers, we perform a full set of dental X-rays, which is our way of caring for our patients and their smiles.
Sealants vs. Fluoride
Both Sealant and Fluoride are preventative procedures that combat tooth decay. Fluoride fights decay and bonds with enamel, increasing the strength of the teeth and giving the tooth a greater resistance to bacteria. Sealant is a thin, plastic coating placed on the biting surface of permanent molars to prevent decay.
