Using state-of-the-art technology and treatment methods, we’ll help you to prevent the onset and progress of tooth decay and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile throughout your life.
Cavities are caused by plaque, a sticky film that continuously accumulates in the mouth, harboring bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque produce acids that erode tooth enamel, causing small holes to form. To prevent the detrimental effects of plaque, it’s important to brush and floss your teeth daily, and to visit your dentist for a professional 77494 teeth cleaning. During a teeth cleaning, your dentist removes plaque and tartar from difficult to reach spots your toothbrush may have missed. Your dentist will also guide you on better techniques for caring for your teeth at home. As part of your checkup, your dentist examines your teeth, gums and their supporting structures, and uses diagnostic films as needed, to detect oral health conditions from their outset. When a cavity is present, the tooth decay will be gently and precisely cleaned away. Once this is done, a durable dental filling to restore the appearance and function of your tooth will be placed. A tooth colored, composite resin filling will blend seamlessly with your natural tooth structure, for the most functional, cosmetically pleasing results. Throughout your visit, your dentist will keep you comfortable, informed and relaxed.
With routine examinations and 77494 teeth cleanings, your dentist can prevent the onset and progress of tooth decay. At Katy Star Dental, we provide the highest quality care so that you can enjoy a lifetime of optimal oral health. To learn more, give us a call today.
