PREVENTIVE DENTAL CARE
At A&M Dentists we are committed to helping young patients feel comfortable visiting the dentist so that dental exams and cleanings become a normal part of life rather than something to fear.
Dental phobia is common among adults, and this fear often begins in childhood after a traumatic dental experience.
Our professional team employs a wide range of techniques, including modeling and positive reinforcement, to help children relax and cooperate with us during the treatment process so that they will view dental care in a positive light for a lifetime.
Every dental exam and cleaning appointment includes fluoride application to the teeth. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens weak spots in the enamel, preventing acid erosion and decay. Professional fluoride applications not only help prevent cavities but can also reverse decay in its earliest stages.
Twice-yearly dental exams and cleanings are essential for optimal oral health. The purpose of the exams is to stay on top of newly developing problems. Early detection of cavities, gum disease, or tooth eruption issues allows us to take conservative measures to treat or even reverse these conditions. Professional teeth cleanings help remove plaque and tartar from the teeth for healthier and brighter smiles!
