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 Stephen Ratcliff Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington TX, we are here to help you.
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, head, and neck. We’re checking for swelling or redness, or any signs of cancer.
At Stephen Ratcliff Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington TX, prevention is always the best medicine. Dentists never conjure up cavities but we take care of any that might be there. People from Mansfield and Grand Prairie come to us for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
