Prevention-Oriented Dentistry

Family Dentistry Fort Worth Are you a Fort Worth area parent of young children? Do you want them to develop better oral hygiene habits than you did when you were young? Perhaps you have a beautiful smile and want to prevent tooth decay. Many Fort Worth people have a mouth full of fillings and don’t want to add another one to their collection.

At Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we have a prevention-oriented philosophy of dental care.

Your first step toward dental health begins with a prevention consultation with Dr. Stephen Ratcliff.

Family dentistry patients of all ages need to start with an exam to determine their current status. Your dental condition is influenced by your dietary habits, previous dental work, physical health, medications, lifestyle and family history. After a comprehensive analysis, Dr. Stephen Ratcliff can establish a decay prevention plan just for you.

A prevention plan is a multi-faceted approach designed to maintain optimum dental health. It involves affordable preventative services at Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. Twice-yearly exams reveal early problems before they progress. Deep cleanings prevent a multitude of serious dental issues for our Fort Worth area patients who faithfully keep their regular cleaning appointments.

Oral health cannot be maintained solely in our office. Daily brushing and flossing is essential. A healthy diet is necessary and will deliver benefits to your whole body – not just your teeth.

If you suspect you have a cavity or gum disease, call us at 817-274-7875 before it gets worse. We can successfully treat your current problems and restore your dental health. In addition, we will set you on the path toward a healthier future. If you have let your dental health slide, we do offer cosmetic and restorative dentistry services to give you back your healthy, white smile.
