Common Dental Health Issues
You probably know that you should visit our Mesa office every six months for professional cleanings. What you may not know is how very important these visits are for detecting early warning signs of common dental health issues or how early detection is the best defense against serious oral health problems.
Dental Health Issues
One of the most common dental health issues we come across during biannual examinations is tooth decay. Often starting small, tooth decay can quickly progress, causing large dental cavities that impact the strength and health of your smile. When detected, our Mesa family dentists can provide swift treatment to prevent the cavity from growing and help protect the integrity of the affected tooth.
In addition to tooth decay, common dental health issues that can be detected during your routine visits include:
- Tooth infection
- Gum disease
- Excessive tartar build up
- Enamel erosion
All of these issues can be dealt with quickly and with minimal invasion when caught in their earliest stages. Left to progress however and these small issues can quickly turn into large problems leading to tooth loss along with a host of other oral and systemic health concerns. The best way to avoid more involved treatments is through routine dental care at our comfortable and convenient office.
Dental Health Solutions
For every dental health issue there is an ideal solution. Our dentists offer a full range of neuromuscular, restorative, general, and phase dentistry services that can be used alone or in specific combinations to help you obtain and sustain optimal oral health.
