Brushing your teeth each morning and night, as well as make a conscious effort to remember to floss your teeth at least once each day. It’s also very important to clean behind each of your rear molars as well as along the gumline. With consistency, this daily routine can significantly reduce your chances of suffering from gum disease and cavities.
The American Dental Association also recommends having a dentist like Dr. Michael D. Spencer and Dr. Moshea perform a routine dental checkup every six months. This appointment will clean your teeth while also identifying any early signs of an oral health problem.
Should our dentist notice the early signs of a problem they and Riverside Dental’s staff will help you understand the most effective treatment or preventive measures.
If there are excessive bacterial deposits trapped in the biting surface textures of your back teeth, he might recommend applying dental sealants. This is a special type of dental resin that our dentist carefully paints onto the biting surfaces on each of your molars and premolars.
At that point our dentist will harden the dental sealants with an ultraviolet light this will fully bond with them to the underlying tooth enamel. This will effectively create an invisible barrier that prevents bacterial deposits from direct access to the underlying tooth enamel.
If you live in the Jacksonville, Florida, area and you have oral health or cavity prevention concerns you should call 904.355.5531 to schedule a dental checkup at Riverside Dental.
