At Moser Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we utilize leading-edge approaches to halt the onset and progress of adverse oral health conditions. By encouraging periodic preventive visits to our Buda dentist office, we can help our patients maintain healthy, beautiful smiles throughout their lives. Our preventive program includes professional teeth cleanings, examinations and oral cancer screenings that are designed to prevent dental disease and to detect as well as treat any conditions that are potentially harmful to oral health, early in their onset before they present significant problems.
Common oral health problems, such as tooth decay and periodontal disease, occur due to plaque buildup and the harmful bacteria it contains. Plaque is a sticky film, which gathers continuously in the mouth, harboring bacteria that feed on sugar. The bacteria in plaque produce acids, which erode tooth enamel and cause cavities to form. When plaque accumulates below the gum line, in can infect and inflame the soft tissues and supporting structures of the mouth, which leads to gum disease. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugar are important steps towards preventing the detrimental effects of plaque, plaque can also hide out in crevices of your mouth too difficult for your toothbrush to reach. During a professional teeth cleaning at our Buda dentist office, we thoroughly remove plaque, tartar and debris, and will guide you on how to better clean and care for your teeth at home. We strive to make preventive visits informative and engaging, especially for our youngest patients, teaching them the importance and responsibilities of oral hygiene. We also provide your child with extra protection against cavities using dental sealants and fluoride treatments. As part of a checkup visit for patients of all ages, we also provide a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Our goal is to diagnose conditions from the outset, when they are typically the easiest to treat.
With the comprehensive preventive care of our friendly, state-of-the-art Buda dentist office, it’s easy to keep up with checkups for the whole family. At Moser Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, our goal is to keep your teeth healthy from the start. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, call today.
