According to statistics, more than 90% of adults ages 20-64 have had a cavity in their lifetime. In children, the incidence of tooth decay is also high. More than 78% of children have had a cavity by the time they reach 17 years of age. While these numbers may seem alarming, the truth is that dental disease is almost entirely preventable. By combining an effective regimen of oral hygiene at home with routine care at your dentist in 53406, you can help protect your teeth from decay. At the office of Dr. Steven W. Campbell we utilize the most advanced technology and methods of care to halt the onset and progress of cavities, allowing your family to enjoy a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.
Tooth decay is caused by plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in your mouth. As the harmful bacteria in plaque metabolize dietary sugars, they produce acids, which eat away at tooth enamel and form small holes in your teeth. By brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugar, you are helping to prevent the buildup of plaque and protect your teeth from cavities. While a good regimen of oral car at home is of the utmost importance to keep your smile healthy, plaque can still accumulate in difficult to reach areas between the teeth and gums. For these areas and more, periodic professional teeth cleanings as provided by our dental team are essential. During your teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove any residual plaque and tartar, and offer guidance as to how you can improve or refine your daily oral hygiene routine. For our pediatric patients we offer an added level of protection against tooth decay with the periodic application of topical fluoride treatments and the application of dental sealants. At every checkup visit, patients of all ages, receive a comprehensive examination from our dentist in 53406, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed. If we detect a cavity, our dentist will gently and precisely remove the decay, then restore the tooth with a dental filling. We utilize the latest generation of durable, tooth colored restorative materials, which blend seamlessly with your smile for the most natural looking results.
With periodic checkups, our dentist in 53406 can prevent cavities and help you family maintain excellent oral health. At the office of Dr. Steven W. Campbell, we offer leading-edge solutions to make dental care easy and stress-free. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
