As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
At Amburgey Dental, our staff seek to educate our patients on preventative measures that can be performed at home. We will discuss proper tooth brushing, flossing, and rinsing at routine hygiene appointments. In addition, Dr. Amburgey offers flouride treatments, oral cancer screenings, digital x-rays, and sealants.
X-rays are an essential, diagnostic, preventative tool that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dental x-rays may reveal problems such as abscesses or cysts, bone loss, cancerous tumors, decay between teeth, poor root positions, and problems below the gum line.
A sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to any deep grooves in the teeth. Deep grooves are often hard to clean and therefore become susceptible to decay. A sealant can be placed in a few minutes and it offers protection from decay for many years.
