Healthy Teeth Make Lasting Smiles

Life can take its toll on your teeth. Almost everyone discovers that they have a cavity at one time or another.

Finding Cavities Before They Take Hold

We like to catch cavities as early as possible so that we can preserve your tooth structure and strength. In fact, when some tiny cavities are caught early enough, they can be filled without using any anesthetic.

Early detection of cavities is important for patients of all ages.

Consistent exams, cleanings, dental sealants and conservative repairs can help keep the teeth's natural strength and beauty without the use of metals or waiting for things to become worse and more difficult to treat. Remember, dental decay is the number one chronic disease of children, so don't put off a healthy start for your child.

What is a Dental Sealant?

Some types of teeth need a little more care and attention than others. Some people have deep grooves and fissures in their molars. These grooves collect plaque and keep it there. Since the bacteria found in dental plaque causes tooth decay, the longer plaque remains on a tooth's surface the more likely it will form a cavity. By bonding sealants of plastic resin into these grooves, we make the surface of your tooth smoother and much easier to clean. This is an especially important procedure for children who may have a history of cavities.

What if I Have a Cavity?

At Miskovich Dental Clinic, we offer all types of restorations, from metal-free fillings and bonding to inlays, onlays and crowns designed to repair cavities and keep your mouth healthy and beautiful. As always, we work in partnership with you to choosing the filling that is right for your particular circumstance.
