At Skyline Smiles- Roscoe Village, we use state-of-the-art technology and methods to deliver effective preventive dental care. We recommend visiting your Roscoe Village dental office twice a year for a professional cleaning and comprehensive examination. Keeping your teeth clean and catching oral health conditions early on is the best way to keep your smile healthy and beautiful throughout your life.
During your biannual examination, your dentist will provide comprehensive preventive care and educate you on better oral hygiene practices. Your Roscoe Village dental office strives to make dental care comfortable and stress-free for you and every member of your family. The main cause of gum disease and tooth decay is plaque, a sticky film that continuously accumulates in the mouth and harbors bacteria that feed on sugar. Your first line of defense against the effects of plaque is a commitment to brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary food. During your professional teeth cleaning, your dentist will remove any plaque or tartar from the difficult to reach spots that your toothbrush has not reached. While dental decay can occur at any age, due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are more prone to developing cavities. To prevent cavities in children, we recommend periodic fluoride treatments and the application dental sealants. Fluoride is a mineral that is applied to teeth to prevent the erosion of enamel, and dental sealants are protective coatings painted on the biting surfaces of children’s newly erupted permanent back teeth to prevent food debris and plaque from accumulating in the crevices. As part of every checkup for patients of all ages, your dentist will perform a clinical examination to detect oral health conditions in their earliest stages, before they develop into more serious problems. Early intervention allows for the most straightforward, effective course of treatment.
At Skyline Smiles, your Roscoe Village dental office, our goal is to keep teeth cavity free from the start. Our friendly staff and expert dentists will keep you relaxed and comfortable throughout treatment. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
