Where can I find a dentist in Roscoe Village?
According to the Center for Disease Control, tooth decay is the second most common chronic illness, after the common cold. Although cavities are a prevalent concern, with state-of-the-art preventive care, your Roscoe Village dentist can help you maintain stronger, healthier teeth. At Skyline Smiles, our goal is to keep your teeth cavity free from the start, and to detect tooth decay at its outset, when it is easiest to treat.
Plaque is the main culprit for causing tooth decay. This sticky film continuously accumulates in the mouth, harboring bacteria that erode tooth enamel. Daily brushing and flossing, as well as periodic teeth cleanings with your Roscoe Village dentist help to get rid of plaque before it causes damage to your teeth. During your teeth cleaning, your dentist and professional staff provide informative and engaging guidance on better techniques for your at-home care routine. Establishing proper oral hygiene habits is especially important for our youngest patients, who are just embarking on a lifelong journey maintaining optimal oral health. Although cavities can occur at any age, lifestyle and dietary habits make children especially susceptible. Studies show that more than 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental disease. We provide fluoride treatments and dental sealants, which are proven to reduce your child’s risk of cavities.
Examining the teeth, gums and their supporting structures, and using diagnostic films, as needed, your dentist can diagnose a cavity early on, for the most straightforward, effective course of treatment. To treat a cavity, your dentist gentle and precisely removes the decayed matter from the tooth, cleans the area, then seals the tooth with restorative materials. A tooth-colored, composite resin filling blends seamlessly with your natural tooth structure, for cosmetically pleasing and functional results. A filling is durable to withstand the force of your bite, and restores the appearance of a tooth after treatment.
At Skyline Smiles, we can prevent the onset and progress of tooth decay, with periodic checkups. Your Roscoe Village dentist provides compassionate care, making dental visits a stress-free experience for you and your family.
