At North Arlington Dental Care and Orthodontics, we encourage preventative dentistry. Keeping up on your regular dental check-ups can help you maintain a healthy smile. We know life is busy, but visiting your dentist on a regular basis can actually save you time and money down the road. At a dental check-up, your dentist can catch early signs of tooth decay, gum disease and other oral problems. When caught early, most of the time, treatment is less extensive and less expensive! In addition, when you maintain a healthy smile it contributes to your overall health. We want to help you maintain a healthy smile and a healthier lifestyle!
Gum disease is something that affects many Americans. Catching gum disease early is the key. The beginning stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. When caught early, at-home care can reverse the symptoms and prevent the gum disease from worsening. However, if gum disease is left untreated, it can eventually turn into periodontitis which requires more extensive treatment. Periodontitis not only affects your oral health but your overall health as well.
Teeth grinding at night can damage your smile. Referred to as bruxism, teeth grinding can be treated and prevented. We can create a custom-made oral appliance to keep your teeth from any further damage. If you have trouble with teeth grinding, call our office today to schedule a consultation.
We know life can get busy and fitting in dental care can be a challenge, which is why we will work with your schedule to help you setup the best appointment times for both you and your family. If you are looking for a dentist and live in the Arlington, TX area, your search can end here! Call us today to take a great first step toward maintaining a healthy smile!
