At Smile Generators P.C, we place an emphasis on prevention and early intervention when it comes to maintaining your family’s oral health. As per the recommendations of the American Dental Association, we encourage biannual visits to our Carmel dentist office, for teeth cleanings, examinations, oral cancer screenings and treatments to protect the health of your smile. Our highly trained professional team is dedicated to your care and comfort and keeps you and your loved ones well informed and at ease throughout the course of care.
Common oral health problems such as tooth decay and gum disease can be attributed to a sticky film called plaque, which accumulates continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugars in your diet. The bacteria produce acids, which eats away at tooth enamel, forming cavities. When plaque gathers below the gum line, it also creates damage as it infects and inflames the tissues supporting your teeth, leading to periodontal disease. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugar daily, are essential to your oral health, it’s also important to visit our Carmel dentist office for periodic exams and professional teeth cleanings. During your cleaning visit, we thoroughly remove plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums as well as teach you how to brush and floss more effectively at home. To help our pediatric patients establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of oral health, we teach the proper methods of brushing and flossing and the benefits of a healthy diet.
As an added level of protection against tooth decay, we provide pediatric patients with dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments. For patients of all ages, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination, using advanced digital radiography, as needed. This exam allows us to assess your oral health and diagnose any potentially harmful from their outset, when they’re typically easiest to treat.
When you visit us at Smile Generators P.C, for a checkup, you can expect the personalized, gentle care you and your family deserve. Our Carmel dentist office utilizes the most advanced technology and methods to halt the onset and progress of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
