Dr. Walters and his Carmel Dental Office team of professionals emphasize a preventive approach to dental care as the best way to keep your smile at its best. While dental decay and gum disease are the two most common conditions affecting dental health, they are also the most preventable. Our Preventive Dental Care program is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve restored teeth and to manage periodontal disease.
In addition to regular brushing and flossing the American Dental Association recommends a minimum of two dental checkups every year for professional cleaning and to detect any developing issues before they can develop. Regular visits to your Carmel dental office can help stop dental disease in its earliest stages to protect your smile.
Children in particular will benefit from this program because it helps maintain their baby teeth and ensure that the permanent teeth come in strong and healthy. We help our younger patients establish healthy habits early on, to make certain that their developing teeth will last a lifetime. As part of your or your child’s visit to our Carmel dental office our team can provide extra protection against tooth decay with dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Sealants are a thin, protective coating made from plastic or other dental material that adheres to the chewing surface of your child’s back teeth. They’re no substitute for brushing and flossing, but they can keep cavities from forming and may even stop early stages of decay from becoming a full-blown cavity. In fact, sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars. This is especially important when it comes to your child’s dental health.
Our comprehensive, state-of-the-art Carmel dental office makes it easy to keep up with preventive checkups for the whole family. At Smile Generators we make dental exams and teeth cleanings informative, engaging and stress-free. Please contact our Carmel dental office if you need any additional information, or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Walters.
