Good oral health is a significant component of every individual's overall health. Family dental professionals offer essential dental care for the entire household and focus on maintaining the oral health of each person irrespective of age. Adults, children, and teens have different dental needs. The family dentists at Kids & Adult Dental Care in Indianapolis are experienced at delivering the comprehensive oral care required for an entire family's needs at every stage of their life.
Importance of Good Oral Health
As family dentists, we provide dental services that focus on keeping your teeth healthy and vibrant, so your facial structure is maintained. In addition, a healthy mouth reflects the overall health of your body. People who care about their general health are usually more conscious about their oral health.
Our mouth is home to millions of oral bacteria. Good oral health practices like brushing and flossing will help keep the harmful bacteria away. Problems may arise due to poor oral hygiene. When the bacteria combine with sugar in food and form acids, they may lead to tooth decay, cavities, and gum infections. If the diseases are not addressed on time, they can spread throughout the body, causing numerous health problems. Regular exams of all family members will help quickly identify the dental issues and prevent them from progressing further.
Family Dental Service at Our Office
Twice yearly dental exams will help identify oral problems in their initial stages and treat them promptly. If necessary, we will take X-rays to confirm our diagnosis and provide the appropriate care.
Gum disease results from the harmful bacteria present in the plaque and tartar deposits that build up around the teeth and beneath the gum line. If this condition is allowed to progress, it can lead to tooth loss and other health disorders. Teeth cleanings will remove the plaque and tartar deposits from your teeth and gums. We perform scaling and root planing procedures to thoroughly clean out the food debris and bacteria and polish the teeth.
Tooth Repair and Cavity Fillings
We offer tooth-colored fillings to conceal the damaged teeth affected by decay, cracks, and fractures.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that will help strengthen the teeth and prevent cavity formations.
Sealants, when applied on the chewing surfaces of the back molars, prevent the accumulation of harmful bacteria. They safeguard the teeth against cavities.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer does not show symptoms until it is in an advanced stage. Regular oral cancer screenings will help in the early diagnosis and possible cure.
