Other preventative dentistry treatments from Amherst Dentistry include fluoride, oral cancer screenings, dental sealants, and x-rays. Fluoride treatments fight cavities and tooth decay and give you extra protection than toothpaste. Fluoride treatments are a typical part of most dental cleanings. An oral cancer screening is also usually included as part of a regular dental visit. Our dentist will check for signs of cancer in your mouth. A regular oral cancer screening can help save lives.
Cavities form as a result of bacteria that eat away at unclean teeth. One of the areas where bacteria likes to gather is in the back teeth. Dental sealants can help prevent bacteria from growing here by acting as a protective sealant over the surface of your back teeth. Dental sealants are made of plastic and are not painful to have in your teeth. They provide many benefits for patients trying to fight back plaque.
Amherst Dentistry will also provide x-rays to allow our dentists to see things we otherwise wouldn’t be able to find with our own eyes. X-rays can spot tooth decay, growths and tumors, gum disease, and other dangerous issues.
