Welcome to the Antoine Dental Center blog! Now that you’ve found us online, we hope to see you in our Houston office sometime soon. We think you’ll appreciate all that we can do for you here.
Our preventive dentistry program is aimed at keep you smiling all through your life. Maintaining good oral health really does require a partnership arrangement.
Think about it: some things you must do on your own at home, some things only us professionals can handle, and some things we must work on together.
The primary features of this prevention strategy include: your oral hygiene practices in-between checkups, regular in-office exams, and continuing education.
We can help keep cavities on the run, and if they ever should emerge, we’ll be here to take them away before you are forced to go through root canals and extractions. Trust us, you’ll want to take the easy way out for sure.
You will also want to watch out for gum disease. This is something dangerous that affects countless folks in this country. Gum disease is caused by bacteria that has gotten loose in your mouth.
Initially, it can cause irritation of your gums. There may be some tenderness and bleeding that goes along with it. This is the gingivitis stage, and you may not be alarmed enough by the symptoms to know what is going on.
Our team can detect it before you can, and we can help you effectively reverse the effects of gingivitis. Obviously, we won’t be much help, if you aren’t coming in often enough for us to do our job properly.
Gum disease that turns into full-scale periodontal disease, will wreck your oral health. Your gums will start to pull away from your teeth, even to the point of exposing the roots. Before long, your teeth will begin to drop out. It won’t be pretty.
Scary pockets of infection can form between your teeth, which can spread throughout your mouth, jeopardizing not only your teeth, but also your overall wellness. There seems to be a relationship between gum disease and other (far more) serious medical conditions, including some forms of cancer.
Wouldn’t you rather keep up with scheduling regular cleanings and exams than to have to put your body at risk for bad things?
Keep in mind: our professional teeth cleanings provide you with another layer of protection against periodontal disease, and our in-depth dental examinations will allow us to identify it, if it ever appears, while it is still in the earliest stages and can be most effectively treated. It is for your own good. Plus, cavities and disease are only some of the problems you may encounter along the way. You wouldn’t want to abandon your oral health for long.
That’s why you should make Antoine Dental Center a part of your plan. All you have to do is arrange to come see us every 3-6 months, and we’ll help keep you on-track.
