Preventive Dental Services: How to Keep Your Teeth Strong, Healthy, and Beautiful
Our doctors and staff carefully evaluate the overall health of your teeth and gums, identify tooth decay or other areas of concern and identify alignment or bite problems that may need to be addressed. Sealants or fluoride treatments (through age 16) are often used to protect against cavities. We will also talk with you about any recommendations we have about how to maintain strong and healthy teeth at home.
Periodontal Exams for Waukesha County
Periodontal disease, commonly referred to as gum disease, is the number one reason for tooth loss. It’s also connected to numerous chronic illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, premature births, stroke, and osteoarthritis.
