Dentist in Abbeville
The best way to keep your teeth and gums healthy is with preventive dental care. At our dental practice, Adrian M Simm, D.D.S., our expert dentist in Abbeville
, Dr. Adrian Michael Simm, can provide you with complete implant and cosmetic dentistry services, as well as with excellent preventive dental care.
It is very important that people keep their teeth clean with regular at-home tooth brushing and flossing. However, it is also important that you come to our dental practice to see our dentist in Abbeville for biannual dental exams and dental cleanings. Or, if you are experiencing tooth pain, you should come in as soon as a problem seems to be developing. Our dentist will thoroughly assess the health of your entire mouth during our dental exams, as well as screen your mouth for any signs of oral cancer, and examine your gums to make sure you are not developing gum disease. Preventive dental care can be instrumental in making sure that your gums remain healthy. If our dentist finds that you have developed gingivitis, a common precursor to gum disease, it will most likely be recommended that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. If it is found that deep pockets have formed between the teeth and gums, you will probably need to have a scaling and root planing treatment, which is also referred to as a deep cleaning for the gums. This will remove all plaque, tartar, bacteria, and food debris from the deep pockets, and will help the deep pockets to heal. This will keep the gum disease from advancing further. Other types of preventive dental care include fluoride treatments to strengthen your tooth enamel. And, for children, we offer dental sealants. Dental sealants are actually painted onto the child’s back molars, and will physically protect the teeth from cavity-causing materials.
