Professional teeth cleaning every six months will help maintain the health of your teeth and gums. We will educate you on the best dental practices to care for your oral health.
- Fillings and Restorations
Fillings can restore a damaged tooth caused by decay, wear or fracture. Restorative crowns can also restore a tooth depending on the amount of tooth decay and healty tooth structure remaing. Dr. Robichaux will advise you if a crown is right for your tooth. Bridges and dental implants are good options for replacing missing teeth.
Dental emergencies can include a chipped or knocked-out tooth, bleeding gums, toothache, or facial trauma. Seeking timely care can help ensure the best possible outcomes and avoid permanent damage and more extensive treatments.
It is recommended that a child start seeing the dentist before their first birthday, or within 6 months of getting their first tooth. Seeing children early is important to educate mom and child about the correct hygiene routine and diet, as well as acclimating the child to the dental office atmosphere.
Baby teeth are more prone to tooth decay and cavities due to their high sugar consumption. Hence they need regular check-ups and cleanings. Preventive measures like dental sealant and fluoride applications will help avert chronic dental issues.
