Help Prevent the Dangers of Tooth Decay

It happens to most of us at one time or another: a tooth cavity. These days, cavities are more prevalent than ever, affecting 82 percent of U.S. adults by the time they’re 34. In fact, tooth decay -- the condition that causes cavities -- is the single most chronic childhood disease in the nation. Realities like these underscore the importance of patient education and regular checkups for preventing tooth decay. At Dentistry at Hagerstown, we are experienced and trained in all aspects of oral health, providing treatment as well as information on the best ways for you to maintain healthy teeth and gums at any age. 

For best results, the American Dental Association encourages patients to visit their dentist at least twice a year for routine checkups and professional teeth cleanings. Monitoring the teeth, gums, and jaws enables your dentist to not only prevent but to spot dental conditions in their earliest stages when they are most treatable. The accumulation of plaque is responsible for dental decay that can lead to extensive damage if left untreated. That’s why regular visits to our office are needed over and above your at-home oral care routine. We’ll provide you with professional cleanings to remove any hardened plaque you may have missed and give you the tools you need to brush and floss correctly. For children visiting us for preventive care, we provide fluoride treatments as well as dental sealants, each safe and effective measures for shielding and strengthening teeth against acid erosion.
