Keep Your Smile Healthy With Swedesboro, NJ General Dentistry

In some ways, caring for your teeth isn’t that different from caring for your car. In both cases, regular preventive maintenance keeps everything in good working order and helps you avoid costly repairs. That is why general dentistry is so important at our Swedesboro, NJ dental office.

Doctor Elizabeth Kilpatrick Fox on general dentistry

Our general dental care will:

  • Give you a smile that looks and feels healthy
  • Remove bacteria and plaque that causes dental decay and gum disease
  • Keep your teeth healthy between visits with preventive care such as applications of fluoride
  • Help you learn how to better care for your teeth at home
  • Allow Dr. Fox to look for signs of trouble such as orthodontic issues or teeth damaged by grinding

Are you due for a cleaning or other general dental service? Call Elizabeth Kilpatrick-Fox, DMD at 856-997-2767.

Prevent Dental Problems Before They Start

Healthy teeth start with a thorough exam and cleaning. Once your teeth are clean, Dr. Fox may recommend other preventive dental care to keep them in top shape between your regular checkups. For example, fluoride not only helps prevent decay but can also reverse it in its earliest stages. Dental sealants provide an additional barrier against decay, especially in tough-to-clean areas like back teeth.

If she sees signs of bruxism (teeth grinding), Dr. Fox may suggest a custom mouthguard to stop the damaging habit. She can also fit you or your child for a mouthguard to protect teeth during sports or other athletic activities.

If your gums show signs of disease, you’ll need gum disease treatment. Dr. Fox, who was an associate professor in the periodontal department of Temple University’s School of Dentistry, focuses not just on removing disease but helping to prevent it with treatments such as custom night guards that stop the damaging teeth grinding habit that may contribute to gum disease.
