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.
