What is Preventative Dentistry Treatment?

Brushing Teeth - Preventative DentistryWith regular preventative care, potential problems can be detected early; in turn, treatment becomes less invasive. The main two causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease; through preventative care, you can keep your smile healthy.

Plaque is caused by a bacteria; it doesn’t take long for it to build up, settle over your teeth, and harden into tartar. This build up quickly develops into cavities, gum diseases, and other oral health issues and conditions. Regular cleanings help keep this build up from occurring, while regular exams with our accurate, state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment can quickly detect any developing issues.

During preventative exams, your dentist will watch for warning signs like tooth decay, changes in your gums, damage to previous work, and any underlying problems. Our team employs a proactive approach, addressing all potential problems before they worsen and spiral out of control.

Additional Benefits of Preventative Dental Care

Even clients without natural teeth can benefit from preventative dentistry, as certain conditions like mouth cancer and denture stomatitis can easily be detected during your regular dental clinic visits here at Tiger Smile Family Dentistry.

Ensuring good dental health can also help reduce the risks of secondary problems caused by poor oral health such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Respiratory disease

Our team of dentists in Baton Rouge will inspect your teeth and clean them. We will thoroughly remove everything from plaque to tartar. Our dentists actively engage their patients, guiding them in proper dental hygiene when at home such as the proper method of brushing, when to replace a toothbrush, and what foods to avoid for decay prevention. Our team will also recommend dental care products pending your condition and discuss diet and we also have emergency dental care services in Baton Rouge in case you need urgent attention.

Each of our dentists want to keep your mouth healthy and happy; we are dedicated to your oral health. Our time-tested systematic methods provide preventative care to encourage oral health and allow for early detection of disease or decay.

Dental Fillings

Are cavities causing a painful experience? Perhaps your old silver fillings are no longer up to snuff? Let the Tiger Smile Family Dentistry team help! Our team of dentists will clean out any decay and remaining bacteria before filling the crevice with a material called composite. We also offer removal of old silver fillings.

There are many types of fillings, thanks to modern dentistry— people have a wide array of options to choose from such as plastic, silver amalgam, tooth-colored fillings, and composite fillings. At Tiger Smile Family Dentistry, we take the time to sit down with our patients and discuss the right procedure for their needs . Our dentists consider the extent of the repair and your dental history. They will then discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the different fillings and help you decide which is best. However, knowing what’s available can help you know what to expect.

Cast Gold Fillings last 10-15+ years. They do not corrode, and they withstand the force of chewing. They can be more aesthetically pleasing than silver, but they also come with a higher price tag.

Silver Fillings offer the same benefits as gold but require a large space to be applied. This means they can lead to destroyed tooth structure.

Tooth-Colored, Metal-Free Fillings blend to match your natural teeth. They are versatile with no space requirements. However, they are vulnerable to cracking as they are not as durable as gold or silver.
Filled teeth are just as strong as natural teeth, and tooth-colored filling allows the dental work to blend with the rest of your smile. You can chat, laugh, and smile without worrying whether someone notices your fillings.

During the course of your visits, our dentists will also help you determine steps to take at home for proper oral care.

About Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge is a smashing place to visit with its rich history, beauty, and the quirky side of Louisiana’s Red Stick. If you’re in the area, heading to the Old State Capitol should be on the list of the places that you should visit. Visit the Bluebonnet Swamp as well and make sure to BYO blanket and what-not, this is the perfect place to chill.

Since gambling is legal here, head on over to the two riverboat casinos in the city. The 226-year-old plantation house should not be missed as well and see beautiful birds.
