At the office of Dr. Cyril Beard, DDS, your Red Bank dentist takes a proactive approach to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Preventive care means controlling the accumulation of dental plaque by establishing an effective regimen of brushing and flossing, as well as making appointments for periodic checkups and dental care. Tooth decay and gum disease, the two most common dental problems, are best dealt with through a program of preventive care and early intervention. We recommend coming in twice a year for a comprehensive examination and professional cleaning to maintain optimal dental health.
Incipient dental decay may or may not present any symptoms in its earliest stages, and many people with cavities don’t realize their dental health is in jeopardy. By performing a thorough clinical examination of your mouth, assisted by diagnostic films as needed, Dr. Beard is able to identify tooth decay in its earliest stages. The recommended course of treatment for a cavity is to remove the damaged and decayed tooth structure, and then restore the tooth with a dental filling. A tooth-colored filling is designed to withstand the force of your bite, restoring the shape and function of your treated tooth while blending seamlessly with your natural teeth. Children are particularly susceptible to cavities, so for our pediatric patients we recommend dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children. Of course the best way to prevent cavities is by regular brushing and flossing and visiting your Red Bank dentist for regular professional dental cleanings and examinations.
