Everyone Needs A Dentist They Can Trust

Welcome back to the Gentle Dental Care blog!

We are excited to serve the families of Plainville, CT by providing comprehensive oral healthcare for all stages of life.

Whatever your background may be, our goal is to give you a radiant smile and keep it that way moving forward.

In order for us to achieve that goal, you must do your part at home and also come in to visit us at our office on East Street at least every 6 months so that we can keep things in tip top shape.

Life Happens Fast

Especially now that summer is over, life is busy in Connecticut.

In all likelihood, the last thing you want to do is spend your free time with doctors and dentists.

But, if you don’t do that on a regular basis, there could be negative consequences for your health.

Brushing your teeth and flossing are all well in good.

In fact, they are an essential component of your daily hygiene ritual.

But they are still not enough to keep you in optimal health for very long.

That’s why avoiding the dentist is never a good idea.

Everyone should have a dentist that they are comfortable with and that they can trust.

Gentle Dental Care Can Build On What You Do At Home

Our Plainville, CT dentistry team has advanced oral health training.

What’s more, we’ve had experience with all sorts of patients and just about every dental situation imaginable.

Plus, we have all the wonderful new dental technology that can be put to use in your service.

It is our job to recognize potential threats to your health before you would be able to notice them on your own.

We are good at catching small problems before they evolve into major–and costly–concerns.

This means that you can usually opt for conservative, relatively pain-free methods to quickly get back on the good road.

Cavities Can Take Over When You Aren’t Looking

At Gentle Dental Care, we are never happy about cavities.

No dentist would be.

But we know that they are likely to pop up at some point for most Americans.

And they aren’t a big concern when caught and treated early enough.

It is possible that cavities are so widespread today because of all the sugars contained in the modern food supply.

Sugar doesn’t actually cause cavities.

However, it does feed the bacteria that causes tooth decay.

We Know Just What To Do About Decay

One way that the team here at Gentle Dental Care can help you fight the spread of the decay-causing bacteria is by professionally cleaning your teeth.

With our tools and know-how, we can attack the plaque and tartar from all the spaces in your mouth that are hard to get at through brushing and flossing alone.

And during your six month exams, we will be able to detect signs of cavities while they are still in their early stages, before treatment becomes more difficult.

Trust us, you won’t want to wait until the decay breaks through your enamel into the soft pulp of your tooth.

The root canal we will have to perform will not be fun.

But that might not be the worst of it.

Cavities can actually get to the point where they are too severe to save your tooth.

Extraction may be your only option then, followed by an implant or some other type of artificial replacement.

That’s why it is always better to let us make sure that things stay on track.

Gentle Dental Care Is A Practice You Can Trust

Besides cavities, we can prevent, or at least detect, other issues such as gum disease, and even oral cancer.

Your oral health is too important to neglect.

Let us help you maintain a radiant smile.
