Supplement Home Oral Hygiene With Our General Dental Care
For the best results, we suggest visiting our office for a checkup and professional cleaning at least two times a year. We use special methods to remove plaque and bacteria from spots that are easy to miss at home. We also use dental technology like laser cavity detectors to find potential problems in their earliest stages. Treating them ASAP saves you time and money!
In addition to cleanings and exams, we may recommend:
- Dry Mouth Treatment – Saliva offers natural protection against cavities. If you suffer from dry mouth, we’ll help you identify the underlying causes. We’ll also provide products to make your mouth feel better again while making you less susceptible to cavities.
- Halitosis Treatment – As with dry mouth, we’ll help find the underlying causes so we can suggest the right products to fight your bad breath.
- LANAP Gum Disease Treatment – Dr. Kelvin White is the only general dentist in Western Kentucky who is certified to offer this minimally invasive laser-assisted treatment for gum disease.
- Fluoride Treatments – Applications of fluoride strengthen your tooth enamel to make it more resistant to decay.
- Dental Sealants – These thin layers of plastic create a physical barrier that stops cavity-causing bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves on the top surfaces of your teeth.
- Advanced Anti-Cavity Protection – In addition to fluoride and/or sealants, we may suggest prescription-strength toothpaste or other topical products for patients who are especially prone to cavities.
