We recommend that our patients visit our office regularly for routine oral hygiene examinations and cleanings. During these appointments, we do a number of things to ensure you and your loved ones have optimal dental health. We thoroughly clean the teeth and look for problems in the mouth such as decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. One of the most common problems patients experience is decay. Depending on the level of decay, we may recommend a dental filling. Are you familiar with this common treatment? Read on to learn more about fillings.
