Cavity Prevention

What is Cavity Prevention?

Cavity prevention involves reducing or even eliminating the chance of decay affecting a specific tooth. Cavity prevention is ideal for both adults and children. It can be beneficial in preventing the need for more invasive procedures that are needed due to decay. When decay is present, fillings, root canals and even extractions may be required.

    Dr Dixon and his staff have always been so thoughtful and conscientious with our children. He has always been available to us when there’s been an emergency. I appreciate that he is supportive of our choices as parents to be cautious as times, and having a “let’s monitor it and see” approach at other times.

    I was referred to Dr.Dixon, here at Peak Pediatric from our Orthodontist. I’m so happy they were able to quickly fit all 3 of my children in for a cleaning. The staff took their time to show all of us around and get to know us before starting any x-rays. Staff and Dr.Dixon are so

What makes you a good candidate for Cavity Prevention?

Most patients who feel they will benefit from cavity prevention methods are viable candidates for the procedures available. Some of the most common types of preventative measures include sealants, fluoride treatments, product recommendations and oral hygiene technique demonstrations. We can help with cavity prevention concerning the entire family. We are here to help you maintain a healthy and happy smile that you can trust for life.

What happens during the procedure for Cavity Prevention?

Because there are a variety of preventative options available, the specific type of procedure being done is specific to each option. It is important to have a consultation and examination prior to choosing a preventative treatment. If sealants are utilized, a clear liquid is brushed and cured onto the teeth to form a protective layer. For fluoride treatment, the liquid is brushed onto the teeth to help protect the enamel and strengthen the inner dentin. We can help you to find the treatment that is best for you. We are able to provide cavity prevention geared for the whole family. If you are interested in cavity prevention either for yourself or a family member, contact our office today so that we can better assist you with this option.
