Our dentist in Carrollton believes that it is much better to work to prevent future dental problems now rather than having to restore teeth later. Our practice offers many preventative care services to keep the whole family’s teeth healthy and their smiles bright. Dr. Kirk E. Kooker, DDS believes that our patients are the first line of defense in protecting their own teeth from decay and other dental problems and that together we can prevent future problems and promote healthy teeth.
Our doctor provides many preventative dental services including regular comprehensive examinations and radiographs to evaluate the state of your oral health and diagnose any present or developing problems. Our doctor can recommend treatments that can minimize any impending problems. We provide dental sealants for the permanent molars of our young patients to help keep decay out. Our dentist in Carrollton stresses that the best way to prevent tooth and gum problems caused by decay is to keep the teeth clean. Our office emphasizes that regular teeth cleanings will help rid the teeth of decay causing bacteria from leftover food particles and other debris. A dental cleaning from our hygienist scrapes away plaque and tartar from around and between the teeth and gums. The office cleaning alone is not enough to ward off future problems. Our doctors recognize the extreme importance of routine daily dental care at home. Proper tooth brushing, flossing and use of dental rinses are key to promoting good dental health.
Our dentist in Carrollton not only works with adult patients in promoting good dental care habits but we work with our younger patients to make sure that they develop the best techniques in terms of daily dental care and understand the importance of it. We try to make good dental habits fun for children. Preventative care is essential for keeping both natural and even restored teeth healthy. While preventative care from our office will not prevent every future tooth problem from occurring, it will help stave off most problems and help mitigate the impact of those that do occur. Make an appointment with our office to evaluate the state of your dental health and we’ll develop a preventative program just for you.
