Some people have good dental genetics and have very few problems with their teeth. Others may have genetic issues that cause weak enamel, insufficient saliva production or other issues that can weaken the oral cavity’s natural defenses against bacteria. No matter what type of dental history you have, it’s important to see a dentist on a regular basis. Even people who have never had a cavity should have their teeth cleaned and checked periodically. Here’s why everyone needs to receive general dentistry services on a regular basis:
Your dentist in Brandon, FL, provides much more than corrective services for dental issues. In fact, the most important services we offer at Dr. John M. Cherry, Jr.’s practice are those designed to prevent oral issues from happening in the first place. Receiving a checkup and thorough cleaning twice per year can help you keep your teeth clean and prevent the buildup of tartar. Your dentist may also find signs of problems during your checkups that would otherwise go undetected. Catching dental issues early is always preferred over discovering them after they become more severe.
If you have cosmetic flaws on your teeth, your dentist can treat them and provide you with a more beautiful smile. A few of the cosmetic options we offer at our practice include porcelain veneers, teeth whitening and entire smile makeovers that use a combination of procedures to improve your teeth.
Dr. Cherry frequently replaces missing teeth with dental implants and implant supported dentures. These treatment options provide very natural-looking results and restore full dental function. They are also permanent, which means they should last the rest of your life as long as you take good care of your oral health.
