preventing cavitiesThe Woodlands and Houston, TX

Woodlands Premier Dentistry offers advanced cosmetic solutions for men and women living in and around The Woodlands and Houston, Texas. However, at the core of any attractive smile is healthy teeth, and preventing cavities is one of the best ways to keep teeth healthy for a lifetime.

Cavity prevention starts at home with a thorough dental hygiene routine. Brushing should be done after every meal and snack. Flossing should be done at least once a day. Woodlands dentist Dr. Scott Young and our experienced hygienists would be happy to discuss which type of toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss will best meet your specific needs.

Biannual Examinations

Cavity prevention starts at home but it doesn’t end there. To guard against cavities and promptly treat any that occur, you need to visit our office for professional cleanings and examinations. Visits every six months are standard, but the frequency of your visits will be dependent on your specific needs.

During your visits we will thoroughly clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar that may be impossible to take care of at home. We will also examine your teeth and gums to detect issues such as cavities and gum disease, and provide swift and effective treatment if problems are found.
