Families in Asheville seek a compassionate dental team for teeth cleanings and examinations

Good oral hygiene habits include scheduling dental check-ups as well as brushing and flossing. Dental check-ups are recommended at least every six months. They should include teeth cleanings and examinations. X-rays may be taken to ensure the health of the jawbone and tooth roots. These habits are critical in preventing the development of cavities and gum disease. Families in Asheville and the surrounding areas can count on compassionate treatment at Asheville Smile Center.

Our dental team will provide customized preventive care plans to meet the unique needs of patients. We are advocates of patient education and believe it is important to understand how tooth decay develops. We have found patients who understand the cause of tooth decay are typically more inclined to maintain their oral health.

Understanding how tooth decay develops

Frequently drinking and snacking on sugary beverages and foods can lead to cavities, which are tiny holes in the tooth enamel. Plaque is clear and sticky substance that contains bacteria that feed on the beverages and foods consumed. The bacteria create acids that attack the teeth, destroying enamel and causing cavities. Left untreated, cavities can affect the interior of the tooth. Symptoms of a decayed tooth include tooth discoloration, tooth sensitivity, a toothache, pain when biting and mild to sharp pain when eating or drinking cold or hot foods or beverages. Not brushing and flossing regularly or seeing the dentist for check-ups can increase the risk of tooth decay.

Combating tooth decay

The first step toward fighting tooth decay is scheduling an appointment with one of our highly skilled dentists. Teeth cleanings and examinations can help prevent tooth decay as well as improve overall health. The dentist will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums, and x-rays may be taken. If he identifies tooth decay, he can form a treatment plan with you. Dental fillings can restore health to a decayed tooth. If the tooth decay is severe, a dental crown can be used to protect and strengthen the tooth. We provide ceramic crowns that blend beautifully with the smile and they can be completed in a single appointment at our office. We provide these same-day restorations through the utilization of CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology.
