At Gooding Dental Health, we believe the key to treating dental disease is prevention. We offer a variety of services for children and adults that target treating oral health problems before they begin.
A key factor to preventing the progression of disease is understanding the causes that can lead to and exacerbate disease. Our team is dedicated to educating our patients on how their daily practices and habits can ensure a long lasting and healthy smile and we encourage you to explore the Patient Education section of our website to learn more!
For patients and children who suffer from a high decay rate, we offer fluoride treatments and varnishes to strengthen enamel. We also offer prescription toothpastes and mouth rinses to patients who may benefit from long term use of increased fluoride. Similarly, patients that experience heavy plaque or calculus may benefit from prescription toothpastes or mouth rinses that promote healthy gums. These oral aids will work in combination with proper brushing and flossing techniques to help you keep your mouth clean and healthy.
For our younger patients, our doctors and hygienists can apply sealants to adult molars to protect surfaces that are prone to decay. Bringing children in for regular dental visits can help us track eruption of permanent teeth and ensure they can be protected before any cavities develop. Regular dental visits for your child will also allow us to teach proper oral hygiene techniques at a young age.
