When it comes to your oral health, preventive dental care is essential. Dental disease is entirely preventable. Proper dental care with Axiom Dentistry Louisburg can help to prevent tooth decay, reduce the need for costly dental procedures, and improve your overall health.
The American Dental Association recommends the following steps to maintain good oral health:
- Brush your teeth two times per day with an ADA-approved fluoride toothpaste
- Replace your toothbrush every three to four months
- Use floss or an interdental cleaner to clean between teeth daily
- Eat a balanced diet and avoid soft drinks
- Visit a dental professional regularly for cleanings and checkups
Regular visits to your dentist can minimize the need for serious dental treatment such as root canals, periodontal treatments, and tooth replacement. Additionally, poor dental hygiene has been linked to serious illnesses such as strokes, heart disease, premature births and Alzheimer’s disease.
Axiom Dentistry of Louisburg offers the following preventive procedures:
An oral exam consists a visual examination by your dental provider and X-rays when necessary. Oral exams are used to address goals and expectations of the patient, identify concerns, and develop a customized treatment plan.
Dental X-rays are a diagnostic tool used to reveal areas of decay and concern that may be hidden to the naked eye. At Axiom Dentistry, we offer digital X-rays which reduce the amount of radiation by more than 80 percent and can be viewed instantly. Digital X-rays provide a better quality image and can be enlarged, cropped, and enhanced for better clarity.
At Axiom Dentistry of Louisburg, we pride ourselves on offering the latest in technology including intraoral cameras. These dental cameras allow you to see exactly what we see. Images are captured by a tiny video camera and displayed on a television monitor. Intraoral cameras allow you to take an active role in your dental treatment by enabling you to better understand your dental conditions.
