Dental decay and gum disease are very common, but they’re almost entirely preventable. At Hildebrand Healthy Smiles, we emphasize preventive dental care. The most effective way to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful throughout your life is with a combination of good oral hygiene practices and regular visits to your Marshall dentist for routine teeth cleanings and examinations. Our practice uses state-of-the-art technology and advanced methods to keep your teeth cavity-free and to detect oral health conditions in their earliest phases, when they’re typically the easiest to treat. Dr. Darlene Hildebrand and her staff strive to keep you comfortable, relaxed and informed each time you come in for a visit, to make dental care a positive and engaging experience.
The leading cause of common oral health conditions, such as tooth decay and gum disease is dental plaque, a sticky biofilm that harbors bacteria that are harmful to your oral health. Combatting the detrimental effects of plaque begins at home with a strong commitment to oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing your teeth and maintaining a diet low in sugary foods helps keep your teeth and gums healthy. It’s also necessary to visit your Marshall dentist office for checkups and a professional teeth cleaning. During a teeth cleaning, your dental professional can remove plaque and tartar that has accumulated in areas that are difficult to reach adequately on your own, and lower your risk for dental disease. While cavities can occur at any age, lifestyle and dietary habits make children most susceptible to tooth decay. To protect your children’s teeth, we offer fluoride treatments and dental sealants, which are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children. For patients of all ages every checkup includes a comprehensive oral examination to assess overall oral health. Whether preventing or managing the effects of dental plaque or providing other advanced services to maintain the health and beauty of your smile, the care and comfort of our patients are out top priorities.
Your Marshall dentist office provides comprehensive dental care for the whole family. At Hildebrand Healthy Smiles, we strive to make your dental checkups a comfortable, stress-free experience. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
