Protect your teeth with adult’s dentistry in Marrero, LA
Making time for the dentist can be hard when you have got a full schedule. The more time that passes between a trip to the dentist’s office, the more likely it is you will have cavities or other issues. Even if you never had cavities as a child, age will increase your risk of oral health problems. Dr. Do offers full-service adult dentistry in Marrero, LA, including thorough dental exams and oral cancer screening.
Routine cleaning and dental exams
As you age, changes in your body can weaken your body’s natural defenses against gum infections and cavities. Your enamel starts to wear down, and you may produce less saliva or develop medical conditions, like diabetes, that leave you more vulnerable to tooth decay. However, if you stay on top of brushing and flossing and schedule regular trips to the dentist 2-4 times a year, you can treat decay and gum problems as soon as they develop and prevent tooth loss and painful infections.
Dr. Do and his team will thoroughly cleanse your mouth, taking special care to remove plaque and tartar build-up on your teeth and below the gum line. Dr. Do will also take digital x-rays to check for signs of tooth decay or bone loss and measure the depth of pockets in your gums to check for signs of gum disease. He will also screen for early signs of oral cancer, which can be deadly if it’s not caught early.
Advanced dentistry for adults
If you have a toothache or sensitivity, bleeding gums, or a loose tooth, you need treatment immediately. Dr. Do can exam your teeth and form a treatment plan to bring you relief.
