The general dentist you know is most likely your primary care dental provider.
If you live in South Weymouth, MA, or any of the surrounding South Shore communities, that general dentist could be Beyond Dental Health. Our office is here to create a dental home for our patients where they can receive oral healthcare services and treatment that will keep their smiles bright for years to come.
A general dentist trains to improve the oral health of patients, works to limit future oral health issues with preventative care, and strives to provide every patient with an amazing smile. That focus on personalized care is the reason Beyond Dental Health goes above and beyond the standard dental services that many other practices are able to offer.
Good oral health is an important aspect of an individual’s overall health. It is the reason we work with our patients to achieve the best results with a preventative care plan that stresses consistent oral hygiene at home that is supported by regular visits to our office for check-ups, X-rays, and cleanings.
The result will be great oral health and a smile that will last for years to come. Let our general dentist and the rest of the team here at Beyond Dental Health get you on the right path with these services.
It is no secret what helps keep a patient’s teeth healthy: regular brushing twice a day and flossing, the daily use of an antiseptic mouthwash, and regular check-ups and cleanings. We encourage our patients to follow these steps because it will keep their teeth, gums, and mouths healthy and free of future problems.
Patients should have two check-ups and two cleanings a year to maintain optimal oral health. Yearly X-rays will help our team identify issues that can’t be seen during check-ups and cleanings.
X-Rays Provide a Better Look
One of the ways we are able to monitor your future dental health is with a series of X-rays. Each X-ray gives our team a more detailed look “under the hood” and allows us to view the bone structure of a patient’s jaw, the root structure of the teeth, and many other things that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
We use a new digital X-ray system that makes an exam safer for you and provides us with faster and more detailed images of your teeth that can be immediately examined, which provides for faster and more accurate diagnosis.
Stay Current With Your Cleanings
It’s amazing how effective dental cleanings can be for slowing gum disease and maintaining a bright, white smile. Our hygienist will start by conducting a thorough examination of the patient’s teeth,including a check of the health of the gums.
When the hygienist has finished with the scaler, the patient’s teeth will be flossed and then will be polished. Before you are finished, the hygienist will also check your teeth, gums, and mouth for other serious dental conditions, including any evidence of oral cancer.
Try A Fluoride Supplement
Teeth can use a helping hand and a fluoride treatment may be what is needed. Fluoride is a mineral that is found in water that naturally strengthens teeth, which in turn prevents cavities. Fluoride has been added to public water systems for decades to help fight tooth decay.
Protect your smile by asking for a fluoride treatment. It will harden the enamel on your teeth and keep your smile looking bright.
