General Dentistry for Lisle, IL Families
Prevention of dental disease remains an important focus for our practice. At Arbor Dental Care, our goal is to provide everything you need to prevent dental disease and enjoy the benefits of excellent dental health. Early detection of such conditions as gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer is one of the best ways to insure ease and success of treatment.
Dental Checkups & Exams
With this in mind and in keeping with the recommendation of the American Dental Association, Dr. Marchese would like to see you and your family at least twice each year for dental checkups. These regularly scheduled appointments are the key to prevention, because at each visit we not only clean your teeth, we also thoroughly examine your entire oral cavity. With this close-up examination, we can often spot developing problems and recommend an appropriate course of treatment. By taking steps early, we can help you avoid oral health problems that are more serious and almost always more expensive.
Dental Cleaning & Hygiene
After a dental cleaning with one of the skilled hygienists at Arbor Dental Care, your mouth will feel refreshed. More importantly, we can remove surface stains from your teeth, so your smile will be brighter after a professional cleaning, too. In addition to cleaning the surfaces of your teeth, the hygienist will floss in between all of your teeth in order to remove small particles of food and plaque, a sticky film made up of bacteria, mucus and trace amounts of food. Plaque is the precursor to gum disease, so making sure it doesn't linger on or between your teeth is imperative to your oral health.
To help you take care of your teeth and gums in between visits to our office, the dentists at Arbor Dental Care and their staff take the time to answer your questions and show you how to effectively brush and floss your teeth. Needless to say, your daily oral hygiene routine is as critical to maintaining your smile and overall oral health as your regularly scheduled dental checkups.
Most people think dental sealants are only for children. However, for adult patients who are particularly susceptible to tooth decay, family dentists, Drs. Marchese, may recommend these guardians of dental health. Sealants are brushed on the biting surfaces of your molars, where deep pits and grooves often trap food and bacteria that can cause decay. Once quickly dried with a curing light, the liquid plastic becomes a hard shell that blocks bacteria and other toxins from causing decay to develop into a cavity.
If we notice signs of bruxism - teeth grinding - during one of your exams, then Dr. Frank Marchese or Dr. Jeanelle Marchese can prescribe a comfortable nightguard. This oral appliance absorbs the pressure of teeth grinding and clenching, so your teeth do not sustain further damage.
