If you wish to maintain a top-notch oral health, then it’s best to take advantage of preventive dental treatments as much as possible! Some preventive dental treatments in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, that can help you achieve your smile goals include:

Dental cleanings: Dental cleanings are vital for a strong and successful oral health because the treatment provided is the only treatment that can completely remove the plaque from your smile. Removing the plaque off your teeth every six months will help you prevent tooth decay and gum disease, so make sure to keep up on your appointments.

Dental sealants: Dental sealants are great products that protect your teeth from tooth decay. They are wafer-thin shells that cover the entire surfaces of your teeth and shield them from any harmful particles. This treatment is generally recommended to children who have poor oral hygiene and to adults who do not have any dental fillings.

Dental fluoride treatment: Fluoride treatment is essential for a strong smile because it nourishes and strengthens your teeth so they can fight tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues. We usually provide this treatment when you come in for a dental cleaning and exam, and it typically comes in the form of a gel, foam, or varnish.

If you’re interested in any of these treatments or if you would like to schedule your next dental cleaning and exam, please call Pennyrile Family Dentistry at 270-632-6404 and schedule an appointment with your dentist, Dr. Joseph N. Falco. We are here to help you in any way we can, and we look forward to helping you keep dental issues at bay!
