Protecting Fort Worth Smiles with Preventive Dentistry
Every aspect of dental care is important, but prevention is truly at the heart of our Fort Worth dental practice. After all, Dr. Gonzalez and his team would prefer to protect your teeth from possible decay and damage rather than treat issues after they’ve already caused you discomfort. That’s why we provide in-depth evaluations and cleanings, as well as several other preventive services designed to catch problems at the earliest stage possible and prevent them before they begin. Your safety and satisfaction are always top priorities here at West 7th Smiles.
Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) affects countless American adults today, many of whom aren’t even aware of its presence. While the symptoms associated with this dangerous condition may start off relatively mild, they can quickly worsen and lead to bone deterioration and tooth loss; studies have even shown that it may be associated with many serious systemic health risks, such as diabetes and strokes. That is why catching periodontal disease at the earliest possible stage is a critical goal for our team. If we do discover tell-tale signs, we offer several comprehensive therapy options, including deep cleanings and non-surgical intervention.
Do you suffer from constant facial pain, daily stress, or teeth that feel and look worn down? You may be suffering from bruxism, also known as teeth grinding. Many patients can’t successfully break this habit on their own, due to the fact that it occurs while they’re asleep – thankfully, that’s where Dr. Gonzalez comes in. Here at West 7th Smiles, we can create a customized, comfortable nightguard for you that can be worn while asleep, protecting your teeth from damage.
Additional preventive services available at our Fort Worth practice include:
- Dental Sealants
- Oral Cancer Screenings
