At Hillcrest Dental Arts we place an emphasis on the prevention of dental disease and the early detection and treatment of oral health problems. By catching things at their onset, we can often prevent small problems from cascading into big ones. That’s especially important for dental decay and gum disease – these are two of the most common dental health conditions but are also the most preventable!
Routine at-home care and biannual checkups and cleanings from your Hillcrest dentist are supremely important when it comes to keeping teeth plaque-free avoiding dental decay. Cavities are a result of the acids produced by harmful bacteria that slowly erode the enamel of your teeth. Combating plaque, which harbors these bacteria, is the single most effective way to prevent cavities, so when you visit Dr. Marsh and her team for a checkup we employ the most advanced methods to avoid the onset of decay.
At every checkup visit our Hillcrest dentist team will carefully evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw for any sign of dental disease or developing problems. And of course, every exam is accompanied by a thorough, professional teeth cleaning to remove any accumulated dental plaque or tartar, and to reach the crevices between your teeth that brushing and flossing alone can’t reach. Even if you develop a cavity, we can restore the health, appearance and function of your tooth so that it can serve you well for many years to come.
Our friendly staff will ensure you feel comfortable as soon as you step in the door. We know that many people may feel anxious about coming to the dentist, so our goal is to make your visit as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible. We view it as our mission to educate our patients about all their oral health care options and to help guide them to choose a treatment plan that is most suitable and appropriate for their needs.
