Creating Beautiful Smiles

Tooth Decay Prevention

Healthy teeth are a vital part of a healthy body, and just as we work hard to prevent other health concerns with a healthy lifestyle, we should also be working to prevent dental concerns such as tooth decay. Tooth decay is at the root of all dental issues, and by working to prevent it, you are setting yourself up for a healthy and happy smile. Tooth decay occurs when acid is present in the mouth. This acid provides bacteria and plaque with a suitable environment to grow, leading to future dental issues. At IE Dental, we offer a line of tooth decay prevention products that alter the acidity levels in the mouth and make it impossible for bacteria and plaque to develop and grow.

Benefits of Tooth Decay Prevention

More Difficult for Cavities to Form

More Difficult for Cavities to Form

Bacteria like acidic environments, so treatments like ozone and alkaline pastes work to return the mouth to a neutral pH and remineralize the teeth. By changing the environmental conditions in the mouth, cavities have a more difficult time developing.

Less Need for Drilling and Filling

Less Need for Drilling and Filling

Cavities are most commonly removed through the drilling and filling of the tooth. While this is effective in removing the cavity, it is still damaging to the tooth, and it does not affect the underlying cause of the infection. Tooth decay prevention allows your teeth to have a chance to fight off this bacteria before it results in a cavity.

Peace of Mind

Peace of Mind

Dental checkups can often be stressful. The fear of cavities is enough to keep many men and women from attending their bi-yearly checkups. By choosing tooth decay prevention, you are giving yourself peace of mind when you attend your routine dental appointments.

Tooth Decay Prevention Can Help

Healthy Teeth

By using tooth decay prevention techniques on healthy teeth, you can ensure that those teeth stay healthy. These treatments can be performed on both adults and children to keep mouths smiling longer.

Teeth With Previous Fillings

Tooth decay prevention methods are not only beneficial to teeth that have never had cavities, but they can also be applied to teeth with previous fillings. By adding these treatments to your oral health routine, you can feel assured that no additional bacteria will form.

Prevent Other Dental Concerns

In addition to preventing cavities, tooth decay prevention treatments can remedy conditions such as dry mouth, bad breath, and sensitive teeth.

I’m extremely impressed with the comfort, atmosphere, friendliness and professionalism shown here and I truly think more dentists and businesses in general should strive to be like this. I wish I had found them sooner.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my insurance cover this procedure?
No. This is an elective procedure that is not covered by insurance. To find out more about the cost of this procedure, please contact our office.
How does ozone help teeth?
When ozone is applied to your teeth, it not only kills the bacteria that is already present, but it also changes the acidity levels in the mouth, taking away the bacteria’s living environment.
What causes acid-bacteria in the mouth?
Acid wears down tooth enamel and causes decay. This acid often collects due to our diets. Patients with diets that are filled with sugary or acidic foods are more likely to develop plaque and the bacteria that cause cavities.
Is brushing and flossing my teeth enough to prevent tooth decay?
Brushing and flossing are a vital part of cavity prevention. However, brushing and flossing are not always enough. Brushing and flossing do not alter the pH levels in your mouth the way that tooth decay prevention does, which means that bacteria can continue to form and grow.
Do I still need to visit my dentist after tooth decay prevention?
Yes. Routine bi-annual visits with your dentist will always be a necessary part of a healthy mouth. While these treatments will provide a healthy environment in your mouth, there are still many different aspects of dental care that need to be evaluated during your check ups.
