Wilmington Dentist Protects and Preserves Your Smile
Why is your oral health so important? Studies have shown a strong connection between the condition of your mouth and your wellbeing. Prevention is the foundation of general dentistry, and Dr. Mazoch knows that keeping teeth and gums strong is key to a longer, healthier life.
Most adults should visit our Wilmington general dentistry practice once every six months. This allows Dr. Mazoch to catch problems early. Dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, and nighttime teeth grinding don’t fix themselves and generally become worse over time. When diagnosed promptly, we are able to offer conservative general dentistry treatment that preserves your natural teeth and saves you from more costly dental procedures.
General Dentistry in Wilmington for the Whole Family
Dr. Mazoch welcomes patients ages three and up to her family general dentistry practice. It’s our goal to help you avoid unnecessary dental discomfort through preventive care. Our children’s dentistry program helps your little one develop good habits from a young age. Through checkups, professional cleanings, and preventive measures such as fluoride supplements and sealants, Dr. Mazoch can help you keep your smile healthy for a lifetime.
When you visit us for a general dentistry appointment, we’ll provide you with:
- Tooth-by-tooth inspection
- Oral screening
- Full set of digital x-rays
- Check for signs of grinding
- TMJ assessment
- Professional hygiene
- Periodontal therapy
The Consequences of Gum Disease
Many patients think that brushing and flossing are enough to keep gum disease at bay. However, nothing can replace the power of hygiene provided by a thorough general dentistry professional. Even patients who follow brushing and flossing recommendations to the letter can still be at risk. Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss for adults over the age of 35. But that’s not all. With links to heart disease, stroke, diabetic and pregnancy complications, periodontal infection shouldn’t be taken lightly. As a general dentist, Dr. Mazoch provides periodontal therapy to stop infection and restore health.
Keeping Teeth and Gums Fit Through Nutrition
Did you know that what you eat has an impact on the health of your smile? It’s true from the inside out. Choosing a healthy diet strengthens your whole body, including your teeth. Our general dentistry practice recommend patients eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and three servings of dairy each day to maximize calcium and other important nutrients. Make sure to limit sugary snacks and drinks, like soda and candy, which can quickly lead to decay.
