While dental decay and gum disease are the two most common conditions affecting dental health, they are also the most preventable. Here at Riverside Dental we place an emphasis on detecting and treating oral health problems at their onset and preventing small problems from cascading into big ones. Routine at-home care and biannual checkups and cleanings from your Watertown dentist are supremely important when it comes to keeping teeth plaque-free avoiding dental decay.
Cavities are a result of the accumulation of plaque on your teeth. Plaque harbors harmful bacteria that slowly erode the enamel of your teeth. Combating plaque is the single most effective way to prevent cavities from forming. When you visit Dr. Groh and Dr. Meade for a checkup our dental team can employ the most advanced dental technology to detect tooth decay in its earliest stages, giving you the best chance to avoid more time in the dentist’s chair. Every comprehensive examination is accompanied by a thorough cleaning
At every checkup visit to your Watertown dentist, our 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.
We also offer a comprehensive selection of dental services to help prevent and detect the earliest signs of dental disease. Even if you develop a cavity, your tooth can usually be restored to full function. Our office provides an expansive range of advanced general, family and cosmetic services, and our team has helped many patients benefit from the best that modern dentistry has to offer.
