There will never come a time when you don’t need to take care of your teeth and gums. For most, oral health problems develop simply because they do not receive regular preventive care in the form of checkups and cleanings. For the people of Venice, Tarpon Shores Dental can provide the gentle care you need to keep problems like tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease at bay. Dr. Thompson has decades of experience performing these services and considers them to be two of the most important and effective treatments he provides every day.
He, as well as the American Dental Association, recommends that patients should come in for a checkup and cleaning at least every six months. That way, he can catch/treat issues while they are small and help you avoid many of them in the first place. Contact us today to schedule your next appointment!
As part of your checkup, our team will use advanced technology to help us detect even the smallest signs of decay. By finding and treating decay as quickly as possible, we’re able to help patients preserve more of their natural teeth over time. We will also use low-dose digital X-rays to catch problems that are hidden beneath the surface of your teeth and gums.
Once your exam is over, Dr. Thompson will discuss his observations with you as well as any additional treatments you might need. You’ll have the chance to ask as many questions as you like, and then, depending on your schedule, he can begin treatment that same day or escort you to the front desk so you can schedule a follow-up appointment.
