Preventive Dentistry Schererville, IN
Regular examinations at Crossroads Family Dental are essential to promoting good oral and dental health by detecting problems before they get worse, or preventing them altogether. Below are some of the preventive services that our practice offers.
Cleanings & Exams
Regular examinations, by Dr. Kathy Zuccarelli or Dr. Nicholas Berns help detect and prevent health issues before they become serious. Consistent dental check-ups help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Read more about Cleanings & Exams.
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. The treatment methods that our dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Read more about Gum Disease.
Bruxism (teeth grinding) can cause moderate to severe long-term damage to teeth. Constant grinding wears down the surface of the tooth, exposing the soft dentin beneath the enamel. This is why it's important to protect your teeth while you sleep by wearing a bite guard. Read more about Bite Guards.
Fluoride and Sealants
Applying a fluoride varnish protects a child's primary (first) teeth from decay. Once children have their permanent teeth, dental sealants may be applied for the protection of the back teeth or molars. Read more about Fluoride Treatment and Sealants.
Kid's teeth need dental care, just like grown-up teeth. Regular exams by Dr. Kathy Zuccarelli or Dr. Nicholas Berns can help to identify any abnormalities in your child's oral development, and can minimize the impact of decay on your child's health by catching cavities early.
