The best method of dental treatment is to catch any potential danger before it becomes a problem. Preventive dentistry emphasizes the importance of ongoing hygiene procedures and daily practices to prevent tooth decay and other dental diseases and conditions. Effective preventive dentistry combines at-home oral care by patients with chairside treatments and counseling by dental professionals.For example, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends a minimum of two dental checkups each year for professional cleaning and management of any developing conditions. Adhering to this recommendation can help your dentist stop dental disease in its earliest stages, protecting your smile and limiting your expense.
Getting regular dental visits and exams will help prevent most dental issues. Routine X-rays and cleanings keep your dentist informed about the state of your oral health. This allows them to provide you with vital, personalized advice to improve your hygiene and keep your teeth healthy.

Restorative dentistry centers around bringing the mouth back to full functionality. Even if the proper preventative measures have been taken it is possible that restoration still may need to take place. Unavoidable causes, like accidents and genetics, may put a patient at a higher risk of needing restorative procedures at some time in his or her life. For our team at Ladd Dental Group to best treat our patients it is important to know what may be causing the issue at hand. We use an all-encompassing approach to determine what may be going on. When a patient comes to Ladd Dental Group we never see just their teeth. We see the whole person. Their upbringing, experiences, and life choices have lead them to where their teeth are today. This is all taken into consideration when treating our patients. Once we have an understanding of the situation we aim to educate our patients on the potential risk factors and benefits of the disease process and treatments. This in turn will help them make the most educated decisions possible. If you have a cracked, loose or missing tooth, we have specialists ready to repair and restore the damaged area.
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just for celebrities. Cosmetic dentistry has indeed managed to infuse both the benefits of general and restorative dentistry with the art of improving a patient’s smile. Recent advancements have also made it possible for a cosmetic dentist in Indiana to perform less invasive cosmetic dentistry procedures. For example, dental implants can be seamlessly incorporated with the rest of the patient’s natural teeth, thereby achieving a more natural-looking smile. With proper advancements not only in technology, but also in pain management, recovery now doesn’t have to take so long, after the cosmetic dental procedure. One can look at modern cosmetic dentistry as the perfect marriage between science and art—not only would one look good after such a procedure, but one’s oral health could greatly benefit from it as well. Now, that is truly something to smile about.Many teeth-enhancing procedures have become affordable and mainstream. Our providers offer a wide selection of services such as teeth whitening, Lumineers application and much more. Get the perfect shining smile you’ve always wanted.
