170082992Do you ever think to yourself, “I brush my teeth, I try to remember to floss, nothing hurts, so why do I need to see the dentist?” If you do have that thought, don’t worry—you’re not alone. However, you really should see the dentist. Oral healthcare is not a do-it-yourself activity. With family dentistry at Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Carlisle, PA, you can be certain that you are properly caring for your and your family’s oral health and smiles.

Family Dentistry: Preventing Problems, Maintaining Smiles

As your family dentist, Dr. Thomas Neslund focuses on preventing oral health problems before you even notice any symptoms. That’s why we’d like to see you and your family at least twice a year for dental checkups. With regularly scheduled checkups, we can more easily monitor your oral health and be on the lookout for any changes, even the most subtle of changes.

At these checkups, our dental hygienists will clean your teeth, gently remove any visible plaque, examine your gums, and check for tooth decay. Sometimes, dental x-rays may be necessary to pinpoint spots of decay that are invisible to the naked eye. If we do find a cavity, then Dr. Neslund fills it with a tooth-colored composite resin to maintain the natural appearance of your smile.

Family Dentistry for Kids, Too

Starting at around three years old, children should start coming to see Dr. Neslund at Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. With an early start, your children will become accustomed to regular dental checkups and will be more likely to continue this good habit. While your children still have their baby teeth, we will examine their teeth and gums, gently clean their teeth and possibly take x-rays. And we may apply a fluoride treatment to protect their teeth from cavities. Once their permanent teeth erupt, we’ll apply dental sealants to your children’s deeply grooved molars an added layer of protection against cavities.
