Protect Your Smile With Dr. Milsap
In addition to practicing excellent oral care at home, it’s essential to visit our office for cleanings at least twice a year if you want to maintain a healthy smile. These visits help to reduce your risk of oral health problems while also giving Dr. Milsap a chance to examine your teeth and identify any potential issues.
There’s more to preventive dentistry than just cleaning your teeth. Explore our guide to learn about all the ways we protect your teeth from disease and decay.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I do if a tooth is knocked out?
If you knock out a tooth, it’s crucial that you stay calm and don’t attempt to fix the tooth yourself. Call us right away and bring the tooth to our office as soon as you can. Make sure to handle your tooth by the crown and store it carefully while you wait for treatment.
When are sealants recommended?
Dental sealants are primarily used to protect children and teenagers from developing cavities. They’re typically applied when your permanent teeth start to come in or any time between the ages of 6 and 16. In certain situations, adults may require sealants as well.
What can be done about old, unattractive, or discolored fillings?
If you need to replace a filling, we feature several options that can improve the strength and appearance of your tooth. Depending on your needs, Dr. Milsap can provide you with a composite tooth-colored filling, a dental crown, porcelain veneers, or a customized inlay.
