Checkups and Cleanings
According to the American Dental Association, children and adults should undergo a routine checkup and cleaning once every six months. During a checkup, your Columbia, TN family dentist will watch for any signs of developing dental issues, such as decay or misalignment. If Dr. Foster discovers any signs of dental problems, he can recommend the appropriate treatment. Early detection increases the chances of full recovery and reduces the necessity for invasive and costly procedures down the road. With a cleaning, our dental hygienists will polish your teeth and remove the layers of plaque buildup from your smile. Plaque irritates the gums, causing inflammation that may lead to gum disease. A simple cleaning helps your smile stay bright and free of periodontal disease.
Your Columbia, TN family dentist also offers innovative children’s dentistry. Dr. Foster strives to educate your little ones on the best methods of maintaining healthy smiles. In order to help prevent tooth decay, Dr. Foster offers dental sealants. Thin layers of special plastic material is applied to the molars in the back of the mouth. This keeps food from adhering to the surface of the teeth or becoming stuck between them, preventing the onset of tooth decay.
