At Wisconsin Dental Wellness, we focus on preventive dentistry to help our patients avoid common dental health issues. Regular oral exams, teeth cleanings, and fluoride treatments can prevent, halt, and even reverse tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. If you need preventive dentistry in Deforest, Dr. Lau and our team at Wisconsin Dental Wellness would feel honored to help you maintain your smile!
Fluoride treatments are a simple, yet powerful way to prevent the formation of cavities. This natural, organic compound has the unique ability to “remineralize” teeth. During this process, teeth that have been weakened by decay are strengthened and healed. Fluoride also protects teeth and prevents cavities altogether. This treatment consists of a paste or gel that is “painted” onto your teeth, and left to sit for several minutes before being rinsed off. The high concentration of fluoride on your teeth encourages remineralization and can protect teeth for up to six months
Dental sealants prevent the formation of cavities by shielding teeth with a thin film of specialized dental plastic. Sealants are placed directly over teeth at high risk of developing cavities, such as rear molars. This treatment prevents acids and sugars from contacting your enamel, and keeps cavities from forming. Sealants are often used for pediatric patients who are more likely to develop cavities due to sugar intake and improper brushing or flossing habits.
Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry concerned with treating gums. As an expert periodontist, Dr. Lau is highly qualified to help patients prevent and treat gum disease, one of the most common dental health issues in America. Minor cases of gum disease can usually be treated with a deep cleaning and a proper oral care routine, but more serious cases usually require special care. Symptoms of gum disease include bleeding when brushing, constant bad breath, shifting of the teeth, and increased gum sensitivity. Come see Dr. Lau right away if you think you may need periodontal care.
