Preventive care focuses on practices that help patients avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear and enamel loss, tooth loss and other dental problems. These practices include brushing, flossing and regular trips to the dentist.
Leisure Dental offers pediatric dentistry, which is a branch of dental care specially designed for children, from infancy through teen years. Pediatric dentistry focuses on addressing the special dental problems kids face – such as cavities – and help prepare their young patients for a lifetime of good oral health and great smiles.
Dental emergencies can happen, and often do when you least expect them. You can crack a tooth by biting into a sandwich, for example, or you can lose a filling right before giving an important speech.
Emergency visits are necessary for dental problems that are painful, cause swelling or fever, involve a broken, missing or cracked tooth, or that cause bleeding in the tongue or lips.
Cavities & Fillings
Cavities are decayed areas of a tooth that develop into holes. Left untreated, cavities can cause significant tooth damage and even tooth loss. Fillings are a type of dental treatment that stops cavities from worsening.
