Knowing Your Risk For Cavities

Sometimes walking into a dental office can feel like you’re walking into a factory. You feel like a number, and you’re treated like a number. The procedure is always the same, and there’s very little conversation about your life and how it might be affecting your teeth. These types of offices seem to think that dental care is one size fits all, but we know that things couldn’t be further from the truth!

Most people view oral health care as something that just has to be done. There’s very little thought behind it because they’re been doing it every day for their entire lives. It’s easy to get lost in the day to day details of what is happening without thinking about the bigger picture. In truth, every decision you make, from the type of toothbrush you use to the number of sodas you drink in a day, affects your smile.

Understanding the Problem

Here at Precise Dental, we avoid the one size fits all mentality about dental care. When you come in, one of the first things we’ll do is complete a cavity risk assessment. We’ll ask you questions about your oral hygiene habits, what you eat, what you drink, etc. These questions help us determine the types of changes you can make in order to improve your smile’s health. It also gives us an idea of the types of products that will help you gain more health for your smile.

Getting to know our patients and work with them to create better oral health plans is one of our favorite parts of being a dental office. We’d love to get to know you, too! Contact us today to set up an appointment. We can’t wait to meet you soon!
