Explore Preventative Treatment Plans From Eagle River Kids Dentists, Anchorage, Alaska

Dentistry is often a term that causes patients to conjure thoughts of costly visits and discomfort. However, the dentists at Discovery Dental, located in Eagle River, Alaska, are looking to change the way people think about their dental care. They’ve implemented individual and family treatment plans for their patients, which can help reduce costs and build a relationship of trust.

In order to create a dental plan, you'll sit down with your dentist and go over all the preventative measures they suggest, as well as the cosmetic procedures you might want to include. The plans are created largely around prevention, which is critical to a healthy smile as well as keeping future costs down. 

There are several things included in the prevention dental plans, including:

  • Exams: Going in for a routine exam ensures your mouth is regularly inspected for early cavity detection as well as oral diseases and conditions. It’s also a great opportunity for the dental professionals to provide information on proper brushing and flossing techniques.
  • Sealants: This can be an effective preventative measure, especially for those back molars that often escape the attention of patients when they brush. Sealants are a plastic coating family dentists apply to teeth in order to stave off tooth decay.
  • Fluoride Treatments: Though fluoride is found in many food and water sources, this treatment is still crucial to prevent decay. Fluoride solutions will give your teeth an extra boost of protection, keeping pesky bacteria from attaching to the surfaces.
  • Laser Frenectomy: This procedure utilizes a laser to remove the frenum in the upper lip or under the tongue. This can help reduce speech impediments or tied tongues, as well as give the mouth more range of motion.

Implementing a preventative plan under the guidance of a skilled dentist will improve the oral health of your entire family. For more information on the plans at Discovery Dental in Eagle River, visit the practice online or call (907) 622-5437.
