Superficial cuts in the skin disappear without a trace, infections are treated with antibiotics, and broken bones mend. Our teeth, unfortunately, can’t regenerate. That’s why the team at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in San Antonio strongly emphasizes preventative dentistry.
Maintain Good Dental Hygiene
Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss every day. These simple habits provide the first line of defense against dental issues like gum disease and tooth decay. They also prevent the need for costlier cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures later in life.
A second line of defense is needed against bacteria, plaque and calculus buildup. Regular teeth cleanings with one of our dental hygienists here in San Antonio provide that second line of defense and will help you achieve and maintain good oral health. Be proactive about your oral health, schedule a teeth cleaning with us!
Old Silver Fillings
Modern fillings have many advantages over those in years past. There are stronger and more natural-looking materials. A filling can return structure and stability to a tooth while helping to relieve tooth pain. Many of our patients are not aware that white fillings are available. You can even replace old amalgam fillings with white fillings and give your mouth a makeover!
