You want the best for your family, so of course helping them maintain good health is a priority. Optimal oral health is an important part of the equation that leads to overall health. When you make sure your family sees the dentist, you’re not only caring for their teeth, mouth and smile. You’re also caring for their general health. With this in mind, the office of Dr. Paul V. Caputo in Naperville, IL, makes general dentistry a top priority for you and your family.
The American Dental Association recommends visiting the dentist at least twice a year, or once every six months. With this regularity, small problems can be spotted and corrected before they have time to become more complex issues.
Family Dentistry for You and Yours
When you see Dr. Caputo and his staff for general and family dentistry, we will clean and polish your teeth and remove any plaque and tartar build-up. Our dental hygienists check for early signs of gum disease and reverse the early symptoms. Gum disease is a leading cause of further tooth loss and bone loss, and it may lead to other health concerns including heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Of course, we’ll also check for any tooth decay or cracks, which can be repaired with tooth-colored fillings and bonding.
Beyond the Check-up
Dr. Caputo and his team can also treat other oral health concerns. If you or a family member has been experiencing the pain that comes from TMJ or teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism) we can help alleviate that pain with an oral appliance. Likewise, if there’s an athlete in your family, you’ll want to make sure they wear an athletic mouthguard to protect their lips, teeth, gums and jaw. For children, we offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments to strengthen their teeth and help them fight cavities.
