Even with proper flossing and brushing, dental decay occurs. While sugar is the number one contributing factor, some people are more prone to developing dental decay than others. About one-third of cavities are related to genetics—the shape of your teeth and amount of saliva in your mouth are part of this equation. Furthermore, some chronic health issues, including diabetes, kidney disease, dry mouth, and gastric reflux, can increase your risk of dental decay. Our team provides the latest techniques for routine dental care—such as regular exams, cleanings, fillings, crowns, root canals, extractions, dentures, and occlusal guards—to both treat current conditions and educate to prevent future issues.
