At Cook Dental Excellence, we place on an emphasis on preventive care, and recommend scheduling biannual visits with our experienced Bloomington dentist as the best way to maintain optimal oral health. Our comprehensive preventive care program includes checkup exams, cleanings, and protective treatments to keep your smile healthy and beautiful throughout your life. With the use of leading-edge technology and proven methods of care, our goal is to halt the onset and progress of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
By visiting our Bloomington dentist for routine checkups and care, you can help to keep your teeth and gums healthy from the start. Tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems are caused by a sticky film called plaque. Plaque gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugars. While brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages are important steps you can take each day to combat the detrimental effects of plaque, to complement your daily oral hygiene regimen, it’s also important to visit our office for professional teeth cleanings. During a teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove any plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums, and will guide you on how to better clean and care for your smile between checkups. For our pediatric patients, we strive to impart healthy habits that will last a lifetime, and offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, for an added layer of protection against cavities. For patients of all ages, our preventive care program includes a comprehensive examination of the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow us to diagnose tooth decay and gum disease from their outset, when they are easiest to treat.
With the compassionate, personalized care of our Bloomington dentist, it’s easy and stress-free to keep up with routine preventive care for the whole family. At Cook Dental Excellence, we offer convenient alternating early morning and evening hours, making it easier to schedule checkups for you and your loved ones.
