The Services We Provide
The general dentistry strategies we use at our Bridgeport practice in order to protect your teeth from damage and decay are state of the art and continually advancing. Some of our services include:
Routine exams and cleanings: A professional cleaning can reach the plaque and bacteria that is easily missed by your average toothbrush. Having one of our doctors examine your mouth on a regular basis also gives us a chance to spot any problems in their early stages.
X-rays: Digital X-rays give us a chance to recognize problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. Cavities between your teeth or problems below the gum line may go unnoticed without X-ray technology.
Mouth guards: Grinding or clenching your teeth at night can cause excessive wear that may lead to more serious problems down the road. Night guard therapy involves fitting you with a comfortable, soft plastic tray, similar to an athletic mouth guard, which will protect your smile from such habits.
Fillings and sealants: Sealants are used to protect your teeth from decay. If decay has already developed, the damaged material will be removed and replaced by a filling, which will protect your smile from further harm.
Periodontics: When your gums have been damaged by periodontal (gum) disease, our team of experts can eliminate the disease-causing bacteria and restore the health of your mouth. Offering both surgical and non-surgical treatments, DeJesus Dental Group can meet a wide array of needs.
The way you care for your teeth at home is critical to your oral health. Brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste and flossing at least twice a day are two of the most basic habits that will benefit your dental health. Brushing and flossing removes plaque and bacteria build up that can lead to gum disease or tooth decay. Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet also plays a large role in maintaining your smile. Foods that are high in sugar and carbohydrates feed bacteria that produce plaque. Being aware of the consequences of poor dental care can also be powerful motivation to create good hygiene habits.
