A few months ago one of our patients was in to see us, and from looking at her x-rays, we saw the beginning signs of decay on 5 teeth. Needless to say, this was disturbing news. It could eventually involve multiple appointments to "fill the cavities" which would be an inconvenience, and it was not affordable for her. What to do?
Because there is success in remineralization therapy, (putting the minerals back into the teeth that the bacteria have taken), we decided to help keep our patient from going down the path of restoring her teeth due to decay. We worked with her to provide the best method of home therapy, applying minerals necessary to halt and reverse the beginning signs of decay.
Our patient was just in for a re-check, and new x-rays revealed success. Not only was the process of decay halted, but in some teeth it was reversed - gone, vanished!! Can you imagine her delight? No unnecessary appointments needed to restore her teeth and way less money involved!! It made our day to see our patient so encouraged and happy.
We care about you too! Please check out the information on our website about how you, too, can halt or reverse the beginning signs of decay in your mouth through remineralization therapy. And as always, come in and see us so we can be of help to you!
