Protecting You and Your Loved Ones from Cavities
Tooth decay is everywhere. It’s one of the most common childhood diseases, and about 92% of adults have at least one cavity. To protect your family from tooth decay – as well as gum disease and other common oral health problems – you should make sure everyone receives at least two checkups from Dr. Gina Ostrand every year. The faster these issues are found, the easier it will be to avoid a worst-case scenario! Call us today to schedule your next visit for preventive dentistry in Pewaukee, WI at Ostrand Family Dentistry.

Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
During a regular visit, we’ll look for signs of decay and gum disease that you might not have noticed on your own (as well as possible symptoms of oral cancer). Then we’ll clean your teeth of harmful plaque and tartar; these substances could have accumulated around the spots you’ve missed while brushing on your own. Finally, if we found something wrong, we’ll develop a treatment plan to address it before permanent damage is done to your mouth.
Is there enough fluoride in the water your family drinks? This mineral can dramatically lower the risk of tooth decay by protecting the enamel from the acids produced by oral bacteria. To make sure your family’s fluoride needs are being met, we can apply it directly to the teeth during a cleaning. This treatment can be especially important for younger children whose teeth are still developing, but it can be used to the benefit of adults as well.
Is your child going to need braces? Nowadays, the American Dental Association suggests scheduling an orthodontic screening before the age of seven (although signs of alignment problems can sometimes be found even earlier than that). We can closely examine the position of your child’s teeth with X-rays and other techniques; this way, we’ll be able to discuss their orthodontic needs with you as soon as possible. Depending on what was found, we might refer you to an expert orthodontist located within two miles of our dental office.
