what we as dentists fightWhat Dentists Fight- Cavities and Gum Disease

All dentists know that to the most common issues people have with their teeth and overall oral health is cavities and gum disease. Our goal as dentists is to keep your mouth as healthy as possible so that your total health will benefit from your oral health. However, we do see many patients who get cavities and or gum disease. 

Gum Disease

Gum disease is a common but harmful disease that, if not properly taken care of, can lead to infection, tooth loss, and other issues. Gum disease can be identified by bleeding, swollen, red, and even receding gums.

Cavities

Cavities are a result of execs bacteria forming on your teeth. These bacteria eat away at your teeth, causing holes to develop, which can also lead to tooth loss, infection, and pain. 

How We Combat Gum Disease and Cavities

A typical healthy patient should go to the dentist at least two times a year, every six months. However, if we notice signs of gum irritation or cavities, we will suggest that you come in at least one more time a year. So, three times a year, every four months, so that we can keep on eye on your teeth and gums to make sure the issues do not progress. 

If you are worried about your insurance not covering the third visit, we offer the Bilski Dental Savings plan, which often ends up costing less than traditional dental insurance and covers more procedures. 

Dental Care Education

We also make it a point to educate all of our patients on the importance of dental care and how to properly care for your teeth and gums. We have lots of information on our website and events that can teach you how to keep your mouth healthy.


If you have cavities or gum disease, make sure you are taking the necessary steps to keep them under control. If you have any questions, contact us at Bilski Family Dentistry, or request an appointment online today.
