Routine dental exams are important for a number of reasons. They allow Dr. Robert Rebert, Jr to clean plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas of your smile. They also allow Dr. Rebert to catch dental health issues early. During your dental exam, we will take X-rays, examine the teeth and gums, perform an oral cancer screening, and thoroughly clean the teeth. We may also recommend fluoride treatment to strengthen the teeth, or of a sealant to prevent tooth decay.
When a patient develops a cavity, the most conservative treatment option is a filling. Dr. Rebert uses tooth-colored composite fillings because they are natural-looking and durable. They can provide support to your tooth while also maintaining its appearance. Dr. Rebert will recommend the placement of a tooth-colored filling if you have a cavity, or if you have old or damaged metal fillings.
Dr. Rebert offers pediatric dental care to help young patients establish good dental care practices at an early age. We recommend that you bring your child in for his or her first dental appointment by the time the first tooth erupts. This helps your child become accustomed to visiting the dentist, and allows us to educate you and your child about proper home care. In addition to regular dental exams and cleanings, we commonly perform fluoride and dental sealant treatments for children.
Gum disease is a common cause of tooth loss among adults and seniors. It is also known to increase the risk of heart problems. To maintain your oral and overall health, it is important to treat gum disease as soon as possible. If you have mild or moderate gum disease, we can perform a deep cleaning procedure, also known as root planing and scaling, to remove plaque that has accumulated below the gum line, smooth the tooth roots, and reduce periodontal pockets.
When it comes to dental care, prevention is key. We are committed to educating patients about their dental health so they can exercise proper at-home care. By using proper techniques to brush twice a day and floss daily, patients can reduce the risk of tooth decay and other complications.
We take great pride in using the latest dental technology to make our patients’ office visits as quick and painless as possible. Our state-of-the-art office is equipped with an intra-oral camera, digital x-rays, and CT scans to capture detailed images of your teeth, jaw, and gums. With these technologies, Dr. Rebert can diagnose oral health conditions and develop effective treatment plans, while also educating patients about their dental health and treatment options.
