Protecting Oral Health with Preventive Dentistry
While Remmers Dental provides a number of advanced restorative dentistry treatments for those times smile damage needs repair, we understand the importance of general dentistry for prevention. We’d rather help you maintain your healthy smile, which is why we encourage you to visit us for regular comprehensive dental care and education about how to best avoid the common oral health pitfalls you may encounter. Remmers Dental has provided exceptional general dentistry and more to Louisville, KY since 1966, and families from the community rely on our modern and technologically advanced care.
Our experienced general dentists, Dr. Kenneth Remmers and Dr. Steve Remmers, recommend patients visit us every six months. When you come in for dental cleanings and exams twice a year, you greatly improve your chances of avoiding major oral health problems like cavities, tooth infections, and gum disease. Tooth decay and gum disease are partially caused by plaque buildup on the teeth and below the gum line, and it can be impossible for even the most thorough patient to reach all the surfaces where plaque hides. That’s where our general dentistry checkups and hygiene visits come in. When you visit Remmers Dental in Louisville, KY, we’ll perform a complete cleaning, removing plaque and hardened tartar to reduce your risk of disease and decay.
There’s more to general dentistry than checkups and cleanings. Some of the services we offer include:
Your First Visit
If you’ve scheduled your first appointment at our Louisville dentistry practice, we want to welcome you to Remmers Dental! Your first visit to our practice will be a comprehensive experience that we hope sends you off feeling confident about the health and happiness of your smile. Once you’ve been invited back to the treatment room, one of our doctors reviews past medical and dental problems and performs an in-depth oral health evaluation. This includes cavity detection, periodontal screening, oral cancer screening, X-ray capture, and an inspection of current restorations.
Once our team fully understands your needs, we provide you with personalized recommendations for treatment, and develop a plan that fits your needs and budget. We also provide a thorough cleaning and any needed instructions for more effective brushing and flossing at home.
Check Ups and Cleanings
We recommend that patients of all ages attend at least two check-ups and cleanings each year. Even those who practice diligent homecare may fall victim to chronic issues or areas of decay that go unnoticed. Our team in Louisville, KY catches these problems at the earliest opportunity during routine appointments. This simplifies the patient’s treatment and helps them maintain a great smile through the years.
We provide protection against the constant threat of plaque. This sticky, bacteria-filled substance is constantly forming over teeth, and while regular oral hygiene can get rid of it, missed areas may start to accumulate a hard deposit of plaque known as tartar. Tartar can’t be removed through regular means which is why attending regular cleanings at Remmers Dental is so important. One of our talented hygienists professionally removes any trace of plaque and tartar from teeth and gums leaving your smile feeling refreshed.
Are you or a loved one experiencing a dental emergency? Don’t wait – contact Remmers Dental as soon as possible for the assistance and relief you need most during this difficult time. We do everything we can to see you on the same day as your initial call, and if you’re unable to reach us right away, our team provides instructions on how to manage your condition properly. We see a variety of emergency cases in Louisville including broken teeth, dislodged teeth, toothaches, soft tissue injuries, and more.
