Wilkes Barre Dentist: Ensuring Oral Health Better than Fluoridation

If the article is anything to go by, a good number of Pennsylvania households (and Americans, in general) have access to fluoridated water. While fluoride, in controlled amounts, can prevent tooth decay in individuals, its consumption won’t guarantee full protection from severe decay. Patients will still need a skilled dentist from Wilkes Barre for proper treatment.

Tooth decay is largely preventable if patients manage to brush and floss regularly to prevent tooth-destroying bacteria from feeding off food particles. However, failing to maintain teeth cleanliness can aggravate tooth decay, which can lead to serious periodontal diseases and acute tooth ache. Fortunately, teeth already ravaged by decay can still be repaired by a capable dentist in Wilkes-Barre, PA, like Dr. James C. DeFinnis of Back Mountain Dental.
