Taking care of your teeth is vital to keeping up with your overall health. By brushing twice daily, as well as flossing and rinsing with mouthwash, can help prevent significant plaque buildup in the crevices between and in teeth as well as along the gum line. But these daily hygiene measures should also accompany annual dental checkups and dental cleanings every six months or so. Even if you do your best to keep your teeth clean and healthy, tooth decay can still affect your teeth due to other factors such as the foods you eat, your age, and other habits. Our Ridgefield family dentist, Michael B. Schwarz, DMD, can help you prevent cavities as well as fill them should the need arise.

While it is important to schedule an appointment with the dentist when you feel you may have a cavity or other issues, you should still make sure you make your regular visits as well. These regular checkups with your Ridgefield family dentist can help identify oral health issues at their first signs, before you may even experience symptoms. Some cavities can occur with few or no symptoms but can still be eating away at your tooth enamel without you knowing it. If a cavity is left untreated, the tooth decay can spread to the tooth root, the nerves and even the gums, spreading infection and inflammation. Michael B. Schwarz, DMD is here to help identify any cavities you and anyone in your family may have, as well as fill them to prevent further tooth damage. Amalgam fillings are often metal fillings consisting of a combination of silver, tin, zinc, copper and mercury. These fillings are strong and also relatively inexpensive, although they do not match the color of your teeth and will stand out. Composite fillings are a combination of ceramic and plastic compounds which can better blend in the natural appearance of your teeth.
Both dental filling options are available to you here in our offices. If you feel you may have a cavity or are due for your annual dental checkup or cleaning, feel free to schedule an appointment with our Ridgefield family dentist, Michael B. Schwarz, DMD, today.
