One of the most important goals of any dental practice is to help its patients prevent future dental problems from ever occurring. Our Galesburg dental office of Knox Family Dental offers many preventative care services to keep the whole family’s teeth healthy and their smiles bright. Our practice is unique because we’ve brought together a team of three highly respected doctors representing three different specialties that can take care of any oral health issue your family might have.
Our Galesburg dental office believes that our patients are the first line of defense in protecting their own teeth from decay and other dental problems and that together we can prevent future problems and promote healthy teeth. Our doctors provide regular comprehensive examinations and radiographs to evaluate the state of your oral health and diagnose any present or developing problems. We can recommend treatments that can minimize any impending problems. We provide dental sealants for the permanent molars of our young patients to help keep decay out.
Our Galesburg dental office stresses that the best way to prevent tooth and gum problems caused by decay is to keep the teeth clean. Our office emphasizes that regular teeth cleanings will help rid the teeth of decay causing bacteria from leftover food particles and other debris. A dental cleaning from our hygienist scrapes away these food particles from around and between the teeth and gums. The office cleaning alone is not enough to ward off future problems. Our doctor recognizes the extreme importance of routine daily dental care at home. Proper tooth brushing, flossing and use of dental rinses are key to promoting good dental health. We work with our younger patients to make sure that they develop the best techniques in terms of daily dental care and understand the importance of it. We try to make good dental habits fun for children. Make an appointment with our office to evaluate the state of your dental health and we’ll develop a preventative program just for you.
