At R. Boyd Gilleland DDS in Port Charlotte, we offer a wide range of dental treatments to improve the look of your smile (cosmetic dentistry) and to restore health to the teeth if they should become damaged in some way (restorative dentistry). We also provide preventive dentistry, to maintain the health of the teeth and gums and avoid the need for any restorative treatments.
As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Though we can address practically any dental issue you might have, from cavities to lost teeth, it is much more affordable to maintain healthy teeth than to undergo any kind of procedure. Not only is there the cost to consider, but depending on how far they’ve progressed, dental problems can be difficult to treat and sometimes quite painful. Preventive dentistry consists of a number of easy and inexpensive methods of detecting and preventing dental issues. It also includes procedures used to arrest tooth decay and stop other dental issues from progressing.
To get a boost in maintaining your oral health, consider the preventive dentistry treatments at R. Boyd Gilleland DDS. We are happy to work to keep our patients’ mouths healthy in Port Charlotte.
