Affordable Family Dentistry
As a Louisville family dentist, Dr. Westermann sees patients of all ages and recommends that children come in for an initial visit around the age of 3. One of the chief dental health concerns for children is tooth decay. Routine preventive care visits can help your child maintain healthy teeth and prevent tooth cavities. Dr. Westermann also offer dental sealants to further prevent the formation of cavities.
Preventing Gum Disease in Adults
According to recent findings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), half of Americans aged 30 or older have some form of gum disease. This chronic condition can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Routine visits to the dentist can help you prevent and manage gum disease in any stage.
Dr. Westermann and her staff screen for periodontal disease during your routine visit and offer periodontal therapy options to treat the various stages of gum disease and to help maintain gum health between visits.
