Children’s Dental Health Concerns
One of the chief dental health concerns for children is tooth decay. Routine visits to our Vestavia Hills dentist office can help your child maintain healthy teeth and prevent tooth cavities. Dr. Bruce Spink also offers dental sealants to further prevent the formation of cavities. Dr. Spink recommends that children begin visiting the dentist around the age of 3.
Preventing Gum Disease in Adults
The American Dental Association (ADA) says that 7 out of 10 adults has some form of gum disease. When left untreated, gum disease can contribute to missing teeth as well as other health concerns like diabetes, stroke and heart disease. Regular visits to Spink Dentistry can help to reduce the build up of plaque and tartar and prevent the spread of gum disease. Learn more about gum disease.
