At Bailey Family Dental we will develop a caries management program that is personalized for you. Dental decay is a contagious disease that can be spread from one person to another. Decay-causing bacteria can be spread by sharing eating utensils, toothbrushes and saliva. Dr. Bailey and your hygienist will develop a preventitive program designed for your needs. At your initial visit, oral hygiene instructions will be discussed and a maintanence program that is right for you will be determined. Our goal is to help you prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored and manage periodontal disease to keep your natural teeth for a lifetime.
