Cavities and other oral health issues can damage your teeth and even affect your health. Luckily, family dentistry services provided by your Cumberland, RI, dentist Dr. Angeles Felix will help you keep your smile bright and healthy.


What services do family dentists offer?

Your Cumberland dentist provides a variety of services that will help you protect your smile, including:

  • Regular Checkups: Cavities usually don't cause pain until they're large. When you visit our dentist every six months, she'll spot any cavities while they're still small and fill them before they can cause too much damage. During your visit, your teeth will also be cleaned to remove cavity-causing plaque and tartar, a substance that can cause gum disease
  • Identification of Oral and General Health Issues: Every exam includes an oral cancer screening. Although strange lumps and bumps can be signs of cancer, other symptoms are more subtle. Your dentist will also look for signs of general health problems. For example, bleeding gums can be signs of gum disease or diabetes, while loose teeth could be an early indication of osteoporosis.
  • Sealants for Your Children: Sealants protect your child's permanent pre-molars and molars from tooth decay. The plastic-based resin material fills in tiny pits and grooves in teeth that collect plaque, reducing your son or daughter's cavity risk.
  • Treatments: Given that our family dentistry accommodates patients of all ages, we have the ability to fill teeth, use crowns to repair damaged teeth, fix defects with dental bonding, provide root canal therapy, and restore missing teeth with dentures, bridges, and dental implants. We also offer a variety of services that will improve the appearance of your smile, including teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, and cosmetic contouring.
  • Quality Care for Every Member of Your Family: As family dentists, we don't limit our services based on patient age. We care for patients of all ages and provide a friendly, welcoming environment that makes a dental visit a positive experience. If your family is currently seeing several different dentists, you'll appreciate the convenience that family dentists offer. You can even schedule a single group checkup for everyone in your household!

Like charity and a three day long Netflix or Hulu binge, good oral hygiene and care always begins at home. Consuming sugary foods and drinks in moderation, along with good oral hygiene practices will put you and your family ahead of the curve when it comes to maintaining healthy teeth and gums, and in preventing gum disease. But in addition to brushing and flossing every day, professional Oral Healthdental care is also necessary to rid the teeth and gums of traces of food, bacteria, plaque, and biofilm that a toothbrush and floss can leave behind.

Preventive Dental Care in Cumberland

As with general health, many people don't go to the dentist until something goes wrong, often in the form of cavities and tooth decay (and the resulting pain), or signs of gingivitis and gum disease, like bleeding and receding gums. Dr. Angeles Felix, a family dentist at Dental Associates of Cumberland in Rhode Island, gently encourages patients to think about routine dental exams as an investment not only in their oral health but in their general health and wellness as well. The reason is simple. In addition to possible tooth loss, advanced periodontal disease has been linked with increasing the risk of complications associated with serious conditions like diabetes, cardiac disease, and stroke. When bacteria accumulates between the teeth and below the gum line, it can cause inflammation, which when left unchecked can often lead to more serious health problems.

While daily brushing and flossing are the first steps in maintaining your oral health and helping to prevent periodontal disease, professional cleanings, and regular checkups are also necessary to take care of what your toothbrush and floss can leave behind. Contact Dr. Angeles Felix at Dental Associates of Cumberland by calling 401-723-0350 to schedule an appointment today.
