While we are always ready to treat tooth decay and damage, our first priority is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. At the dental office of Cynthia L. Skigen D.M.D. P.A., we provide excellent preventive dentistry in Jacksonville, Florida. To stop tooth decay and gum disease in its tracks, there are two main areas of focus: consistent dental care and at-home care. Both are necessary to achieve a long-lasting smile. We provide you with all the professional treatments necessary to protect your smile, while also arming you with all the information and tools you need to expertly take care of your smile at home.

To make the most out of our dental treatments, we encourage you to schedule a visit with Dr. Cynthia L. Skigen at least once every six months. This ensures we are able to consistently care for your smile and catch any signs of trouble early on, when treatment is still simple and affordable. We also encourage you to contact our dental office if you are experiencing any symptoms of tooth decay or gum disease, such as:

  • Tooth pain, especially when chewing
  • A persistent ache in the teeth and mouth
  • Bleeding gums
  • Tender, swollen gums
  • Loose teeth

We love taking care of your smile, and we hope to hear from you soon. If you are due for a visit to the dentist, please contact our dental office today for more information. We look forward to serving your family!
