Cavities are caused by bacteria in your mouth that builds up between brushing. The acid created from these bacteria creates a hole in your tooth, which we all now know as a cavity.
Cavities can be prevented by following good brushing and flossing habits. Limiting your sugar intake will greatly lower your chances of hearing that you have a cavity at your next visit. One simple way to prevent cavities is to drink more water and chewing sugarless gum. Our staff is very highly trained in helping you create good habits so that you may prevent cavities.
Gingivitis is more or less inflammation of your gums. It is caused by plaque collecting along your gum line and causing swelling and irritation. It is the first stage of periodontal disease and if caught early, can easily be reversed. Making a visit to the dentist every 6 months will keep your gums and smile happy!
We would be more than happy to see your child as early as age 3. We encourage parents to bring their child in for a “fun” visit so that they can become familiar with the dental chair and our staff.
Great experience! They were able to take care of my needs as quickly as possible. Definitely will be my go to dental provider for the foreseeable future!

I went there for an evaluation for dentures. The staff and dentist are really friendly, professional, and polite. They are also very upfront and look out for the patient. When I got my insurance approval back, they told me that it would be easier to have them do all the work instead of me driving from Elkhart to Mishawaka to get my dentures fitted. They get a five star in my book!

When I went to abg I was scared, as we all are from time to time when going to the dentist. I was especially anxious knowing I had some extensive mouth work that had been neglected for far too long. The entire staff made me feel very at ease and welcomed. They came up with a workable plan for me to get my smile back and NEVER ONCE made me feel any shame for having waited so long to seek dental help. Now instead of ashamed, I'm excited for the first time in a very long time. Lesson: Don't wait. Trust ABG to care.
