How preventive dentistry saves your smilePreventive dentistry is a method that will save your smile and maintain your oral health. This means that you go for dental checkups and the dentist will check if you have any oral health issues. Having teeth cleanings, examinations, fluoride treatments, and oral cancer screening does not mean that you have health issues rather they are ways to prevent future health hazards. Our dentist will help you understand what preventive dentistry is and what you need it.

Cleanings


This involves the removal of plaque and tartar from the areas between the teeth. Brushing and flossing will remove plaque but tartar will not be removed by brushing. The teeth need cleaning and so having deep cleanings will make the teeth better.

Examinations


An oral examination is done by the dentist to detect any oral health issues that might be attacking you. This is a method that can prevent gingivitis or even periodontal gum disease. The dentist is also able to guide you on ways of taking care of the mouth.

Oral cancer Screening


This is an examination or screening done to detect any abnormal cells in the mouth so that the dental team can detect any oral cancer. Oral cancer can have severe effects on the entire body. Get oral cancer screening at least twice a year and this will keep you safe. The dentist will offer topical fluoride if your teeth have been weakened. Fluoride helps in rebuilding the enamel and preventing tooth decay. Our dental team will help you in knowing the importance of preventive dentistry for your general oral health.
