Take Measures to Prevent Dental Problems from Occurring

As the old saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This is certainly true with your dental care as well. With the proper cleaning and treatment, we can help you with the preventative care that will keep you from having major dental issues. Aside from regular check-ups and cleanings, we can also offer other preventative measures to ensure great dental health. Call Us to schedule a dental appointment.

Sealants

A sealant can be applied to the chewing surface of the tooth (generally molars and pre-molars) to help prevent tooth decay. This sealant will create a protective shield over the enamel of the tooth by bonding into the depressions and grooves.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is one of the most effective of the preventative dental services we offer. Fluoride makes your teeth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugar in your mouth, helping prevent tooth decay. Fluoride can also help reverse the early stages of tooth decay.

Prophylaxis

A thorough, proper teeth cleaning will remove the plaque bacteria from your mouth. This will help prevent tooth decay and bad breath, while also improving the aesthetic look of your teeth.

Pocket Irrigation

Pocket irrigation is useful in cleaning plaque from between teeth (interdental) and below the gumline (subgingival), to prevent harmful oral bacteria from colonizing in your mouth. This procedure can also deliver antibacterial agents below the gumline, helping fight gum disease and halitosis.

Digital X-Rays

With the advent of top technology, we can take full digital x-rays of your teeth and gums. Not only can this allow us to pinpoint any dental problems you currently have, but it can also give us clues as to any potential issues, allowing us to address them before they become serious problems.
