Preventive dentistry is a field of specialization that includes life practices and dental procedures. They are designed to prevent the onset as well as the progression of oral disorders.

No tooth is as good as their natural tooth. Although dental technology has revolutionized dental restorations, we always encourage our patients to integrate preventive dentistry into their lifestyle. We strive to help eliminate the need for expensive dental procedures later on.

Preventive dentistry consists of dental home care and dental education provided by your dental hygienist. Preventive dentistry aims you avoid getting any oral disease. As part of a routine dental check-up, we look for signs and symptoms of periodontal disease as well as dental decay. Our team of experts will then make recommendations for any necessary treatment. As part of our routine check ups, cancer screening has proven to be very useful in the early diagnosis. Early detection is most important in the cure of cancer.

What are preventive dentistry procedures?

Teeth cleaning, or prophylaxis, is the most common dental procedure under our preventive dentistry program.
Fluoride supplements and dental sealants are offered to children to ensure that they keep their primary teeth healthy. Dental sealants will help seal off any food debris and bacteria that children will be unable to remove properly. It is important to prevent premature loss of primary teeth because they guide the growth and alignment of permanent teeth.
It is routine for us to look out for any signs of malocclusion or irregularities during dental consultations.
To continue proper dental care at home, all of our patients are provided proper education. This will include instructions on proper brushing and flossing, proper nutrition, and harmful effects of smoking on a patient’s dental health.
