Our team understands how important preventative care is for your dental health. It’s at the center of your oral health. We keep the focus on your dental health by providing regular exams and teeth cleanings as well as by providing the kind of preventative treatments that you need for better oral health. We also encourage you to have a healthy oral hygiene regimen to keep your teeth that way.
Cleanings and Dental Exams
One of the most important types of preventative dentistry that you can get is our dental cleanings and exams. It’s important every six months to get one of these preventative appointments and to allow our team to give your teeth a deep cleaning. You will also be checked by Dr. Harrington to assess the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth.
This is at the heart of your dental and oral health, laying the foundation for any treatments you need to deal with any problems in your mouth. These exams are thorough so that the dentist can make a full assessment of any issues that are coming up. The cleaning is also helpful for making sure that you don’t have food building up on your teeth over time.
We can also take this time to discuss your oral health habits so that you know exactly how to best care for your teeth and gums. You can ask our team your questions and find out more about caring for your oral health.
We have a device that is used for the early detection of cavities, and this can show the dentist that you have them before they would be visible on an x-ray. A bright light is used to scan for vulnerable areas of the teeth so that you can get early treatment for a cavity. This can greatly improve the way you get your treatment, and it’s great for your dental health.
Fluoride Treatments and Sealants
Another type of preventative treatment is getting fluoride treatments applied in the office. This can help your teeth to prevent cavities from forming. When a small amount of tooth decay begins, it can often turn into cavities. For many patients, getting these treatments is a great way to reduce the risk of that happening. They are helpful for both adults and children to get. We can also apply dental sealants to teeth to make them better protected against food particles and bacteria that can cause tooth decay to begin.
When you get the preventative treatments that are so helpful for protecting teeth, you can avoid many of the cavities and other problems that are so common among patients of all ages. By getting your semi-annual cleaning and oral exam, you get a good foundation for your dental health.
