Your oral care constitutes an essential part of your health. When you take care of your oral health, you keep your body fit and healthy in the long run. Preventive dental care includes everything ranging from instructions, treatments, procedures, and practices of maintaining your oral health in check.
Preventive dental care is crucial for healthy teeth and an attractive smile. The procedures intend to prevent enamel wear, cavities, and gingivitis.
Dental Check-up and Examinations
Regular dental visits at our clinic form part of preventive dental care. When you visit our clinic regularly to check your mouth and teeth, we find an underlying problem and treat it at the right time.
Such visits save your dental condition from getting worse. If you do not opt for dental check-ups and examinations, your dental problem may cause you significant damage. We look for early signs of decay, gum disease, cavities, and other oral health problems during regular check-ups and examinations, thus treating and conditioning them on time. Visit us for check-ups and examinations twice a year to keep your oral health in place.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
Over time, your teeth get exposed to various elements, leading to the deposit of plaque, tartar, germs, and bacteria. The lifestyle habits such as smoking, drinking, underlying disease, or any other factors also cause your teeth to stain.
Under this procedure, we remove the deposits of calculus from the surface of your teeth. It not only prevents your teeth from tooth or gum decay but also gives you a desirable smile.
Dental sealants are thin, composite-like coatings that we apply on the chewing surfaces of your molars to prevent the food from getting trapped into your pits and fissures. Dental sealants keep the formation of plaque and tartar at bay.
They are a popular preventive dental care procedure among children and help to prevent cavities. Dental sealants are recommended for adults as well.
Fluoride helps to fortify the teeth using demineralization, where minerals fuse to all the damaged areas of your teeth. This treatment also intervenes in the production of bacteria and acids, thus preventing tooth decay.
Fluoride is an affordable way to keep your dental health in check. We apply a fluoride gel on the surface of your teeth and let it sit for some time. Afterward, we rinse the gel and let your teeth soak it properly.
