Preventive Dentistry Q & A


What is preventive dentistry?

Preventive dentistry at Smile Dental includes dental services that reduce your risk of oral health problems. It consists of in-office preventive dental treatments and exceptional at-home oral hygiene to properly care for your teeth, gums, and the rest of your mouth.

What can I expect during preventive dentistry visits?

At Smile Dental, the highly trained team offers a wide range of preventive dentistry services. They professionally clean your teeth using specialized dental instruments, scrape away tartar and plaque in hard-to-reach areas, floss your teeth, and place dental sealants or fluoride on your teeth to reduce the risk of decay and gum disease.

Your Smile Dental provider takes dental X-rays to find early signs of bone loss or other dental problems requiring immediate treatment. They complete a thorough dental exam, including an oral cancer screening. Caring dentists discuss the results with you, answering any questions you might have regarding your oral health.

Will I require dental treatment?

If your dentist finds tooth decay, injury, gum disease, or oral cancer, or any other oral health problem, they discuss the available treatments with you. The many cosmetic and restorative dental treatments available at Smile Dental include:

  • Fillings
  • Dental bonding
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures
  • Root canals
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Oral surgery

The Smile Dental team personalizes each oral health treatment to get the most effective, long-lasting results.

How should I care for my teeth at home?

Preventive dentistry includes exceptional at-home oral hygiene. To keep your teeth and gums healthy, brush your teeth after meals using a fluoride toothpaste. Floss your teeth at least once daily, and rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash.

Eat a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables but low in sodas and sweets. Avoid chewing on hard objects, including ice, and wear a mouthguard at night if you grind your teeth.

When should I schedule preventive dentistry visits?

Go to your routine dental cleanings and exams at Smile Dental every six months or more frequently if your dentist recommends it. Call the office at the first sign of tooth decay, tooth pain, or gum disease.
