If you’re like many people, you prioritize visiting the dentist when an oral health issue arises. And while doing so is certainly important, it’s also crucial to have your mouth assessed on a regular basis to prevent problems.


What is preventive dentistry?


Preventive dentistry is the term used for describing various dental procedures that aim to prevent problems from occurring or catching them early on. Taking this proactive approach is much more effective than waiting until something goes wrong, which can often lead to extensive (and sometimes expensive) treatment.


While this is by no means an exhaustive list, here are some of the most common preventive dentistry procedures we perform:


·      Dental cleanings and exams: These are typically done every six months, though more frequent visits may be recommended depending on your individual needs. During a cleaning, our team will remove any plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. We will also check for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or other problems.

·    Oral cancer checks: These are important for catching cancer early, when it is most treatable. By examining your mouth for signs of cancer, we can detect problems early and get you the treatment you need.

·      Sealants: Sealants are thin, clear coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. They help prevent cavities in both children and adults by protecting the teeth from cavity-causing plaque and bacteria.
