What is preventive dentistry?

The goal of preventive dentistry is to try to prevent or mitigate small problems before they become big problems. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits help our patients achieve optimal oral health, treat developing conditions in the earliest stages and keep their natural teeth.

How often should I visit the dentist?

Most people find it valuable to have a checkup at least every four to six months.

What happens when I visit the dentist?

Don’t brush off preventive dental visits! Regular preventive dental care appointments are essential to maintaining good oral health. During these visits, your dentist can:

  • Check for problems that you might not see or feel
  • Find early signs of decay and gum disease
  • Treat oral health problems early, while they are still manageable

At your regular preventive care appointment, your teeth receive a thorough cleaning and polishing as well as an oral evaluation by the dentist. During the oral exam, your dentist checks the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks and tongue. At each visit, the dentist also checks old fillings and restorations because constant pressure from chewing, grinding or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip or crack. X-rays will be taken occasionally to help your dentist detect damage and disease that are not visible during the exam.

But what if my teeth feel fine?

OK, but how do they look? A smile can be the most eye-catching feature of a face. With dentistry’s many advances, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, missing or misshapen teeth. Along with regular oral care and checkups, dentists today offer many choices that can help you smile with confidence. Your preventive care appointment provides the perfect opportunity for you to talk to your dentist about the following procedures:
