The Importance of Preventive Dentistry
Routine dental exams are essential to maintaining a healthy smile. They also allow our team to monitor and identify any changes in your dental health. In many cases, when dental issues are identified early, we can intervene before a more complex dental problem develops.
Most dentists recommend patients visit their office biannually. During these visits, we can examine the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. If there are any issues with your dental health, we can perform the necessary testing and treatment to restore health and function to your smile.
A routine dental exam typically includes:
- Screening for gum disease
- Dental caries screening
- Oral cancer screenings
- One on one consultation with Dr. Tu
- Patient education resources
During your routine dental visit, you will also receive a professional dental cleaning. Using specialized tools, one of our hygienists will gently remove any plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and near the gum line. Routine, in-office dental cleanings are a key part of preventive dentistry. When plaque and tartar are not removed, it can increase the risk of gingivitis and periodontitis.
With preventive dentistry, we aim to preserve the natural tooth structure, protect the teeth and gums from damage, and enhance the health and wellness of your smile. Through patient education, comprehensive treatment plans, and specialized care, our team can help you improve the health of your smile.
