Preventive dentistry keeps your teeth healthy by helping them avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. Preventing dental problems also means avoiding excessive expenses.
The most common causes of tooth loss are tooth decay and gum disease. It is better to prevent these problems before they affect your teeth, gums, and your general health.
Your Deer Park dentist will conduct examinations and interviews to find out about health conditions that run through your family and provide a wide array of preventive solutions.
Our Preventive Dentistry Services In Deer Park
A regular dental check-up is important because they help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Visit your dentist every six months.
Proper oral hygiene helps to prevent dental problems like decay, gum disease, and even dental erosion.
Periodontics is an oral specialty focusing on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of periodontal diseases that affect the gums and oral structures supporting the teeth.
At some of your dental visits, your dentist may decide to take X-rays of your teeth to look for decay, gum disease, or other dental problems. X-rays expose you to radiation so to avoid having them done more than necessary, bring copies of previous X-rays with you when you’re visiting a new dentist.
Composite fillings are tooth-coloured resins and glass mixtures used to restore decayed or broken teeth.
They restore teeth that have become damaged as a result of tooth decay or injury by using enamel and dentin bonding techniques.
They are used as an alternative to silver fillings, which are aesthetically unpleasant and contain mercury.
Dental sealants are dental treatments intended to prevent tooth decay. Dental sealants are materials placed in pits and fissures to fill them in, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface.
Dental sealants are usually used in children who tend to develop tooth decay and usually placed as soon as the permanent molar teeth develop.
Scaling And Cleaning
One of the most commonly performed procedures by the dentist is the ‘scale and clean’. It removes nasty accumulations on your teeth like plaque, tartar, and stains.
Mouthguards And Splints For Sleep Disorders
Mouthguards, usually custom-fitted, are made for people with sleep apnoea or loud snorers. They adjust the lower jaw and tongue to keep the airway open.
Splints, on the other hand, are also custom-made devices that are attached around the teeth and over the tongue to help people with mild or moderate sleep apnoea. They hold the lower jaw slightly down and forward.
Children’s dentistry, or paediatric dentistry, focuses on providing a child-friendly environment for infants, children, and adolescents who visit the dentist for check-ups and treatments.
