Preserve Your Oral Health and Minimize Your Risk of Complications with Preventive Dentistry
Several factors contribute to decay, tooth loss, periodontal disease, and other conditions. The Art of Dentistry provides advanced, safe, and effective preventive dentistry treatments to help minimize your chance of developing serious dental conditions by maintaining good oral health thorough preventive checkups and examinations.
During your cleaning, one of our hygienists will remove plaque and tartar from along the gum line to prevent the accumulation of harmful bacteria. The hygienist will also clean and polish the surfaces of your teeth, and floss around each tooth. Dr. Sol Weiss will perform an in-depth examination to check for damage, such as decay, chips, or cracks in the teeth, and evaluate any restorations in the mouth.
Preventive dentistry encompasses professional dental care and practicing good hygiene at home. There are several things you can do at home to keep your mouth healthy and bacteria at bay:
Brushing, flossing, using mouthwash, staying hydrated, and minimizing your consumption of sugary and acidic foods will help to ensure optimal health. Even meticulous oral hygiene needs to be combined with professional, in-office care. Exams, cleanings, and oral cancer screenings represent the most basic preventive measures.
Our Dentists are trained to identify soft tissue abnormalities that may indicate oral cancer. The disease typically responds well to treatment in its earliest stages, which is why it is important to schedule preventive checkups with twice per year.
