What Is Preventive Dentistry?
Even if you feel like you have a perfect oral hygiene routine at home, preventive dentistry at a trusted dental office is still vital for adults and children alike. Preventive dentistry includes twice-yearly dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and more in order to prevent issues from occurring. Using advanced equipment, a biannual dental cleaning treats tartar and plaque that has built up while polishing the enamel for a healthier, brighter smile. Fluoride and sealants can be used to further protect the teeth against cavities and decay. During your appointment, you can get tips on caring for your teeth at home and learn if there are certain areas that may need more care. Preventive dental appointments will give Dr. Dao Pham a chance to identify any issues in your mouth that may need treatment. Having a professional cleaning is a vital step in maintaining your oral health so schedule an appointment at our Plano, TX location.
Am I An Ideal Candidate for Preventive Dentistry?
The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends patients schedule a professional cleaning two times each year. Children should get their first visit to the dentist before their first birthday, and following that, Dr. Pham can help you decide when your child is old enough for their next appointment. A professional cleaning can prevent cavities since plaque buildup, the biggest cause of tooth decay, is removed. A professional cleaning will also remove tartar and stains on the enamel. If you want to brighten your smile, freshen your breath, improve your oral health, and save money in the long run, schedule a cleaning for your whole family at Dali Dental.
What Can I Expect From Preventive Dentistry?
Preventive dentistry starts with a professional cleaning. We will start by addressing the tartar and plaque deposits on your enamel, which can be challenging to treat at home, no matter how often you brush and floss. Special instruments are used to scale buildup without affecting the enamel. To start, a device with ultrasonic technology loosens large areas of plaque and tartar with high-speed vibrations and a lubricating mist. Then, handheld instruments, like a curette or scaler, will be used to remove smaller pieces. Every tooth will be individually scaled to get all the tartar and plaque. After the teeth are clean, your enamel will be carefully polished to remove stains. Following that, we can administer sealants and fluoride. Both of these are a varnish, foam, gel, or liquid and are simply brushed onto the teeth. Fluoride will be brushed and left on your teeth to set in and strengthen and rebuild the health of your teeth. Dental sealants, on the other hand, are brushed onto the teeth in order to fight against bacteria and prevent cavities.
Preventive Dentistry Reviews
Long time patient here and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Dr Pham makes me a priority when I’m there. He is very thorough in my cleanings, while making sure I am ok during the visit. I heard some dentists don’t even do the cleanings anymore! My most recent visit was wonderful. He did the detailed cleaning and Audry did the polishing. Was a great experience, as usual. I love the whole staff. So grateful that I have such a great care team! Thank you Dr Pham, you are A+++++!
Went for exam and cleaning. Was immediately served and Dr. Pham did a very thorough job and had some good recommendations. Price reasonable since I have no dental insurance.
I had a great visit for cleaning and xrays. Great Service!
