What is Preventative Dental Care?

Preventative dentistry involves caring for your teeth and mouth before painful problems arise and reducing the likelihood that they will develop. For instance, rather than filling a cavity once it’s formed,  having a professional dentist clean your teeth on a regular basis could keep the cavity from forming at all. Early gum disease and other health issues can also be found and treated early through preventative dental care.

In addition to the services provided by Williams Dental, there are things you can do at home to prevent cavities, gum disease, and gingivitis. Some examples of this include, brushing and flossing twice daily, reducing the amount of acidic or sugary foods and drinks you have, and avoiding tobacco. Above all, it’s also important to schedule your dental cleanings every six months.

Preventative Dental Care FAQ

  • What are the most common preventative dentistry services?
    • Teeth cleaning
    • Fluoride treatments
    • Assessment of gum health
    • Sealants
    • Oral cancer screenings
    • Fittings for night guards and athletic guards
  • Why is it important to stay on top of dental care?
    • Preventative dentistry lowers your risk of developing serious dental issues like tooth decay, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. As problems arise, the dentist will be able to detect them early and create less invasive treatment plans before they progress, which will save you time, money, and discomfort in the future.
  • Do I really need routine x-rays?
    • Some tooth damage is not visible to the naked eye, including early tooth decay, bone loss, and even infections in the gums. If the dentist can detect these issues early through x-rays, treatment can begin before severe tooth damage and pain occur.
  • Who offers preventative dental care?
    • Most general dentists, including Dr. Williams, offer preventative dental care. Dr. Williams and his team have extensive experience in detecting and preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and bone loss through regular preventative dental visits.
