What Type of Preventive Dentistry Should You Seek?older man gets preventative dentistry

We recommend coming in to see our team at Lovett, Splendid, or Haven Dentistry in Texas for an appointment. There, you can learn more about the type of preventative dental care that may be best suited for your needs. Our team can make recommendations based on the concerns you have. For instance, some of the most common preventative dentistry services we recommend include the following:

Dental Sealants: Sealants are a type of protective film that we place over your teeth. It helps to cover the tooth’s soft tissues, which are specifically at risk for damage from bacteria and often lead to cavities. If you have had cavities, fillings, and root canals before, we may recommend this type of preventive dental care to minimize their return. This treatment is also an excellent way for children to avoid the onset of cavities.

Dental Cleanings: Every six months, you should have a general tooth cleaning. This process is very effective at removing surface problems. However, we may recommend a deep cleaning for those who have the early stages of gingivitis or gum disease. This process removes more of the bacteria and buildup of plague located below the gum line and between your teeth. It may help to prevent periodontal disease, a painful condition in which your teeth are at risk. This treatment is an essential type of preventative dental care service, so you should not put it off if you need it

Fluoride Treatments: The use of fluoride is critical for many reasons. This mineral is a crucial component in making teeth strong and capable of holding up against the tough conditions it faces. Fluoride treatments are often recommended for those who are at risk for early tooth decay or may have some enamel wearing already.
