Routine teeth cleaning and checkups should be considered one of the backbones to preventative dentistry because this is when our dental professionals will give your teeth a thorough exam. This allows us to see and trouble areas that may be forming and treat those as soon as possible. Staying consistent with your routine checkups is one of the first things recommended by our preventative dentists.
Oral X-rays give our dentists the chance to see the bone structure of your mouth. This gives us a better picture of the structure health as well as will give us an indication if there are any trouble areas that will causes unnecessary pain in the future. By using oral x-rays during our preventative dentistry visits we are able to build up a timeline of images to get a visualization of how your mouth is changing.
Oral exams as well as teeth cleaning are the two essential parts of any dental checkup. While cleaning your teeth, your dentist will be able to examine if there are any problem areas that need to be treated. Without routine oral exams it would be incredibly difficult to spot and treat dental issues before they become more serious.
Fluoride is a mineral that is used by dentists to help build up the strength of your teeth. Fluoride works by building up the protective layer of the teeth as well as combating any plaque buildup that may occur. As you grow older your teeth will gradually become weaker and weaker, but fluoride can be beneficial with providing your teeth the extra strength that they need.
Other than plaque buildup a common danger for many patients around the United States is teeth grinding as well as tooth trauma. It is common for patients to grind their teeth while they sleep or throughout the day without meaning even noticing that they are doing it. With the use of our oral x-rays we can compare your teeth overtime to see if teeth grinding is present, and then help you find a solution to help protect your teeth. Often times this means wearing a custom fit mouth guard while you sleep to help protect your teeth.
