Preventive dental care is the area of dental practice focused on avoiding dental decay, gum disease, and soft tissue problems before they arise or catching them in the earliest possible stages. As with so many areas of health and wellness, preventing issues before they occur is the best way to enhance outcomes.
Routine dental exams are a central feature of preventive dental care. These visits are quick, enjoyable, and informative. If you’re overdue for a dental exam, schedule one today to preserve and enhance your dental health.
Dental exams offer your dentist the opportunity to visually inspect your teeth and gums for signs of decay or disease. Advanced imaging provides insight into the interior areas of tooth and gum tissue.
Your dentist has the training and experience to detect issues in the very early stages, often before significant tooth or gum damage develops. This means you can treat the problems before a significant volume of tissue needs alteration.
Routine dental exams also check your soft tissues for abnormal changes. These changes sometimes indicate oral cancer, which can be very aggressive and cause serious harm in a short time. Early detection enables early intervention, which often improves outcomes.
Finally, your dental exams include a professional teeth cleaning. Your practitioner uses advanced technology and finely honed skills to remove all traces of plaque and bacteria from your teeth, including the spaces between teeth and just beneath the gumline.
Most people benefit from coming in for routine dental exams every six months or so. This timing ensures problems don’t have the chance to develop into serious issues before the intervention begins.
If you have existing dental decay or gum disease, you might need to come in for more frequent visits to resolve those matters. Your dentist lets you know the best timeline during your next visit.
