At Cosmetic Dentistry Associates, we do more than create beautiful smiles – we make sure that every patient who visits us has excellent oral health as well as aesthetics. A truly beautiful smile feels as good it looks and functions without pesky dental pain or other concerns that can fester into serious health problems. Our highly trained dentists provide comprehensive dental services that focus on prevention, providing you a healthy smile to last for a lifetime!
Here are some of the most popular preventive services that we have to keep your smile in it’s best shape for years to come.
Checkups and Cleanings
The most important preventive services that everyone should receive are dental checkups and cleanings. Dental checkups allow our expert dentists to review the inside and outside of your mouth with dental x-rays and visual exams. This helps to spot problems in your mouth early on before they develop into further issues.
Plus, dental cleanings are professional deep cleanings between the teeth and below the gum line. This allows your dentist to scrape away hardened tartar from your smile that would otherwise lead to tooth decay.
In the case that a dental patient has gum disease, a very common oral health concern, your dentist can help you revive the health of your gums with periodontal therapy. The type of therapy depends on the extent of your gum disease, but typically you can expect simple scaling and root planing to promote new, clean, healthy gum growth.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Another huge threat to oral health is oral cancer—especially if you’re a high risk dental patient like a smoker or alcoholic. These two factors greatly play into the development of oral cancer. The beginning stages can be difficult to spot on your own, so it’s important to visit your dentist for regular screenings during your preventive care appointments.
The basis of excellent oral health starts at a young age with a friendly relationship with your dentist. Bringing your children in to visit their dentist promotes positive dental experiences and guarantees that your child’s smile will be properly cared from the moment they develop their first tooth.
Schedule Your Visit Today
Everyone should receive preventive care at least every 6 months and any additional services as needed. If it’s been longer than 6 months since your last dental visit, or maybe your child just developed their first tooth—you need to give our office a call. We would be more than happy to schedule an appointment for you to receive the dental care your smile truly needs and wants. We work with you to find a time and date that will conveniently fit within your schedule!
