Preventive Care Explained
Preventive dental care minimizes exposure to oral health problems like gum disease and cavities. Routine examinations and cleanings not only keep these issues at bay but also help your dentist detect issues at an early stage.
Preventive dental care services include:
- Digital X-rays
- Fluoride treatments
- Oral Cancer screenings
At our facility at Glendale, our certified team of hygienists performs extensive dental cleaning to remove bacteria-causing plaque and food particles from your mouth.
Cleaning is important because many hard-to-reach areas in our mouth are difficult to clean, even with healthy oral hygiene. The grooves, ridges, and crannies in our mouths are areas most prone to bacterial plaque. Plaque accumulated in these areas can cause gum disease and cavities.
Your oral health significantly impacts your overall health. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent gum diseases. Gum diseases affect the health of your heart, stomach, and kidneys. Our dentists will perform a thorough analysis to identify any periodontal issues or decay during routine check-ups.
Regular check-ups allow us to identify problems at an early stage and prevent them from progressing into complex issues. During check-ups, if any problem is identified, we will discuss the right course of action with you in detail to help you choose the most effective treatment.
Our dentists in Glendale use digital X-rays to identify structural damage or gum disease. X-ray images reveal hidden problems that are hard to diagnose in a visual exam. Abscesses, infections, and damage in the gum line can be easily detected through digital X-rays.
The numerous benefits of digital X-rays include:
- They reveal images of structural health quickly.
- X-rays can be zoomed in, allowing dentists to thoroughly analyze the dental condition of their patients and perform better diagnostics.
- Compared to film-based traditional X-rays, digital X-rays use 90% radiation.
- Digital X-rays can be accessed from any computer.
- X-rays can be added digitally to patient files, allowing easy access to history in future appointments.
- Digital X-rays take less physical storage space and are good for the environment.
Oral Cancer Screening
An oral cancer screening is as important as any other type of health check-up—maybe even more so. Early identification of problems and oral health conditions that may cause cancer is essential to timely treat the problem.
Oral cancer can start developing anywhere in your mouth, including gums, cheeks, tongue, or lips. So, regular screenings are essential.
Regular screenings at our facility in Glendale focus on the health of your soft tissues to detect any signs of problems, and advanced VELscope® technology allows our dentists to detect pre-cancer and early signs of cancer.
Fluoride Products and Treatments
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that strengthens your teeth by bonding with your tooth enamel. Dentists use fluoride products and treatments to prevent tooth decay. We assess your oral hygiene to recommend a suitable amount of fluoride by performing an oral examination.
Our mission is to help you and your family maintain good oral hygiene and prevent complex dental issues. Our dentists in Glendale strive to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. If you are looking for professional preventive dental care services, we are one call away.
