Preventive Dentistry is the best possible way to protect and maintain your teeth for a lifetime.

Preventive Dentistry

Preventive Dentistry

Preventive care is very important in making sure that you maintain a healthy smile. Preventive care is the best possible way to protect and maintain your teeth for a lifetime. It will also save money in the long run keeping you from suffering through extensive procedures and keeping your mouth, teeth and gums healthy.

Also, careful and regular brushing, flossing and tongue cleaning go a long way to keeping a bright healthy smile.

Regular check ups are instrumental in helping your dentist in Huntington Beach to detect any problems before they get out of control and preventing tooth decay. It is important to teach children to care for their teeth at an early age and to take them for regular check ups. Regular check ups will allow the dentist to detect any problems children might have with their teeth and allow them to grow up with a beautiful smile and healthy teeth and gums.

Prophylaxis

Prophylaxis

Prophylaxis is a preventive procedure to keep your teeth and gums healthy. This procedure consists of a thorough cleaning and evaluation of your teeth and gums. This cleaning removes tartar from hard to reach areas and helps keep your smile bright.

Modern equipment is used to provide you with scaling, polishing and debridement if necessary. Our dentist in Huntington Beach recommends patients to have a professional cleaning every six months.

Fluoride Treatments

Prophylaxis

Fluoride treatments are done by our dentist to provide excellent oral health. Fluoride is a natural mineral that is found in food and water. Fluoride helps to prevent tooth decay and protect a tooth’s enamel. Fluoride treatments done at our dentist’s office in Huntington Beach have a higher concentration of fluoride to fight tooth decay and strengthen enamel.

Sealants

Prophylaxis

A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating that is applied by the dentist to the grooves on the chewing surface of the back teeth to protect them from decay. Some people have very deep grooves that require this sealant to cover this surface and keep germs and food particles out of the grooves.

Most children and teens who suffer from cavities at an early age do because they get food particles stuck on these hard to clean areas.

Applying a sealant is very short, easy and painless. Once the tooth is cleaned, a gel is placed on the chewing surface for a few seconds. The tooth is washed and dried and then the sealant is painted on the tooth. A light can be shined on it to help harden the sealant. This forms a shield that protects the tooth.

Cancer Screening

Prophylaxis

Early detection and diagnosis through cancer screenings are the keys in preventing and treating oral cancer. The goal is to discover oral, head and neck cancers soon if patients complain of pain, bleeding, otalgia or dysphagia. A careful examination of the mouth and neck done by our dentist should only take a few minutes and can be the key to preventing, treating and curing this cancer at an early stage.
