Protecting Your Smile With Preventive Dental Care

Preventive Dental Care

Preventive dental care is your first line of defense against many oral health issues. That’s why Breeze Dental highly recommends maintaining routine dental exams and dental cleanings. In short, dental exams and cleanings detect issues early on while preventing new ones from occurring. Dental health issues like tooth decay, gum disease, infection, and tooth loss are common issues that many patients experience,

What is a Dental Exam?

Routine dental exams are performed every 6 months to detect issues such as decay, periodontal disease, infection, tooth development, and tooth loss. For some patients, dental X-rays may be part of the visit to further understand the mouth structure and underlying issues. Your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, jaw, and overall mouth structure. He or she will also review the dental X-rays. Upon the findings, the dentist will discuss underlying issues, if applicable, and recommended treatments such as dental cleanings.

What is a Dental Cleaning?

A dental hygienist performs dental cleanings to thoroughly remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and gum line. During this procedure, the hygienist uses a small mirror, scaler, and powered toothbrush. In brief, the hygienist searches for plaque and tartar using the small mirror. Once detected, the scaler is used to gently remove it. Next, the powered toothbrush and gritty toothpaste are used to scrub your teeth for a clean and polished look. 

He or she will also advise you of areas in your mouth that need more tooth brushing and flossing. In addition, they will advise you on how to best brush and floss for your unique needs. This is a great opportunity to discuss dental care habits as your hygienist is very knowledgeable about caring for teeth and gums.

Additional Notes

Just like a dental exam, it is recommended that patients have dental cleanings every 6 months. This is the best way to prevent buildup which often leads to decay, periodontal disease, infection, and tooth loss. Also, some patients may be recommended to have more dental exams and cleanings based on their individual needs. For example, those more prone to decay or gingivitis are likely to be recommended for a dental exam and cleaning every 3 to 4 months.
