What Is Preventive Dental Care?

 In Uncategorized

Preventive dentistry involves oral care that includes education, treatment, and the practice of maintaining healthy gums. Ranging from daily flossing and brushing to bi-annual dental cleanings, these tasks can go a long way in preventing cavities, enamel wear, and gum disease. We, at Southwood Dental Studio in London, offer a wide range of services, including preventive dental care.

What You Can Expect During Preventive Dental Services in Aurora

A wide range of procedures can be performed at the dental chair for anyone receiving preventive care, regardless of their age. Receiving a dental examination is a great form of prevention.  The primary purpose of these appointments is to detect potential dental decay problems. If the dentist deems it necessary, they may also take dental X-rays during the appointment.

Based on their assessment, they may recommend teeth cleaning or other treatments, which will be helpful in the prevention of gum disease and cavities. Depending on how regularly you have managed your oral care at home and the amount of time that has passed, your dentist may ask you to come in for more than one appointment. This could include gum disease treatment in case there is an infection present.
