What Is Preventive Dentistry?
Think of preventive dentistry as proactive rather than reactive. The aim of this aspect of general dentistry considers all treatments designed to keep your teeth and gums vibrant and strong for a lifetime.
According to the American Dental Association, it is recommended that patients maintain two preventive dental cleanings and exams per year. Maintaining this preventive schedule significantly reduces the risk of oral health issues like tooth decay, gum disease, infections, and more. If you already have gum disease, Dr. Roy Kim can administer treatments like scaling and root planing to remove plaque and tartar above and below the gumline before smoothing the tooth roots to allow your gums to reattach.
Your twice-yearly dental check-up includes:
- Complete exam of your teeth and gums
- Screening for oral cancer
- Monitoring any changes since your last visit
- Digital x-rays to see beneath the surface
Some patients are more prone to cavities or may have other oral health issues. If this is your case, Dr. Kim may recommend specialized services like fluoride treatments or dental sealants to keep your teeth free from tooth decay.
At Healthy Living Dentistry, we want to reduce any dental mishaps and complications by following preventive dental guidelines.
We Can Restore Missing Teeth
Missing one or several teeth can devastating to more than just your self-confidence. A gap in your smile can introduce more tooth loss as teeth start to shift out of their position and the jaw bone recedes.
Patients who are interested in restoring a space in their smile might be interested in our durable and reliable dental restoration, including:
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
- Partial dentures
- Full dentures
At our Foothill Ranch dental office, we help our patients enhance their smiles and quality of life.
