at Oasis Family Dental for dental cleanings every six months.

What is Preventive Dentistry?

The definition of prevention is to stop something from happening. With preventive dentistry, our focus is to stop dental problems from ever occurring, by keeping teeth free of plaque and tartar buildup.  Preventive dental appointments generally involve:

  • A thorough dental cleaning and polishing of teeth
  • An examination of the teeth, mouth, and jaw for any obvious problems
  • X-rays to look inside the teeth and detect early tooth decay or issues with the roots of teeth
  • Fluoride treatment and sealants in the case of children
  • Education on the most up-to-date oral hygiene methods

Beyond Cleanings: Preventive Care from Specialists

At the Oasis Family Dental, not only do we provide regular cleanings and dental exams for the whole family, but we can provide specialty preventive care. What does this mean? One example would be extracting a primary tooth in a child when it fails to naturally loosen in the correct timeframe. Another procedure requiring a specialist would be wisdom teeth extraction. Early orthodontic treatment such as spacers and expanders are sometimes in order to prepare the mouth for future teeth straightening treatments. This all falls under the umbrella of preventive dental care. Many people find that it’s an added bonus to go to a dental office that offers all of these options under one roof.
