Preventive Dentistry

Preventive Dentistry at Dental Studio Group

Dental care that helps preserve good oral health is known as preventive dentistry. Regular dental exams and the development of healthy habits like brushing and flossing are both necessary. Taking care of your teeth begins early in infancy and continues all the way through adulthood.


The main objective of preventive dentistry is to help patients maintain the health of their natural teeth for as long as feasible. For anything significant in our lives to remain in excellent condition, care must be taken. Preventive Dentistry may help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, enamel wear, and other problems.

Typically preventive dental services would usually include scheduled oral evaluations, x-rays and routine cleanings. In some cases preventive care may include Fluoride Treatments.

Professional Cleanings:
Professional cleanings performed by a certified dentist or hygienist are just as important to your dental health as daily brushing and flossing. Using specialized tools and training, your hygienist or dentist will:

Remove plaque build-up from the surfaces of teeth. (Bacteria in the mouth form plaque, which collects on teeth and causes decay, gum disease, and gingivitis.)
Remove tartar from teeth surfaces. (Tartar, or calculus, is plaque that has become so hardened on the teeth that its removal requires special procedures. Tartar below the gum line is also an indicator of gum disease.)
Remove surface stains from teeth through polishing.

Regular examinations help detect and prevent health issues before they become serious. Consistent dental check-ups help catch problems when they are small and easier to treat. Left unattended, small treatable problems become worse and may require more extensive, expensive procedures to repair. Dental examinations generally include the following:

Gum Disease screening
Oral Cancer screening
Visual tooth decay evaluation
Visual gum disease examination
Gum pocket measurement and tracking
X-ray examination to detect: tooth decay, cysts, tumors, problems below the gums and other hidden issues.
