Preventive Dentistry

Dental Emergency

Same Day Emergency Appointment Available

Preventive dental care is a practice dedicated to keeping a healthy mouth — this aids in avoiding gum disease, cavities, plaque, and tooth loss.

This can be practised by brushing at least twice daily and visiting your dentist for annual dental cleanings. These practices are followed to ensure that teeth are clean, healthy, and white.

Preventive dentistry helps you keep your teeth and means you need less dental treatment. The two leading causes of tooth loss are decay and periodontal disease. The better you prevent or deal with these two problems, the more chance you will have of keeping your teeth for life.

Oral Check-up & Clean

Visit your dentist at least twice a year for a dental examination to check for any problems in the mouth. If you’re at great risk for dental problems, you’ll likely benefit from more frequent dental visits.

If you’re at low risk for dental problems, you may see the same benefits from only one visit per year. Dental cleanings and exams aid dentists in identifying issues and taking care of them before they can become serious

If you have a dental insurance, find out what’s covered in the package. Many insurance plans include two preventive dental visits a year.

Mouthguards & Splints

Mouthguards are dental appliances worn to protect the mouth when playing sports. They protect your teeth and cushion blows to the face and teeth, preventing breakage and other damage to your teeth and soft tissues.

Night splints or night guards have the same functions as those of mouthguards, but they are worn at night during sleep. They protect your teeth from excessive gnashing and grinding, which happens as a result of bruxism.

Bruxism is the unconscious and excessive grinding of the upper and lower arches most prevalent during sleep. It affects not only the teeth but can also put strain your jawbone causing headaches and soreness.

Most sufferers are unaware that they have bruxism. Their teeth, however, show the effects of bruxism.

Intraoral X-Rays

Intraoral X-rays are the most common X-ray performed by dental practices. Several types of intraoral X-rays, such as bite-wing, periapical, and occlusal, show different aspects of teeth.

Intraoral X-rays are taken inside the mouth. They give detailed images of the tooth, bone, and supporting tissues of the mouth.

Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants are resin-based coatings painted on the grooves of the permanent back teeth. The sealant forms a protective coating that keeps food and bacteria from getting stuck in the tiny grooves in the teeth and leading to stooth decay.

Resin-based fissure sealants should be applied to the permanent molars of all children as early after eruption as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are sealants?

Sealants are thin plastic-like coatings applied to the crevices present on the chewing surface of back teeth – premolars and molars. The sealant flows deep into the grooves, acting as a barrier, so that plaque and food do not get stuck and cause cavities.

How often should one brush and floss their teeth?

We recommend brushing and flossing at least twice a day, once in the morning, preferably after breakfast and once in the night after dinner and just before bedtime.
