Preventive Dentistry Procedures

At ToothHQ, we genuinely believe prevention is key when it comes to a happy, healthy, beautiful smile. Our dental staff prefers preventive dentistry versus restorative dentistry. Consequently, we use a modern approach to dental care that allows our dentists to detect symptoms of much more serious issues so we can treat them quickly.

  • Deep Teeth Cleaning

    Also known in dentistry as root planing & scaling, deep teeth cleaning includes removing plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth. A dental hygienist will perform scaling and root planing using electric, ultrasonic, or manual scaling instruments.

  • Fluoride Treatment

    Professional fluoride treatments contain a high concentration of fluoride. Dentists apply this solution to a person’s teeth to improve oral health and reduce the risk of cavities. In addition, fluoride is typically used in the form of a gel, solution, or foam.

  • Mouth Guards

    Dental mouth guards are designed to absorb and disperse destructive forces of impact and mitigate traumatic injury to mouth tissues.

  • Oral Cancer Screening

    Early detection and treatment gives you the best chance of surviving oral cancer. Gum disease affects not only lifetime smokers but also young non-smokers. Therefore, oral cancer screenings should be a routine component of every regular dental exam to prevent gum disease.

How to Prevent Gum Disease 

The most crucial element of preventive dental care is you. Preventive dental services are only valid if you regularly visit our dental office to utilize them. Furthermore, the significance of keeping a good oral hygiene routine at home can’t be exaggerated. Daily adequate teeth brushing and flossing will go a long way, removing the dental plaque responsible for gum disease and tooth loss.

FAQ for DENTAL BONDING Treatment

No, dental bonding isn’t painful. When Dr. Hamlett or Dr. La Mastra applies bonding to repair a tooth, they are only working on the surface of the tooth. Some people may experience tooth sensitivity after the procedure is finished, but this is often easily managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and typically goes away quickly.
