Out of all the things crucial for one's dental health, dental hygiene maintenance comes first. It helps prevent dental ailments like tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease and ensures the overall dental health of the patients, thus avoiding complex and costly dental procedures in the future. And that is why the dental team at Oak Tree Dental Care gives much importance to preventative dental care.
By following proper oral hygiene habits at home supplemented by regular dental visits, it is possible to keep almost all dental diseases at bay.
When you visit Oak Tree Dental Care for regular dental examinations every six months, we provide comprehensive hygiene services, including routine cleanings and guidance in proper home care. Practicing good oral hygiene is the first line of defense in preventing and treating oral diseases.
When patients visit us for dental visits at Oak Tree Dental Care, we examine their overall mouth and each tooth, conduct a detailed soft tissue exam, obtain dental X-rays if needed, followed by an oral cancer screening. After this, we proceed with a professional dental cleaning (prophylaxis) and answer doubts about at-home oral hygiene practices or any other concerns that the patient may have.
During your check-up at Oak Tree Dental Care, we will:
- Conduct a thorough dental examination
- Completely clean all surfaces of the patient's teeth
- Remove plaque, tartar, and dental stains using special instruments
- Polish and floss your teeth
- Provide teeth strengthening treatment if required
- Schedule a subsequent appointment, if needed
By following regular dental exams and cleanings, it is possible to reduce the onset of tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease.
In addition to dental check-ups and teeth cleaning, we may give additional guidance or treatments for the patient to help ward off potential oral health complications. This includes recommendations about good at-home oral hygiene practices, fluoride treatments, application of dental sealants, etc. For patients who are at high risk of cavities, a fluoride treatment help fight cavities and reduce tooth decay.
When dental sealants are applied to the areas of the teeth that are prone to cavities, sealants act as a protective barrier that prevents the accumulation of plaque and tartar, thus preventing cavities.
At Oak Tree Dental Care, our dentists Dr. Amin Tabatabaian and Dr. Subha, deliver the highest standards of dental excellence and help our patients achieve and maintain good oral health.
