Are Routine Visits Necessary?
The Importance of Preventive Care
Preventive care is the best way to catch potential oral health issues early and treat them before they develop into larger problems. By identifying an issue like tooth decay or gum disease before it becomes severe, you can keep your mouth in good health. This also saves you time and money. You’ll be able to get the proper treatment right away, ensuring that there are no further complications.
Maintain Your Smile
Cleanings & X-Rays
Regular teeth cleanings and oral exams are the most important part of preventive care. By coming into our office every six months to see Dr. Winslow and our team of hygienists, we’ll be able to look for signs of cavities and gum disease. We also use advanced, digital x-rays to look for hidden oral health issues and ensure you’ve got a clean bill of health.
Strengthen Your Teeth
Fluoride treatments can be performed during any routine dental appointment. The procedure simply involves the application of a highly-fluoridated gel to your teeth. This gel helps remineralize and strengthen enamel that has been affected by minor decay or weakened by oral acid. Regular fluoride treatments keep your teeth stay strong and can help prevent cavities.
Dental sealants are made of a special type of liquid resin, which is painted onto your teeth after a cleaning. Then, this resin is hardened with UV light to create a strong, transparent barrier that protects your teeth from direct contact with oral bacteria, acid, and food particles. In turn, this prevents the formation of cavities. With proper application and healthy hygiene habits, sealants can last 10+ years. Typically, only the more cavity-susceptible rear teeth are treated with sealants.
Catch the Signs Early
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are the best way to detect early signs of oral cancer. We provide screenings as part of your routine oral exam every six months. Dr. Winslow will look for any potential abnormalities or oral lesions that may require further attention, giving you peace of mind.
