Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry helps you stay on top of your dental care needs. Instead of waiting until you have a dental issue such as a cavity, preventive dentistry seeks to prevent the same. This type of dentistry entails the dental care that you practice at home, and the professional dental care efforts of a dentist.

Station Dental offers preventive dentistry. Our crucial goal and priority are to ensure that our patients take charge of their dental health and well-being. We provide quality dental intervention in a comfortable environment to help you avoid common dental issues such as cavities and periodontal disease.

Preventive Dental Services

We offer an excellent range of preventive dental services, including:

Dental x-rays

Dental x-rays are essential in determining the actual state of your dental health. Sometimes, caries or tooth decay may be hidden to the eye. Dental x-rays help in the identification of early-onset cavities, among other issues.

Dental exams

During a dental exam, our dentist will carefully inspect your oral cavity to check for signs that may be indicative of dental issues. You should have a dental exam once every year.

Dental cleanings

Proper dental hygiene at home is great, and all, but professional dental cleanings are better. During a professional cleaning, the dentist or hygienist will gently and thoroughly remove any plaque and tartar from your teeth—this prevents gum disease and cavities.

Dental sealants

Dental sealants are plastic or resin coatings that protect the back teeth against tooth decay. We recommend dental sealants for patients who have deep fissures and children as both categories are highly prone to decay.

Fluoride treatments

Your teeth’s enamel needs fluoride to remain strong and healthy. Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that’s found in water and some foods. Unfortunately, your daily intake of fluoride may not meet your body’s requirements. That’s why frequent fluoride treatments at Station Dentist are essential.

Benefits of Preventive Dentistry

Being proactive about your dental health, instead of waiting until a toothache sends you to the dentist’s office, is beneficial in several ways:

  • Preventive dentistry protects your oral well-being which translates into overall well-being. Research has shown that some oral health issues may increase the risk of other diseases such as heart disease.
  • Regular preventive dental appointments enable you to avoid invasive dental procedures. The more frequently our dentist examines you, the higher the chances of catching something before it escalates into a full-blown dental problem.
  • Some dental procedures can be costly, even when you have dental insurance. You can avoid future costs by seeking early intervention for dental issues through preventive dentistry.
