You’ve probably heard health experts say that prevention is the best medicine. The same is especially true when it comes to dentists treating the teeth of patients. At Vaheed Bayette DDS, our San Diego, CA dentists take great pride in providing preventative dental care for patients, as we believe it’s one of the most important aspects of our practice. Whether it’s routine checkups or professional cleanings, we can save you time and your teeth from any unnecessary pain. Read about the preventative dental services our dentists use to help patients.

What Is Preventative Dental Care?

General preventative dental care deals with maintaining your overall oral health while also preventing the development of tooth decay and gum disease. Some treatments may include the use of fluoride, dental cleanings, routine checkups, and education on oral hygiene habits like brushing and flossing. The goal of preventative dental care is to catch and treat dental issues in their earliest stages before they become more serious and costly to treat.

Our Preventative Dentistry Treatments

Routine Checkups

It’s important to visit your dentist twice a year, or every six months for routine checkups. Attending these appointments is vital since it ensures that any decay, signs of gum disease, or damage is caught early and swiftly dealt with. During your visit, your dentist will take a look at your teeth and gums as well as address any questions you may have.

Dental Cleanings

You’ll also receive a dental cleaning during your visit to scrape away unwanted bacteria and polish your teeth. Even for patients who are consistent in their oral health routine, having dental cleanings are important since they remove plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach places in your smile. That way, you won’t have to worry about any unexpected dental problems.

Fluoride Treatment

Another popular form of preventative measure is a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that fights against cavities and helps the body use calcium and other minerals to repair weakened tooth enamel and strengthen your smile against bacteria. This even has the potential of slowing down or reversing the process of decay caused by minor cavities.
