PREVENTATIVE DENTISTRY SERVICES
Preventive dental care is the most critical step in achieving and maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile. Simply keeping up with routine dental cleanings and exams, practicing good oral hygiene, and avoiding sugary foods and drinks can help keep your teeth and gums healthy and prevent dental issues altogether.
Regular care at Pineland Family Dental can help to ensure that problems that do arise can be fixed simply and without having to undergo expensive, invasive procedures.
We recommend topical fluoride application for both children and adults to strengthen your teeth and help prevent cavities. This quick and simple procedure during your routine cleaning is a great way to help prevent new problems and strengthen teeth that already have fillings or crowns.
Having routine dental x-rays taken is essential for proper monitoring of your oral health. We utilize the latest digital equipment to limit radiation exposure to our patients and to provide the quickest and easiest preventative dentistry treatment.
Without x-rays, we are only able to see about 50% of your tooth structure, so we are not able to properly check for issues in-between the teeth. Our comprehensive x-rays allow us to not only diagnose cavities in your teeth but to check your jawbones for any issues that may be hidden.
