Information About Preventive Dentistry Services

At The Dental Office Encino, we understand that it can be a challenge for you to keep your teeth healthy. There are a lot of accidents that can lead to dental injuries, and there are lots of foods and beverages that can lead to oral tooth decay. With a bit of time and effort, it is possible to reduce the risk of developing oral health problems and protect your oral health moving forward.

The team from The Dental Office Encino has a variety of preventive dentistry tools and techniques that we can use to help you keep your mouth healthy. It is always better to prevent problems from developing than to fix them after they have already appeared, so learn more about our preventive dentistry services below.

What Is Preventive Dentistry?

Preventive dentistry refers to all tools and techniques that we use to protect your mouth from oral decay, injury, and other significant oral health concerns.

Some of the services we offer include:

Our goal is to provide you with simple, straightforward, and cost-effective services that can help you prevent gingivitis, periodontal disease, cavities, and a number of other issues. Our goal is to prevent you from having to deal with costly dental issues down the road and ensure you have great oral health.

What Happens During a Preventive Dentistry Visit?

When you come to our office for a preventive dentistry visit, the first thing we will do is identify potential problems. We do this by thoroughly cleaning your teeth. We will brush your teeth, floss them, and use special dental tools to remove plaque and tartar that may have built up.

Then, we will craft a treatment plan to help you fix any issues we find. During your dental exam, our dentist will examine your soft tissues, gum, and teeth. We will look for any possible signs of infection.

During your visit, we may recommend X-rays or other types of oral Imaging. We do this because some areas of your mouth are hard to see, and we want to make sure we do not miss anything. We want to catch any serious injuries or illnesses as early as possible, and this is an important step of the routine cleaning process.

How Does a Fluoride Treatment Help?

One of the most important parts of the visit is a fluoride treatment. Fluoride strengthens your enamel and can prevent cavities from developing. It is designed to bind with the various minerals in your teeth, acting as an extra layer of protection to help your teeth better resist the acid produced by bacteria.

There is a chance that you already have fluoride in your water. You should always use toothpaste that has fluoride in it. Then, when you come to our office, we will further reinforce your teeth with extra fluoride treatments.
