Preventative Care (Cleaning, Fluoride, Sealants, Oral Cancer Screening )

Preventative care is specifically designed to prevent tooth decay from occurring or getting worse and can check for other signs of problems like loose restorations, oral cancer or periodontal disease.

What is Preventative Care?

Preventative care is designed to help prevent tooth decay as well as other intra-oral problems from happening. Preventative care can involve professional cleanings, examinations, fluoride treatments, sealants and oral cancer screenings. At Sudbury Dental, we provide a range of preventative treatment options to help maintain the health and overall vibrancy of your smile. We customize care to each individual and can work with your busy schedule.

Why do you need Preventative Care?

It is important that you visit the dentist once every six months for an examination and professional cleaning. Preventative care is specifically designed to prevent tooth decay from occurring or getting worse and can check for other signs of problems like loose restorations, oral cancer or periodontal disease. Our goal is to provide comprehensive, professional care for the whole family. We can pre-schedule your appointments with us and remind you before you’re due to come in.

What makes you a good candidate for Preventative Care?

Every patient is a good candidate for preventative care treatment. Some procedures are necessary for every patient, such as cleanings and examinations. Other options are ideal for patients on a case-by-case basis, like sealants and fluoride treatments. We can work with you to find the preventative care options that are right for your smile. By taking good care of your teeth, you are less likely to experience more severe intra-oral problems.

What happens during a typical Preventative Care Appointment?

A typical six-month appointment involves a cleaning that is performed by our licensed dental hygienist. The hygienist cleans your teeth and removes heavy buildup that could cause tooth decay. They will then check your gums for signs of both gingivitis as well as periodontal disease. Dr. Kang will then come in to perform the examination and do an oral cancer screening. If needed or requested, we can provide you with fluoride treatment as well as sealants. Sealants are designed to protect your teeth with a clear coating. We will help in recommending products as well as hygiene techniques to better care for your teeth.
