What is Preventative Dentistry?
Preventative dentistry refers to a variety of techniques that are used not to treat severe oral health issues, but to prevent them from occurring. By making regular visits to a preventive dentistry practice, you can maintain a high level of oral health, and avoid potentially devastating issues like gum disease, tooth decay, root canals, and other severe oral health problems.
Preventive Dentistry Techniques – An Overview
Preventative dentistry encompasses a wide variety of concepts and techniques. At Westlake Village Dental Associates, we focus on the following methods:
- Regular 6-Month Cleanings And Screenings – Dental cleanings and screenings are the most important preventive dentistry techniques at Westlake Dental Associates.
By seeing patients regularly, and by performing comprehensive examinations and evaluations that include x-rays and thorough dental cleanings, Dr. Thomas Wuesthoff and Dr. Scott Lundy can help prevent and treat common dental problems like gingivitis and tooth decay.
- Sealants – Dental sealants are specialized plastic coatings that may be applied to teeth which are vulnerable to decay, like molars. Remaining viable for 5+ years, these treatments are a fantastic way to prevent the development of cavities before fillings are required.
- Fluoride Treatments – Fluoride treatments are used to help harden teeth that have been attacked by tooth decay. An advanced fluoride compound is applied which helps resist tooth decay, and encourages the strengthening of damaged tooth enamel.
- Fillings – When a cavity has started but is caught early enough (usually with check-up x-rays), fillings can be powerful preventive dentistry tools when used to halt tooth decay that’s still in the early stages of development.
Of course, preventive dentistry doesn’t end at the dentist’s office. Our team also encourages patients to take control of their oral health by implementing a regimen of brushing and flossing twice daily, avoiding excessive sugar consumption, and minimizing or quitting smoking when needed.

“I couldn't ask for a better place. They're always honest about what I need. I get text confirmations for appointments and they offer after 5 visits which are fantastic if I can't get off work early. The staff are very nice, easy to talk to. I love my dental hygeinist! Nothing but love for this place, well as much as you can have for the dentist!”
“I really had a great experience with Dr. Lundy. This was the first time I was got a new crown in one sitting. They have the most advanced equipment. The only bummer is I moved to Dallas and I have not found the same quality dentist. I plan to schedule another visit when I'm in CA in a few months. He is that good!”
“The staff is welcoming and you can tell they all love their job and have good chemistry. Dr Wuesthoff helped me understand everything before jumping in and instantly hit it off. Coming from someone who hates the dentist, this practice actually made it enjoyable. And that's saying a LOT!”
“By far my best experience. First time that someone takes the time to explain me step by step everything that was going on. I was always asked if I was ok if needed anything, almost like a royal treatment 😉 thnx to Lundy for getting my smile @ 110%.”
