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.

"Our family has been going to Westlake Dental for over 30 years, and the kindness and professionalism has never changed. Everyone there is genuine and great! Thank you all for taking care of us!"
"I’m really happy here. I’ve been going here for about 3 years and was referred by a friend. First dentist I’ve found in a long time that I feel really cares about my teeth. My cleanings are timely and lots of attention to detail. I recently also got a new retainer and the mold was a perfect fit. Everyone is so pleasant and I’m very happy I’ve found a dentist I can trust."
"Excellent service. Friendly and kind, especially Dr. Lundy. My daughter was very frightened about getting her tooth pulled and he calmed her worries and had it out before she knew what was going on. The hygienist was excellent as well- for both myself and my daughter. Her kind smile and great stories pass the time quickly. Thank you, June and Dr. Lundy!"
"Let’s face it, going to the dentist isn’t something most of us look forward to but I have to say, I really don’t dread it anymore. Kathy is always on time and does a great job cleaning my teeth and I feel like I’ve just had a great visit with a good friend when I leave."
"I've been a patient here for over 15 years and actually enjoy going to this office for care and treatment. Very professional, caring, friendly and helpful. Feels like a family and they seem to enjoy working there. Technically adept both in the front office and with the latest in dental care and treatment (crowns while you wait!)."
"I've been happily using Westlake Dental Associates for several years. The staff is very friendly and I am always greeted by name and a smile. Drs. Wuesthoff and Lundy provide first class service and are quick to respond on those occasional after hours emergency calls. They use the latest high-tech dentistry equipment and techniques. They are truly the best!"
"I came to Dr. Lundy based on a friend's recommendation. I had not seen a dentist in over ten years. I found the whole experience to be amazing. I was initially greeted in a comfortable setting where Dr. Lundy got to know me and my concerns and/or fears. He was very reassuring. The whole process of getting x-rays, to a cleaning, and then having a cavity filled was great. I was never in any pain or even uncomfortable and he explained every step as he was going through the procedures. I will definitely be back in less than ten years!"
"This was my first visit to Westlake Dental Associates and it was such a friendly and welcoming environment that I felt at ease right away. My hygienist, Cathy, was patient and careful and Dr. Lundy was very thorough and took time to talk to me and answer my questions. It was a great overall experience. If you are at all dissatisfied with your current dental facility, I highly recommend giving Dr. Lundy and his office a try!"
