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.
