Preventive Care Q&A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care refers to dental treatments designed to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy. When dental problems are already present, you need dental restoration. Preventive care is meant to keep dental issues from developing in the first place. That way, you don’t need procedures like fillings, root canals, or dental crowns.

The team at Smiles of Fort Worth offers preventive dental care and interventions to deal with dental problems. However, with good preventive care, you may not need dental interventions or minor interventions with less frequency. That means less expensive dental procedures and less oral discomfort overall.

What does preventive care involve?

You practice preventive dental care at home every day by brushing and flossing. You can also protect your teeth by rinsing with water after eating or drinking sugary foods and beverages. Brush at least twice a day and floss daily to prevent dental health complications like tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.

Professional preventive dental care involves several components. At Smiles of Fort Worth, your preventive dental care includes:

  • A thorough professional dental cleaning with state-of-the-art tools to thoroughly remove plaque and bacteria
  • Regular X-rays to check for cavities and other dental issues
  • Regular examinations and check-ins with professional dental providers

Pediatric dentistry can also provide preventive fluoride treatments to protect against tooth decay.

As part of your preventive care, the Smiles of Fort Worth team can also answer any questions about the best techniques for maintaining dental hygiene at home. Talk to your provider during your preventive care visits to the Fort Worth office about any questions or concerns.

How often should I have preventive dentist visits?

Most people need preventive care visits twice a year. If you have a dental condition like gum disease, you might need more frequent preventive care visits. Your provider lets you know what you need to plan for your preventive dental care. The dental team focuses on prevention.

With preventive care you can count on, you can keep your teeth and gums healthy for years to come. Preventive care saves you from problems with smiling, speaking, and eating as you age and reduces your risk of dental pain and discomfort.
