Preventive Dentistry in Pearland, TX

When it comes to dentistry, prevention is the best medicine. The more dental work that needs to be done to a tooth, the more chances there are for future issues to occur. By investing your time into preventive treatments, you can save money and avoid hassle later on.

Popular preventive dental care treatments:

  • Dental Checkups – One of the best things you can do for your oral health is also the simplest. Be sure to visit your dentist at least twice a year for a thorough examination. By making sure you visit your dentist regularly and continue to practice routine dental care, you stop an issue when it is small and manageable instead of dealing
  • with an issue only when it causes pain. Your regular checkups are also an amazing opportunity for your dentist to conduct an oral cancer screening. Early detection of oral cancer can lead to a 90% increased chance of survival.
  • Dental Sealants – Think of sealants like thin and clear raincoats for your molars. For the areas where food can get trapped and lead to decay and cavities, sealants keep them out. Commonly used on children’s molars and premolars since children’s enamel is weaker than adults. Also very smart to get them on adult molars and premolars when the adult teeth break the gums.
  • Fluoride Treatments – Fluoride helps the teeth stay healthy and repair decay that is done. We often do not get enough fluoride in our diet, so a treatment conducted by a professional can deliver a higher dose of fluoride and help the teeth stay healthy.
